Finally, nearly 10 years after Lauren Weisberger penned her bestselling novel, The Devil Wears Prada, she’s giving it a sequel. Weisberger is in the process of writing Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, Entertainment Weekly is reporting, to be published by Simon & Schuster in April 2013.
The new book catches up with former Runway assistant-to-the-editrix Andy eight years after she’s parted ways with her demanding boss Miranda Priestly. Though Andy is now the editor of a bridal mag, she’s still “haunted” by ‘Ice Queen’ Priestly– famously inspired by Vogue’s EIC, to whom Weisberger was once a real-life assistant. Sounds like Anna Wintour’s mind-controlling abilities last longer than even we could’ve imagined.
There’s no film sequel in the works just yet but we’d give anything to see Anne, Meryl, Emily Blunt, and Stanley Tucci (who was phenom as Priestly’s jilted colleague) back at it in their TDWP roles. Who knows, maybe it would even inspire another The September Issue-esque rebuttal from our old friend Anna.
