So, naturally, when Entertainment Weeklypublished an oral history of The Devil Wears Prada earlier this week, the question of a television spin-off was posed.
The answer is complicated.
"[The studio] didn't ask for [a sequel]," Director David Frankel said, "We had a meeting where we said, 'What could we do if there was a sequel?' Maybe it was stupid. We felt like, 'No, this story has been told.'"
"Magazines and publishing have changed so much. This is a period of time where [Andy] took a physical book to someone's house every day so she could leaf through it. Maybe they still do that, but I doubt it," said screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna. "It had its moment!"
But just when all hope was lost, Weisberger responded to the spin-off inquiry with some promising news.
"There have been a lot of conversations about it," she said. "I wouldn't say it's out of the realm of possibility."
That's enough for me! There could be a television spin-off someday, and I need it now.
