The author of The Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger, has confirmed she is writing a sequel to the best-selling 2003 book.
‘Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns’, continues with former magazine assistant Andy Sachs eight years after the first book. The story now sees Andy (a bridal magazine editor) crossing paths with old boss, Miranda Priestly with a few other favorites!
HarperFiction publishing director Lynne Drew said:
“I’m thrilled to be once more encountering the world of glossy mags, Miranda Priestly and our favourite heroine, with a novel set to be one of the big summer reads of 2013.”
The Devil Wears Prada was a hit when it was first released and it was later adapted into a Hollywood film in 2006 starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep who was Oscar-nominated for her role as the overbearing Miranda – widely considered as a fictionalised version of Anna Wintour, Vogue’s editor-in-chief, where Weisberger was once a former assistant.

The book will be published by HarperCollins in the UK next April.
