A PS I Love You sequel has been confirmed!

The Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler blockbuster hit screens way back in 2007 and since then had made it onto must-watch lists among the likes of the Notebook, Romeo + Juliet, Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing and Titanic.

And when writer Cecilia Ahern penned a second novel, fans were desperate for another film.

And now it seems like we’re going to get a second instalment of the iconic watch.

The film sequel will be adapted from the second book release in the series, Postscript and according to Variety ahs been picked up by Alcon Entertainment.

What we know about the PS I Love You sequel

According to a publisher's synopsis of the Postscript novel, which was posted on Entertainment Weekly last year, the story starts seven years after Gerard Butler’s character Gerry's death.

It went on to explain that Hilary Swank’s character, Holly, 'is approached by a group calling themselves the PS, I Love You Club'.

Members of the club are 'inspired by hearing about her late husband Gerry’s letters' and want her assistance 'with their own parting messages for their loved ones to discover after they’re gone’.

‘The club wants Holly to help them,’ continues the synopsis. ‘Holly is sure of one thing – no way is she being dragged back to the grief she has left behind.

‘It’s taken seven years to reinvent herself, and she’s ready to move on with her life. But Holly comes to realize that when you love someone, there’s always one more thing to say’.

Will Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler return for the PS I Love You sequel?

Writer Cecilia Ahern spoke on Irish Radio last autumn saying that Hilary Swank would be keen to return for the second movie.

“There will be a Postscript movie,” she told host Ryan Tubridy, however this was before it had been picked up by a network. “One of the first people to email me when she heard the news was Hilary Swank.

“She was so excited, she wanted to read the book and she said ‘I would love to support you in any way, shape or form’. Then she read the book and she said ‘I want to make this movie’”.

So let’s hope we see the iconic couple make their return!

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
