This is going to be legen–dary! ‘How I Met Your Father’ is one of the shows everyone is looking forward to watching in 2022. Here’s a rundown of all the latest news about the ‘HIMYM’ spinoff.

How I Met Your Father is the highly-anticipated spinoff of the hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which ran for 9 seasons from 2005 to 2014. The sitcom features a brand-new cast of characters and story, led by Younger and Lizzie McGuire alum Hilary Duff.

The official synopsis for the series reads: “In the near future, Sophie is telling her son the story of how she met his father: a story that catapults us back to the year 2021 where Sophie and her close-knit group of friends 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.”

The show was officially announced in April 2021. Filming began a few months later in August 2021. The first trailer dropped in December 2021. From the cast to the release date, HollywodLife has all the latest updates about How I Met Your Father.

‘How I Met Your Father’ Release Date

How I Met Your Father will premiere on January 18, 2022. The cast announced the premiere date in a November 2021 video. The first season will consist of 10 episodes. After the series premiere on January 18, the show will drop new episodes weekly on Hulu.

Where To Watch

You will be able to watch How I Met Your Father on Hulu. Unlike How I Met Your Mother, the spinoff series will air only the streaming service. How I Met Your Mother aired on CBS during its run.

‘How I Met Your Father’ Cast & Crew

Hilary Duff will play Sophie, an aspiring street photographer and hopeless romantic who cannot seem to get out of her own way when it comes to love. The older version of Sophie will be played by Sex and the City alum Kim Cattrall. The older Sophie will be explaining how she met her son’s father. From the looks of the trailer, it appears Kim will be narrating the series, similar to what Bob Saget did with the original series.

“I’ve been incredibly lucky in my career to play some wonderful characters and I’m looking forward to taking on the role of Sophie. As a huge fan of How I Met Your Mother, I’m honored and even a little nervous that [HIMYM creators] Carter and Craig would trust me with the sequel of their baby,” Hilary told Deadline when the show was announced. “Isaac and Elizabeth are brilliant, and I can’t wait to work alongside them and all of their genius. Just fan-girling over here getting to join the Hulu Originals and 20th families. I realize these are big shoes to fill and I’m excited to slip my 6 ½s in there.”

Christopher Lowell will play Jesse, who is smart with a bit of an edge and cynical about love. He’s an aspiring musician who works as an Uber driver to make ends meet and lives with his best friend Tom. Suraj Sharma stars as Sid, who is roommates and best friends with Jesse. He’s a new bar owner and plays the optimist to Jesse’s cynicism.

Francia Raisa plays Valentina, Sophie’s roommate. She’s an aspiring stylist and Sophie’s great friend. She’s impulsive and adventurous and Sophie relies on Valentina’s ability to cheer her up when she gets down. Valentina has just come back from London Fashion Week with the gorgeous and British Charlie, who is played by Tom Ainsley. Charlie is an aspiring model who fell in love with Sophie’s roommate Valentina (an aspiring stylist) at London Fashion Week and followed her to New York. The son of conservative aristocrats, Charlie’s a great guy but he’s been living in a rich person’s bubble his whole life.

Tien Tran stars as Ellen, Jesse’s adopted sister, who just moved to New York from a small farming town after separating from her wife. Ellen’s more comfortable on an organic lettuce field than in a Brooklyn dive bar. Additional recurring stars include Daniel Augustin, Ashley Reyes, and Josh Peck.

The sitcom was created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who famously write/produce This Is Us. Isaac and Elizabeth are executive producers along with Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, Pam Fryman, and Adam Londy. Carter and Craig were the original series’ creators. Pam will be directing the pilot. In addition to starring in the series, Hilary is also a producer.

Development Details

The first season of How I Met Your Father will consist of 10 episodes. Like HIMYM, the spinoff will use multi-camera and single-camera methods.

Since the original series ended in 2014, a lot has changed in the world of dating. Modern dating apps have become the norm for most millennials and meeting someone has become increasingly more difficult even with so many options, which is something How I Met Your Father will explore. In the trailer, Sophie admits she’s been on 87 Tinder dates in one year!

While How I Met Your Father will feature a new story and will not be a continuation of HIMYM, the creative team is fully supportive of the spinoff. “Kids, I’m going to tell you an incredible story: It’s the story of how two writers got lucky enough to make their dream TV show for nine seasons and now get to pass the torch to an inspired new creative team with their own incredible story to tell, the story of How I Met Your Father,” Carter and Craig said in a statement, per Deadline. “We are honored by their passion and vision, and look forward to helping them tell a legendary new story. Thanks to all the HIMYM fans out there who waited for it.”

