Oh, I'm sorry, did you think your crush on Gerard Butler died long ago? Well, prepare to feel a wave of nostalgia for both his abs and his 2007 film P.S. I Love You, because the story in that beloved romantic drama is going to be continuing (well, in book form, that is).

On March 11, author Cecelia Ahern announced that she's written the sequel to the international bestseller upon which P.S. I Love You is based. Even better? The book will be available later this year! "I have BIG NEWS!" the Irish writer shared with fans 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."

Get ready for Postscript, guys!

Ahern released the first novel back in 2004, which follows happy married couple Holly and Gerry (played in the film by Hilary Swank and Butler, respectively). Sadly, Gerry learns he has a brain tumor and dies, leaving Holly to pick up the pieces of their shattered life. Fortunately her grief is healed (somewhat) when she discovers that Gerry secretly left behind a present, of sorts to help her cope with his loss: 10 letters that each contain heartfelt messages to her, all signed the same way ("P.S. I love you").

Although Ahern has yet to specify details about what Postscript will be about, clearly Holly and Gerry will both feature. If I were you, I'd start stocking up on tissues now.
