Hilary Duff announced that How I Met Your Father had been renewed for a second season through a post that was shared to her Instagram account on Tuesday morning.


The 34-year-old performer was seen posing for a photo with several of her castmates, such as Christopher Lowell and Francia Raisa, while they worked on the program in the snap.


She also wrote a short message in the post's caption that partially read: 'You'll be seeing more great chapters in this love story because #HIMYF has been renewed for Season 2!'  


How I Met Your Father serves as a spinoff from the wildly popular sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which ran from 2005 until 2014.



The program, which starred performers such as Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel and was narrated by the late Bob Saget, was centered on a group of friends navigating their lives in New York City.


A pilot entitled How I Met Your Dad, which was co-written by and starred Greta Gerwig, was produced shortly after the original show ended, although it was ultimately not picked up by any network.


It was later reported that Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who co-created the new series, would be working on a new version of the spinoff.


The original show's creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, gave their blessings to the project and signed on to work as executive producers. 


Several new writers were brought on to work on the new version of the program, although production appeared to stall in 2017.


However, it was announced that Hulu had revived the show and gave the project a series order last year.


It was also made known to the public that Duff would both star in the show and serve as one of its producers.   


Much of the program's cast, which also includes performers such as Suraj Sharma, and Tien Tran, was brought together that year.


It was announced that Kim Cattrall would serve as the show's narrator and that she would portray an older version of Duff's character, Sophie, that November.


Production on the show began in August of last year and continued for an extended period of time.


How I Met Your Father's pilot was released last month and new episodes are making their respective debuts on a weekly basis.


The show has since received mixed reviews from audiences and currently holds a 35% rating with critics on Rotten Tomatoes. 


The news about the show's renewal was made known to the public on Tuesday, and Hulu Originals' Head of Scripted Content, Jordan Helman, issued a statement via Deadline where he praised the work of Aptaker and Berger.


'Isaac and Elizabeth's inspired vision for How I Met Your Father has proven to be true appointment viewing that fans cannot get enough of week to week,' he said.


He also applauded the work of the series' lead actress and expressed his enthusiasm for the forthcoming run of episodes. 


'The lives of these characters, as portrayed by the immensely talented cast led by Hilary Duff, are just starting to unfold and we're thrilled to bring more of this group's journey to our viewers with a supersized second season,' he stated.


How I Met Your Father's second season currently does not have a set premiere date.
