was quite possibly the most quoted movie across college campuses around the globe when it released way back in 2004. The movie was an absolute hit and, along with Old School
, propelled Will Ferrell
to mega-stardom among younger moviegoers.
The adventures of Ron Burgundy continued in 2013 with the release of Anchorman 2
, and while not quite capturing the magic of the original, the movie was still hilarious in its own right. However, will we ever see an Anchorman
3? According to Will Ferrell
, we shouldn’t rule it out.
Speaking to CinemaBlend, and definitely not reading from a teleprompter, Mr. Burgundy himself had this to say:
“Never say never. At the same time, that’s what’s really fun about those characters — it could be 10 years from now and we can still play those guys and just be older… and even dumber. So that’s the beauty of that. There are no imminent plans to return to that as of yet, because, I can’t speak for [director] Adam [McKay], but for myself, we still have a lot of other original ideas that we’d like to do.”

Is there a place for Ron Burgundy in 2027? Given the fact that the narrative has always been bonkers, it’s safe to say that, yes, our future society will likely accept Ron Burgundy (and Baxter of course) with open arms. Until then.
