The novel Call Me By Your Name, written by André Aciman, was turned into the critically-acclaimed 2017 film starring Armie Hammer and Timotheé Chalamet. It followed the romantic relationship between seventeen-year-old Elio and twenty-four-year-old Oliver.
Fans of the book, as well as the film’s stars, have been clamoring for a sequel. Early in December, Aciman answered their prayers and tweeted that he was writing a new story.
I would actually love a sequel to Call Me by Your Name. In fact I am writing one.

Now, the title and publication date has been revealed.
Titled Find Me, it fill follow Elio, Oliver, and Elio’s father Samuel as they all go on separate personal journeys that will test all of their individual relationships several years after the events of the first novel.
First reported by Vulture, Aciman commented on what the sequel means to him.
“The world of ‘Call Me by Your Name’ never left me. Though I created the characters and was the author of their lives, what I never expected was that they’d end up teaching me things about intimacy and about love that I didn’t quite think I knew until I’d put them down on paper. The film made me realize that I wanted to be back with them and watch them over the years — which is why I wrote ‘Find Me’.”
Find Me will be released on October 29th.
