The Devil Wears Prada 2 Is Happening & Meryl's Reportedly Back

Miranda Priestly is coming back for another walkthrough. Nearly two decades after the icy fashion editor first stomped the runway, she’s making a long-awaited return in The Devil Wears Prada 2. On July 8, Variety confirmed Disney is developing a sequel of the beloved couture comedy, and the early reports of what the new movie will be about are pretty eyebrow-raising.

There have been rumors about a potential followup to The Devil Wears Prada ever since the movie premiered in 2006, but nothing truly concrete until now. The movie’s screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna is already in talks to pen the new script, and two main cast members are already reportedly on board to reprise their roles. And that’ll be important, given the reported story of the sequel.

Early reports claim the movie will center on Miranda Priestly struggling to keep her magazine afloat, and forced to turn to her former assistant Emily Charlton — now a powerful luxury group executive — to try to get her advertising funding. Hm, it sounds like a new devil is in power this time around.

The sequel is still in very early stages, but here’s what we know so far.

4 Main Characters Will Likely Be Back

As the plot summary suggests, both Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt are expected to reprise their roles as cold-blooded fashionistas Miranda and Emily.

Shortly after the initial sequel announcement, another casting report was published via Entertainment Weekly. In addition to Streep and Blunt, Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci are also reportedly in talks to reprise their roles as beleaguered assistant Andy Sachs and tart-tongued stylist Nigel Kipling for the upcoming movie.

No actors have been officially confirmed yet, but so far, it sounds pretty promising that the reunion fans have been waiting for may come to fruition.

Though the sequel announcement is promising, it’s still in very early stages. Hopefully, more casting and production updates will arrive later in 2024 or at the start of 2025, but fans probably shouldn’t expect to actually see the film for maybe a couple years.
