How I Met Your Father Due in March

Disney+ will premiere How I Met Your Father with the first two episodes on March 9 under the Star banner.

The 10-episode How I Me Your Mother spin-off launched last week on Hulu, where it was poorly reviewed.

One of the better notices was posted by Decider: “There are enough good things about the show to think it’ll work eventually, but it might never click on all cylinders like the parent show did at its peak.

“The series stars Hilary Duff, Christopher Lowell, Francia Raisa, Tom Ainsley, Tien Tran, Suraj Sharma and, in recurring roles, Kim Cattrall, Daniel Augustin, Ashley Reyes and Josh Peck.

Reads the blurb: “In the near future, Sophie (Hilary Duff) 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 Hollywood Reporter has just posted this video about what’s in store for the friends courtesy of Mother’s high-flying creators.

Reports Deadline: “Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, whose 10-year career trajectory at 20th Television to date has taken them from novice writers to top showrunners with multiple shows on the air, have signed a big new three-year overall deal with the Disney television studio for their The Walk-Up Company.

“Aptaker and Berger are executive producers and co-showrunners alongside Dan Fogelman of 20th Television’s flagship drama series, This is Us, now in its sixth and final season on NBC.

“They also developed and executive produce 20th TV’s HIMYM spinoff series, How I Met Your Father, which just launched on Hulu, and are behind Hulu/20th TV’s Love, Victor — now in production on its third season — as creators and executive producers.”

Disney+ will roll out the series weekly, starting a week before the first season ends on Hulu.

Frustratingly, it continues the streamer’s illogical practice of making its international subscribers wait weeks and weeks for hot new Hulu or US TV shows whereas had they been picked up by TVNZ under its previous Disney deal, they probably would have been fast-tracked OnDemand.

Meanwhile, there’s still no sign of The Wonder Years reboot that’s been streaming on Disney+ in the UK since December.
