Whether Anne Hathaway, who played Andy Sachs in the original film, will return is still up in the air. Aline Brosh McKenna, the screenwriter of the first film, is reportedly in discussions to write the sequel's script. The original The Devil Wears Prada was adapted from Lauren Weisberger's bestselling novel.

Anne Hathaway has previously expressed doubts about the necessity of a sequel. In an interview with E!, she stated, "I don’t think a continuation of that story is likely to happen. What made that movie special was the teamwork and the love everyone put into it."

Hathaway has shared her vision of Andy Sachs' future, imagining her living in Paris and working as a staff writer for a prestigious French women's magazine. She envisions Andy as fluent in French and possibly a parent, leading a fabulous life.

In 2022, Hathaway reiterated her skepticism about a sequel during an appearance on The View. She remarked, "I don’t know if there can be [a sequel]… The original movie belonged to a different era. Everything has gone digital now, and that film was centered around the production of a physical magazine, which is a very different context."

Despite Hathaway's reservations, fans are eagerly anticipating the new dynamics and fresh conflicts that the sequel promises to deliver.
