Ron Burgundy is returning with a new podcast


Will Ferrell is returning to the world of Anchorman and continuing The Legend of Ron Burgundy with a new podcast.

According to Deadline, the podcast is set to launch on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network and will be available in early 2019. It will be co-produced by Funny or Die and iHeartRadio. The show has been given a two-season 12-episode order.

I loved the first Anchorman movie, but thought the second was a great big mess. However, I could see the character of Ron Burgundy working well on a podcast.

“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,” said Ron Burgundy.

The iHeartPodcast Network President, Conal Byrne, added “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.”

You can see Ron talking about it in the Twitter exchange below.
