“It wasn’t over. It still isn’t over," Ryan Gosling's Noah tells Rachel McAdams' Allie before their kiss in the rain in "The Notebook." And clearly, it's still not over.

Apparently, the tears we've been crying since the movie's 2004 release aren't enough. Now, The CW is developing a small screen adaptation of the film, which was based on the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name. According to Entertainment Weekly, the official logline follows Noah and Allie at the beginning of their relationship amid the "racial politics, economic inequities, and social mores of post-World War II of the late 1940s in North Carolina."

So wait, does that mean Noah won't enlist in the war, thus prompting James Marsden's Lon to come and ruin everything sweep Allie off her feet? What about the Alzheimer's plot device? Will old Noah tell old Allie he'll "be seeing" her so we can plow through a box of tissues? CW President Mark Pedowitz revealed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Tuesday that "Notebook" fans shouldn't count on seeing the aged Allie and Noah. “I don’t believe we’re going to see the older couple -- what they become," he said, before adding that things can change since the project is in early development.
