Jenkins Reid has had quite a successful year!
“The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo” won’t be the first of Jenkins Reid’s novels to be adapted for streaming.
After multiple titles in Jenkins Reid’s catalog began gaining traction on social media over the last year, one of those oft-discussed books over social media’s hypothetical watercooler caught the attention of celebrity book enthusiast Reese Witherspoon and was soon adapted into a miniseries by Amazon Prime and Witherspoon’s production company, Hello Sunshine, according to Oprah Daily.
“Daisy Jones & The Six” began filming last year and while there has not been an officially confirmed release date for the series’ premiere, internet sleuths are speculating the release date may happen in 2022.
The idea to adapt “The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo” into a form of media has been in development for awhile!
The novel almost received the same treatment as “Daisy Jones & The Six” as an adaptation for the small screen.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo’ “Was previously in development for a series on Freeform with ‘The L Word’s’ Ilene Chaiken and Jennifer Beals exec producing.”
Exact details about the project are still a bit hush-hush, but the internet is abuzz with excitement. Who wouldn’t be curious to see how the passionate friendship between titular character Evelyn Hugo and her true soulmate Celia St. James unfolds from page to screen?

Everyone’s favorite passionate songwriter with a penchant for creating novel-like masterpieces in her lyrics, Taylor Swift, recently revealed her literary bookworm status when she announced she had written a song for the upcoming big screen adaptation for “Where The Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens.
Not long after Swift’s announcement, Twitter lit up with ‘what if’ theories contemplating what it would be like if Swift tapped into her feels and wrote a song for “The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo” as well!
Fans also shared their fantasies for Swift to star as Celia St. James, and made multiple cases that Swift’s discography would be a great choice for the novel’s signature pairing.
