According to the show’s synopsis, the group “are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.”

It was recently announced Kim Cattrall would play the future version of Duff’s character Sophie.

This Is Us co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger have created the series, while original How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas serve as producers.

In a statement upon the show’s announcement, Isaac and Elizabeth said: “Carter and Craig’s iconic original series revolutionised the half-hour comedy, and we are so honoured to be carrying the torch forward for the next generation – and with Hilary Duff no less!


“We can’t wait for audiences to meet Sophie and her crew, and watch them come into their own and find love in modern-day New York City.

The 10-episode series will debut on Hulu in the US in 2022.
