The progenitor of the How-I-Met-Your-Whomever-verse, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas's How I Met Your Mother, was a rom-com-style sitcom starring Doogie Howser, that dude from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, the redhead from American Pie, that lady now known from Marvel movies, and Josh Radnor (and spoiler alert -- the first wife from Wolf of Wall Street is the titular mom). Point is, this star-studded cast put its heartstring-pulling talents to work and gave us nine seasons (208 episodes) of primetime, mid-to-late twenties coming-of-age tomfoolery. It was great. Then it ended. Now, seventeen years after the debut of HIMYM, the next chapter of this particular multiverse has arrived: Hulu's How I Met Your Father.
