"In the near future, Sophie (Hilary 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 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," reads the log line.

The news was first revealed in April, and the show was inspired by the original series which starred Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor and Jason Segal.
