“[Author] Lauren [Weisberger] eventually wrote another book, following up 15 years later,” he continued. “We came to the same conclusion, that just following the characters wouldn’t be the same.”

“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.
