'P.S. I Love You' is getting a sequel and fans are over the moon
Back in 2004, Cecelia Ahern wrote her very first novel. Despite being just 21 years old, the novel was a huge success. For 19 weeks it sat on the top spot as the number one bestselling book in her home country of Ireland, with this same bestselling status spreading to charts in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States - just some of the forty or so countries it sold in.
P.S. I Love You follows the character of Holly, who struggles to overcome her grief after her husband Gerry dies from a brain tumour. She later finds that he has left behind ten letters for her to open after his death, each containing messages of love and support to help her start the next stage of her life without him.
Soon enough, this success led to a movie deal, with Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler starring in the romantic drama, building its own major fanbase after overperforming at the box office.

The book propelled Ahern to fame and fortune, and now she has 15 more novels to her name. Her books have been sold over 25 million times across the world, and have been translated into 30 languages. Now, it looks like she's finally following up on her original book and we can check in on Holly's story in a new story titled 'Postscript'.
"I have BIG NEWS!" Ahern wrote on Twitter. "I've written the sequel to PS I LOVE YOU - titled POSTSCRIPT. POSTSCRIPT will be published September 19th in the UK & Ireland. I hope you’ll welcome back Holly... & Gerry...& that reading it will be as emotional for you as it was for me".
As you can expect, the avid fanbase of both the books and the movie turned up to show their appreciation and eager anticipation for the next entry in the series.
Some people simply couldn't contain their excitement over the news!
So, with the book looking to land in Autumn this year, that means that there will be a movie on the way too, surely?
Should they go the full franchise route and give it a more elaborate and silly name? What should they call it? P.S. I Still Love You? P.S. I Love You Too? P.S. I Love You: Tokyo Drift? Either way, it's all set to make a lot of money.
