When the season one finale of Hulu’s How I Met Your Father premiered on the platform in March 2022, the last thing fans expected to see was actress Cobie Smulders, 40, suddenly appear and make a surprise cameo in the spinoff series. In case you didn’t know, the star played Robin Scherbatsky in the original sitcom, How I Met Your Mother. And now, viewers are in for another big surprise.
On Instagram, HIMYF star Hilary Duff shared a sneak peek photo from the mid-season two finale, which shows her character, Sophie, having the ultimate starring contest with the one and only Barney Stinson! If you don't already know, Neil Patrick Harris portrayed the character for a total of nine seasons in the first comedy series.
The Younger alum wrote in the caption, “He's baaaack! @nph returns as Barney Stinson next week for the mid-season finale of #HIMYF.”
