Let the mystery over who the father is start.

If you loved How I Met Your Mother, you may want to know how to watch How I Met Your Father online for free to see who the dad is in rom-com mystery.

How I Met Your Father is a spinoff of How I Met Your Mother, a CBS sitcom that aired for nine seasons and 208 episodes from September 2005 to March 2014. The series is told in two timelines: the future, which sees main character Ted Mosby in 2030 recount to his kids, Luke and Penny, about the events that led him to meet their mother; and the present, which sees Ted and his group of friends in New York City—Marshall Eriksen, Robin Scherbatsky, Barney Stinson and Lily Aldrin—experience those events in real time.

After the finale of How I Met Your Mother, news broke that a spinoff titled How I Met Your Dad was in the works with Greta Gerwig set to star in the lead role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gerwig was cast to play the main character of Sally, “a female Peter Pan” who realizes that she has nothing in common with her husband of less than a year. Meg Ryan was cast to voice future Sally, while Drew Tarver, Nicholas D’Agosto, Andrew Santino and Tiya Sircar were cast as her friends. In May 2014, it was reported that CBS decided to not to pick up How I Met Your Dad, with the creators confirming in in July 2014 that the spinoff was officially dead after attempts to shop it to other networks like Netflix, FOX and NBC.

In December 2016, news broke that another spinoff, How I Met Your Father, was also in the works with HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas serving as executive producers. The series was officially picked up by Hulu with Hilary Duff cast as the lead role of Sophie in April 2021. The show premiered in January 2022. Like the original series, How I Met Your Father uses the same framing to tell the story of how main character Sophie met her children’s father, as Sophie and her friends—Jesse, Valentina, Sid, Charlie and Ellen—live those events in the past. Unlike How I Met Your Mother, which saw Ted meet the mother of his children, Tracy McConnell, in the show, creator Isaac Aptaker confirmed to TV Line in January 2022 that Sophie has already met the father of her future kids, who is likely one of the men already in her friend group. 

“[How I Met Your Mother] was about a journey for Ted to meet this woman. This show is more of a journey to figure out where all of these men fit into [Sophie’s] life,” he said. “It really becomes more of a coming-of-age story for her as a woman. So much of finding your person has to do with timing and who you are at any given moment, and Sophie really has a lot of growing to do as a person before she is ready to wind up with the father.”

Creator Elizabeth Berger added, “One of the things that’s really cool about this device is that there will be these little, unexpected moments and exchanges with our guys, where all of a sudden you’ve been watching one guy, and then suddenly there’s a conversation and someone else comes into focus in a really surprising, exciting way.”
