If, like me, you find And Just Like That … unwatchable without Samantha Jones, and if, like me, you’re still pissed that Disney+ canceled the Lizzie McGuire reboot over “adult themes,” then I have the justice we all deserve. Today, Hulu released a trailer for How I Met Your Father, the sequel to How I Met Your Mother. Hilary Duff and Kim Cattrall play younger and older versions of the lead character, Sophie, with Duff’s Sophie navigating her dating life in the year 2021, and Cattrall’s Sophie telling the story of it all to her son in some indiscriminate, hopefully horny future.
In case you couldn’t tell, there’s going to be sex in here. In one clip, Duff wears a tie-dye shirt and space buns, a fit that looks verbatim lifted from the promotional pics of the Lizzie McGuire reboot that never came to be. I’d like to think of this as Duff’s clapback to Disney+ for not letting a 30-something Lizzie have a sex life. In this universe, Lizzie’s thriving. Lizzie’s fucking.
Clearly, this is the dream team. While we still don’t know much about this new show, I would watch these two women do anything.
