“Anchorman 2” announced last night on “Conan”

Will Ferrell fans went crazy last night when he appeared on TBS’ Conan as a very familiar character, Ron Burgundy!

Ferrell made a surprise appearance on Conan last night, appearing in full Ron Burgundy costume – burgundy leisure suit, striped tie, hair, mustache, and voice – announcing that he (Burgundy) and Paramount Pictures have come to an agreement on a sequel to the hilarious film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

This isn’t the first that we’ve heard of an Anchorman sequel. Back in 2010, Anchorman director Adam McKay told MTV News that a second Anchorman movie was in the works, but nothing was official.

Most of the original cast is slated to return for Anchorman 2 (working title), including Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and Fred Willard.

Anchorman 2 will start production at the end of the year, with an expected 2013 release date.

If you missed Conan last night, here’s a clip of the Ferrell/Burgundy announcement.