While it’s not out of the question, don’t expect How I Met Your Mother stars to pop up on the spinoff. “I have given How I Met Your Mother very little thought,” Neil Patrick Harris, who played Barney Stinson, told TV Guide in 2018. He said that “chapter is so complete and full of story.” He added, “I really just look back on that chapter with great fondness. I just don’t feel like there’s anything left to do, really.”

Josh Radnor, who played Ted Mosby, told GQ in 2018, “I almost never think about [the show]. It’s a weird thing, when you haven’t done something in almost four years. But people will still come up to me and say, ‘I just watched the series for the eighth time, all the way through.’ And I’m like, ‘That’s too much. You’ve gotta move on.’ … It’s such a part of certain people’s lives.”

Street Photography by Juri Nesterov Documents Ukrainian Life Across Decades

Kyiv. 2020. All images shared with permission.

Photography, and street photography, in particular, has the power to preserve the fleeting, framing the brief encounters and dalliances that sometimes end as quickly as they began. This impulse to document the momentary permeates throughout Juri Nesterov‘s body of work that serves as a visual record of those he’s witnessed within the last five decades. “When I look into the camera’s viewfinder, something inexplicable happens: thousands of images appear in my memory,” he writes.

Nesterov was born in 1954 in Krasnyi Luch, a city in the Luhansk province of what is now Ukraine. At the time, the area was part of Soviet Russia, and this shift in borders parallels the photographer’s practice, which often centers on the transient and ephemeral nature of the human experience.

Because of revolution, war, and collapse, Nesterov’s photos also chronicle life under the control of governments that have since dissolved, and the context of being surrounded by such inability makes his focus on the fundamental humanity of his subjects even more impactful. He says:

After a while, looking at my prints, I feel like the photos are electric. Most of the time I hear the question: “Where was this picture taken” or “What kind of camera? What lens?” I really want to answer: “in the world of people with their thoughts, disappointments, and hopes.”…Does it matter where exactly I pressed the camera button?… Look at the world, we all have the same starry sky.

Nesterov worked in journalism for many years and has exhibited his photos throughout Europe, although some of his prints housed at a Ukrainian museum were destroyed during shelling a few years back. Head to Flickr to explore an incredible archive of his photos that until recently, he was still developing in his kitchen in Kyiv.

Kourtney Kardashian Says She Got Therapy After She ‘Couldn’t Stop Crying’ Following Scott Disick Split

Published

Kourtney Kardashian revealed therapy has made her ‘really sensitive’ and helped her deal with an ‘abundance of feelings.’

Kourtney Kardashian, 42, revealed she’s been on a “therapy journey” since 2017 — which would have began shortly after her split from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, 39. “I would just start crying all the time,” she said in Bustle magazine’s March 3 issue of what made her seek mental health support. “‘I just have feelings; like, an abundance of them,” she added, noting that working with a therapist has made her more “sensitive.”

The Poosh founder and former beau Scott began their rocky romance back in 2007, and welcomed three kids together: Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 6. Shortly after the birth of Reign, and amid Scott’s on-going struggles with drugs and alcohol, the pair called things quits. Over the years, Scott has maintained a close relationship with the Kardashian-Jenner clan — particularly with Kourtney’s younger sister Khloe Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner. Kourtney has admitted that Scott continuing to be included by her family members on vacations and holidays made moving on from the relationship more difficult.

After engaging in therapy, she says she experienced “growth” that helped her move forward. “I see the growth that comes from those unhappy places which make it all worth it. I’m like, ‘If we didn’t go through these roller coasters, you wouldn’t get to the good part,’” she added.

Kourt is now in a much happier place in her life: the reality star began a romance with fiancé Travis Barker, 46, in early 2021 that lead to a proposal just 10 months later. This marks Kourtney’s first time being engaged, and the pair — affectionately named “Kravis” — seem happier than her. After her split from Scott, the 42-year-old also dated model Younes Bendjima on-and-off.

The health guru has previously opened about therapy, revealing she has a “double session” weekly to Health magazine. “I look forward to it every week! Having that awareness, I find that I can almost catch things before they become a bigger deal,” she said. “When those harder moments do happen, I think, ‘What’s the lesson that I’m supposed to be learning?’” she pondered.
