The reboot will work off the same premise as the original How I Met Your Mother series, following a close-knit group of friends as they navigate their love lives in New York.
The 'sequel' will be led by Sophie, who is telling her son the tale of how she met his father. The good news? Sophie is played by millennial icon and absolute treasure Hilary Duff.
The even better news is that the Hulu Original series will be available to stream on Australian screens soon. We've been waiting to find out when we could watch the show Down Under, especially considering the first two episodes have already dropped in the US.
And we can FINALLY confirm that the series will be available to stream on Disney Plus. If you haven’t signed up yet, you’re going to want to click here.
Sure to fill the Younger-shaped hole in your heart, Hilary will be looking fabulous and fashionable in NYC as she brings her signature bubbly personality to the role. In the words of Lizzie McGuire, this is what dreams are made of.
Not only that, but Kim Cattrall will be taking on the role of future Sophie – narrating the series like the late Bob Saget did for the original 'future Ted.'
Some fans were disappointed when Kim declined to return for the TV revival of SATC, but after six seasons and two movies we think she's earned a break from Samantha Jones if she wants one. And at least this way, she'll still be in one NYC-themed reboot.
"So thrilled to be joining the cast," Kim wrote on Instagram after the announcement was made.
"Ahhhh we welcome you with the most excitement," commented Hilary.
With Hilary and Kim in the role of Sophie, the rest of the cast is rounded out with familiar faces in the soon-to-be-loved roles of Sophie’s friends.
There’s Jesse played by Chris Lowell (Promising Young Woman, Private Practice), Valentina played by Francia Raisa (Grown-Ish, Bring It On: All or Nothing), Charlie played by Tom Ainsley (Boots On The Ground), Ellen played by Tien Tran (Candyman), and Sid played by Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi, God Friended Me).
Will anyone hold a candle to Lily Aldrin and Marshall Eriksen? We'll soon see, when the show drops on Aussie screens.
