When How I Met Your Father was first announced, people had their reservations, and why wouldn’t they? How I Met Your Father is a spin-off series of the popular tv show How I Met Your Mother, which raised an entire generation of love-stricken fans, hoping to find their one true love. So, undoubtedly, How I Met Your Father had a whole lot to live up to. It’s also important to note that sitcoms today just don’t have the same wow factor that sitcoms in the late 90s and early 2000s had. Nevertheless, How I Met Your Father tried its best and succeeded just enough to get renewed for another season.
For all those people who have been a fan of this show, the good news is that How I Met Your Father Season 2 is officially on its way, and a few details about the show have been uncovered, although a lot is still under wraps. We do recommend watching the first season to get a better idea about How I Met Your Father Season 2 but nevertheless, stick around as we tell you everything we know about the upcoming season so far, from its plot to its cast to its release date and much more:
What is the Plot of How I Met Your Father Season 2?
The general plot of How I Met Your Father is very similar to How I Met Your Mother, only this time around, instead of Ted telling his kids how he met their mother, we have Sophie telling her son about how she met his father. The difference is that Ted’s love story took place in a time that wasn’t bound to their phones and dating apps, so undoubtedly, How I Met Your Father is more relatable for today’s generation, and one of the reasons it’s gotten this popular. Circling back to the upcoming season, we have an official synopsis for How I Met Your Father Season 2 by Hulu:
“Sophie and her close group of friends take on changes to their careers and love lives as they stumble into their 30s. Figuring out life through trial and error isn’t easy, but there’s nothing you can’t get through with friendship and plenty of laughs.”
The 30s have begun, which is about to bring about a whole lot of changes in Sophie’s life, as well as everyone else in the friendship group. We have a feeling that How I Met Your Father Season 2 will pick up right after the end of season one, which was definitely chaotic because a lot of things happened in the final episodes, which raises a lot of interesting questions that hopefully will be answered in How I Met Your Father Season 2.
For starters, Sid is married now, and that’s exciting, but will it be a long-distance marriage? Because from what we saw, a long-distance relationship was difficult for him to maintain. Next, we have Charlie and Valentina who broke up in the season finale, but can those two really stay broken up? Also, is it just us, or are Charlie and Valentina together a weird mix that totals to a Barney Stinson? Maybe it’s just us. Things are looking up for Ellen, with a date and a new job, maybe the city is finally being kind to her. And last but not the least, Sophie and Jesse. The premature ‘I love you’ definitely gave us flashbacks to Ted and Robin, and in the finale, Robin was actually around to advise Sophie, even though it didn’t work out. Jesse seems to have gotten back with his ex, and Ian is back! So, there’s a lot in store for How I Met Your Father Season 2 because we all need answers!
