What Will Happen in How I Met Your Father Season 2?

The second season of How I Met Your Father is sure to pick up from the seriously dramatic ending of Season 1.

After a spell of self-sabotage, Sophie realized she wanted to give things with Jesse (Chris Lowell) a go. However, by the time she could reach him after some advice from How I Met Your Mother alum Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders), he had rekindled his romance with ex-girlfriend, Meredith (Leighton Meester).

Charlie (Tom Ainsley) and Val (Francia Raisa) ended their relationship after Charlie shared he did not want to have children and Sid (Suraj Sharma) and Hannah (Ashley Reyes) tied the knot in a spur-of-the-moment wedding.

In Season 2, HIMYF will follow the fallout from Season 1 as well as introduce a whole load more romance.

Speaking to Variety, co-showrunner Aptaker teased: "I mean, there's a lot left on the table right there. So we definitely are going to revisit the immediate events. We literally cut to black, so I think we're certainly going to see what happens the rest of that night, whether we do it linearly or jump around a little bit before we get there, I think people are gonna have to wait and see."

Fellow showrunner Berger also teased audiences might meet the father in Season 2, adding: "Of course, there is a chance. You know, we obviously chose our language very carefully in our first episode. Future Sophie says, 'That's the night I met your father.'

"So we know that we could potentially return to that night. Obviously, that's something we want to do very sparingly, should we choose to do it, because we don't want fans to revolt against us and say, 'Hey, you're just going back to that night 100 times!' But there is always a chance."

How I Met Your Father is streaming on Hulu now.
