Filming for “How I Met Your Father,” the spinoff series of the hit American sitcom “How I Met Your Mother,” is finally underway.

The show’s production team announced they have started filming by showing behind-the-scenes photos, on the series’ official Facebook page today, Sept. 2.


“Filming for How I Met Your Father starts now! [How I Met Your Father] is coming soon to Hulu,” it stated.


Actress Hilary Duff, who plays the lead character Sophie, can be seen in two different sets — a bar and what appears to be a home with a leather couch. Her co-star Chris Lowell can also be seen showing off his script.

“How I Met Your Father” will be directed by Pamela Fryman, who was also part of the original show.

“How I Met Your Father” co-creator Isaac Aptaker, meanwhile, showed part of the series’ set through his Twitter page, also yesterday.

The behind-the-scenes photo showed Duff and Lowell filming a scene at a bar, which appears to be different from the “How I Met Your Mother” gang’s hangout place, MacLaren’s.

“Day one, [How I Met Your Father],” Aptaker said.


“How I Met Your Father” will also star Francia Raisa, Suraj Sharma, Tien Tran, Tom Ainsley and Daniel Augustin. It was ordered at Hulu last April, with the original series’ creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas also onboard as executive producers.

The show follows Sophie who tells her son the story of how she met his father. It brings the audience to the year 2021, where she and her friends try to figure out who they are, what they want in life and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps.

“How I Met Your Mother” starred actors Josh Radnor, Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan. Bob Saget provided the voice for an older version of Radnor’s character Ted Mosby. The sitcom ran for nine seasons from 2005 to 2014. JB
