Will HIMYM Characters Cameo In How I Met Your Father? Why It’s Possible
The question of whether How I Met Your Father will also include How I Met Your Mother appearances is now open. The original How You Met Your Mother lasted nine seasons and ran from 2005 to 2014. The framing device showed the show’s future in 2030, with Bob Saget as Ted Mosby. However, the main action was in the present day.
How You Met Your Father uses a similar framing device to the original series. Kim Cattrall portrays the older Sophie in 2050, while Hilary Duff portrays the younger version of Sophie in 2022 How You Met Your Father. The story follows Sophie on her journey to meet the father of her son and the hijinks she has with her friends along the way. The original and the spinoff show may share some similarities, however.
It seems likely that the spinoff could include How I Met Your Mother cast cameos. The How I Met Your Mother finale outlines some details about the lives of the original gang and what happened between 2014-2013. How You Met, Your Father takes place in the middle. This means that major characters such as How We Met Our Mother’s Ted or Robin may appear in moments consistent with their predetermined arcs. The new How You Met Your Father cast has already been linked to Syd and Hannah’s old gang, Lily and Marshall, making it possible for Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segal to make cameos. These two facts are so evident in the series that surprise How You Met Your Mothercameos on How We Met Your Father seem almost certain.
How I Met, Your Mother has a strong fanbase and many recurring jokes. This means that not all cameos would have to be from the original cast. How I Met, Your Father already makes vague references to old jokes and ideas from the original series. How I Met, Your Father can include How I Met Your Mother characters such as Ted’s ex-girlfriends or Barney’s brother. This is to flesh out the franchise’s world and continue developing those stories.
Overdoing it in the How You Met Your Mother cameos can also spell doom to How You Met Your Father. Although the potential to include Easter eggs and cameos from the previous show may appeal to some viewers, it could also alienate others. This would make it difficult for the shows to establish their style. It is important to be careful with who and what jokes are brought back as small cameos. How You Met, Your Mother may have better parts that should remain in the past. After How I Met Your Mother’s shortcut, How I Met Your Father may offer a glimpse into Tracy McConnell, the mother of HIMYM, Cristin Milioti.
