‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Sequel Reportedly in the Works After 18 Years, Screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna in Talks to Return


A sequel to the 2006 film “The Devil Wears Prada” is reportedly in the works at Disney, according to Puck. Aline Brosh McKenna, who wrote the screenplay for the Oscar-nominated film, is in talks to return to write the sequel.

Puck reports that the sequel film will follow Miranda Priestly (played in the 2006 film by Meryl Streep) as she navigates a new chapter in her career, with the fall of print media and the rise of digital. The sequel would see Streep’s Priestly face off against Emily Blunt‘s character, also named Emily, who became a powerful executive for a luxury group with advertising money Priestly needs in the years since the 2006 film’s story ended.

The film, based on the 2003 novel of the same name by Lauren Weisberger, follows Andrea “Andy” Sachs (Anne Hathaway) as she tries to survive one year working as Priestly’s assistant at Runway magazine, a fictional high-fashion outlet. The film also stars Stanley Tucci as Nigel, Adrien Grenier as Andy’s boyfriend Nate and Simon Baker as Christian Thompson.

Following its release, “The Devils Wears Prada” went on to be a box office success. The film also earned two Academy Award nominations, including a Best Actress in a Leading Role Oscar nomination for Streep and Best Achievement in Costume Design Oscar nod for Patricia Field.

The stars of the film have seemingly teased a potential sequel in the recent past. During the 2024 Screen Actors Guild Awards, Hathaway, Blunt and Streep had a “Devil Wears Prada” reunion while presenting the award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.

During their reunion, the Oscar-nominated and Oscar-winning actresses recited iconic lines from the film as Streep opened the envelope to announce the winner for the category. Hathaway even made a subtle nod to her “Devil Wears Prada” character, wearing a cerulean gown from Atelier Versace’s spring 2015 collection.
