Fans of “The Devil Wears Prada” may have reason to rejoice as speculation swirls around a possible sequel to the beloved 2006 film that captured hearts and box offices worldwide. According to reports from Puck News, Aline Brosh McKenna, the original writer of the film, is said to be developing a sequel, marking the return of the iconic character Miranda Priestly to the big screen after nearly two decades.

The sequel’s development is further bolstered by Wendy Finerman, the producer of the first film, who is set to develop and produce the follow-up. Discussions are reportedly underway with David Frankel, the director of the original, to potentially helm the new project, although no formal agreements have been announced regarding casting.

“The Devil Wears Prada,” based on Lauren Weisberger’s novel of the same name, starred Anne Hathaway as Andy Sachs, a recent college graduate thrust into the glamorous yet demanding world of fashion journalism as the assistant to the formidable Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep. The film also featured Emily Blunt as Emily Charlton, Stanley Tucci as Nigel, and Adrian Grenier.

Upon its release in June 2006, the film grossed an impressive $326 million worldwide and garnered Streep her fourteenth Oscar nomination for her portrayal of the indomitable Miranda Priestly.

Puck News hints at a potential plotline for the sequel focusing on Miranda Priestly navigating the challenges of modern publishing and the financial woes of Runway magazine, where she remains at the helm. Meanwhile, Emily Charlton is speculated to have ascended to an executive position within one of Runway’s luxury brand advertisers.

Despite the buzz surrounding the sequel, both Hathaway and Blunt have previously expressed reservations about revisiting their roles. In recent interviews, Hathaway, now 41, cautioned fans not to “hold out too much hope” for a sequel, suggesting that continuing the story may not be likely. Similarly, Blunt, also 41, has emphasized the value of preserving the original film’s legacy, noting that some stories are best left untouched.

In earlier discussions, Blunt expressed openness to reprising her role if all the original cast members were on board, while Hathaway floated the idea of a reboot with new actors taking on the beloved characters.


The potential sequel’s development comes under the Disney umbrella, following its acquisition of 20th Century Fox, the original studio behind “The Devil Wears Prada.” As anticipation builds among fans and industry watchers alike, details about the sequel’s timeline and production schedule remain eagerly awaited.

As the journey towards a possible continuation of “The Devil Wears Prada” unfolds, enthusiasts of the fashion-centric comedy-drama will undoubtedly keep a close eye on developments, hoping for a worthy sequel to one of cinema’s most beloved stories of ambition, fashion, and unforgettable characters.
