Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy Returns With a New Podcast

Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy returns with new podcast

It’s been nearly five years since Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hit theaters, but Anchorman 3 still isn’t on the horizon. However, Will Ferrell is bringing back his Anchorman character, Ron Burgundy, for a new podcast.

Via Deadline, iHeartRadio and Funny or Die are teaming up for The Ron Burgundy Podcast. There’s already a two season order from iHeartRadio, which will consist of 12 episodes each. Farrell made the announcement on twitter in the most Ron Burgundy way possible. In other words, he started a mock argument with CNN’s Don Lemon.

Ferrell also released an in-character reaction to the news. “Listen, I don’t know what a podcast is, but I currently have a lot of time on my hands and a lot to talk about. I am also broke. Therefore, I am very excited to do this podcast. It is literally saving my life.”

The iHeartPodcast Network President, Conal Byrne, gamely played along with the joke. “Ron quite literally forced us into making this podcast with him, first calling us more than one hundred times in a single day and then proceeding to actually show up at our doorstep and physically force himself into our studios. We do hope the podcast is well-received, but in the meantime, we hope by agreeing to do the announcement he will stay away.”

“By the way, if iHeartRadio says that I harassed them into making a podcast, it is a lie!! A boldface lie!!” responded Burgundy. “Did I call them one hundred times in one day? Yes! But that’s called persistence! I have filed suit against iHeartRadio for these salacious claims. I will be representing myself legally, since I currently do not have enough money to hire an attorney.”
