Move over Fifty Shades. Fashion fiction still rules and here's why.

Author Lauren Weisberger is bringing the devil back in Revenge Wears Prada, the sequel to her bestselling book-turned-film The Devil Wears Prada, EW reported Thursday. The follow-up to the original novel will be published by Simon & Schuster in April 2013.

The plot picks up eight years after Andrea (Andy) Sachs abandoned her post at Runway Magazine, leaving her hell-hath-no-fury boss Miranda Priestly in the Parisian dust. The older Andy is seemingly living the dream in New York: She's engaged and helming the hottest wedding publication in town.

Given that the magazine world is quite the microcosm, Andy naturally encounters her former boss once again. Although the circumstances haven't been divulged yet by Weisberger, we're quite certain hilarity- and horror- will ensue.

Sachs' fictional stories at Runway are supposedly based on Weisberger's actual experiences as former assistant to Vogue's Anna Wintour. Priestly's character is said to channel that of real-life editor Anna Wintour, who to this day remains prickly over the character's origins.

We're guessing she's not all-too-thrilled about this news. Will Weisberger redeem Priestly's character in Revenge Wears Prada? We're guessing nada. Can't wait to read it!
