How I Met Your Father Season 2 - What We Know So Far

The CBS series "How I Met Your Mother" drew a lot of fans over the course of its nine-season run, with many viewers invested in the romantic trials and tribulations of Ted Mosby — played by Josh Radnor in present-day and Bob Saget in the future — as he searched for love. The Saget version of Mosby, however, proved that the character did find love, as he was narrating the story to his children.

The show's success spawned a spinoff series on Hulu, titled "How I Met Your Father." Created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who previously worked together on "This Is Us" and also co-created "Love, Victor," the spinoff is focused on Sophie, played by Hilary Duff in the present and Kim Cattrall in the future. Cattrall takes on narrating duties this time around, citing to her son that she met his father on a night of adventures in the pilot episode, leaving a lot of contenders.

Here's what we know about the second season of "How I Met Your Father."

Season 2 will have twice the number of episodes of Season 1

"How I Met Your Father" has been confirmed for a Season 2. What's more, the show will double its season order, with 20 episodes ordered for the second season, in contrast to Season 1, which had 10 episodes (via Variety). It is likely that the second season will premiere on Hulu around the same time as the first, which made its debut in January 2022. This means we can expect to see "How I Met Your Father" back sometime around January 2023.

Many of the main cast members are also expected to return in the second season. This includes both Hilary Duff and Kim Cattrall, as well as Chris Lowell, Francia Raisa, Suraj Sharma, Tom Ainsley, and Tien Tran. Josh Peck, who plays Sophie's love interest Drew on the show, is unlikely to come back, as he and Sophie broke up in the season finale. Daniel Augustin, however, who plays Ian, is likely to make an appearance, as the first season ended with him and Sophie reuniting after his research funding was cut short.

Another cast member unlikely to return is Ashley Reyes, who plays Hannah, fiancée of Sharma's Sid. Since the show's debut, Reyes has become a lead character on the CW series "Walker" (per Deadline), which also got a renewal for its third season (via Collider).

The show's second season is likely to continue the premise set forth by the first in exploring Sophie's attempts to find love. With the series having established that Sophie met her son's father for the first time on the night of the show's pilot, Sophie's steps on that night are sure to be re-traced more during the second season.
