And finally comes… Kim. After the farewell, without too many regrets, a Sex and the City, than in the revival of HBO Max And Just Like That will do without Samantha Jones, for Kim Cattrall the doors of another project open: that of the spin-off of How I Met Your Mother titled How I Met Your Father, which will arrive on Hulu in 2022 and in Italy, probably, on Disney +. According to initial information, Cattrall will not appear in the episodes, but will always be present as the narrator of the story: he will lend his voice, in fact, to the adult version of the character of Sophie, the protagonist played by Hilary Duff who will tell his son how he met the man who became his father.
The series, created by co-showrunners of This is Us and the co-creators of Love, Victor Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, will be set in the near future, when Sophie decides to tell how her life crossed that of her son’s father. At that point, the tape will rewind to 2021, when Sophie and her friends – Jesse (Chris Lowell), Valentina (Francia Raisa), Charlie (Tom Ainsley), Ellen (Tien Tran) e Sid (Suraj Sharma) – they were desperately looking for someone to fall in love with through dating apps and all the technological possibilities that they have How I Met Your Mother did not yet have.
As in the original series, here too we will see the protagonist struggling with different love stories that the voice of Kim Cattrall will tell in great detail throughout the course of the narrative arc. To enrich the cast of the spin-off, already mentioned in 2016, they will also play Josh Peck as Drew, the handsome vice principal of Jesse’s elementary school; and Ashley Reyes as Hannah, a Los Angeles-based surgeon trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with Sid, who is in New York. And the wait is great.
