Lizzie McGuire Is the Latest Surprise HOW I MET YOUR FATHER Cameo

This is what dreams are made of. How I Met Your Father has been delighting fans with surprise cameos since it premiered. Mostly, of course, the HIMYF guests have come from the world of How I Met Your Mother. But now, the very special Hilary Duff Television Universe has come full circle. In the most recent How I Met Your Father episode, a flashback to Sophie Tompkins’ past revealed none other than Lizzie McGuire herself.

There was a lot of hope for a Lizzie McGuire sequel series a little while ago, but it never panned out. So this is the next best thing, we guess. In a way, Sophie and Lizzie are fairly similar, and now they even share an origin. The clip from the season two premiere of Lizzie McGuire, which now also lives in How I Met Your Father, permanently ties the two characters together.

It’s not the typical MO for shows, but when Disney owns most things, anything is possible. Although the clip does not confirm HIMYF is a sequel to Lizzie McGuire, it certainly invites us to imagine. Hey now, hey now, we’ll take it.
