Although there have been rumors for years about a sequel to Anchorman, Will Ferrell (well, Ron Burgundy) appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show this evening to officially announce a sequel to the cult comedy.
“I have an announcement,” Ferrell said in character on the show. “I want to announce this to everyone here in the Americas, to our friends in Spain, Turkey and the U.K., including England. As of 09:00 mountain time, Paramount Pictures and myself, Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy, have come to terms on a sequel to Anchorman. There will be a sequel to Anchorman. “
While not many details are available, you’re hearing the announcement straight from a very trusted news source in Burgundy. Check back later for more details on the film. ??Watch the announcement below thanks to Team Coco.
We’re willing to guess that this is what Steve Carell was talking about when he suggested we tune in to Conan tonight.
