It's the book that won over millions of fans with its hilarious and uncomfortably realistic depiction of life for a personal assistant on a high-flying fashion magazine.

Now the adventures of Andrea Sachs on fictitious title Runway are set to continue, with confirmation that author Lauren Weisberger is working on a follow-up to her 2003 best-seller The Devil Wears Prada.

Weisberger's sequel is titled Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns and will pick up on the story of Andrea eight years after she walked out on her boss from hell, the fabled Ms Miranda Priestly.

According to Entertainment Weekly, who first reported the story, the book will see Andrea cross paths with Miranda once again as she makes a name for herself in the small world of publishing.

The sequel is still in the works but will reportedly feature Andrea working as an editor herself on a cool bridal magazine alongside her former Runway sidekick Emily. The story will follow her as she plans her wedding to Max, an eligible media tycoon, while struggling to come to terms with the ever-lingering presence of Miranda ("Ahn-dre-ah!!").

Weisberger used to work on Vogue as a personal assistant and the character of Miranda is widely acknowledged to be based on that of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Weisberger has never confirmed this although she admitted in 2008, "People always tell me I was 'so brave' to take on Vogue and the industry in the way I did, but I was more naive than I was brave. There were fresh wounds from working at Condé Nast and that's simply what I knew best when I took on a novel."

There's no word yet on a movie adaptation - but based on the success of the 2006 film starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, it's only a matter of time before production companies start putting in calls.

Simon & Schuster have snapped up rights for the book and it's set for publication in April 2013 - exactly 10 years on from the original book.
