Francia Raisa is heading back to the small screen in January…
Hulu’s How I Met Your Mother spinoff How I Met Your Father, featuring the 33-year-old Mexican & Honduran American actress, will premiere on January 18, 2022.
In How I Met Your Father, written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, in the near future, Sophie (Duff) is telling her son the story of how she met his father: a story that catapults us back to the year 2021 where Sophie and her close-knit group of friends – Jesse (Lowell), Valentina (Raisa), Charlie (Ainsley), Ellen (Tran) and Sid (Sharma) — are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.
Francia Raisa (grown-ish) will play Sophie’s roommate/bestie Valentina. She is an aspiring stylist. She is impulsive and adventurous and Sophie relies on Valentina’s ability to cheer her up when she gets down. In the pilot, Valentina has just returned from London Fashion Week with the gorgeous, British Charlie.
Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall also forms part of the cast in the role of Duff’s Sophie in the future, who is telling her son the story of how she met his father, much like Josh Radnor (and Bob Saget’s) Ted Mosby did in the original series.
Other recurring cast includes Daniel Augustin, Ashley Reyes, and Josh Peck.
