With "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' arriving in theaters on a wave of hype, endless advertising, countless personal appearances by Ron Burgundy and much more, Paramount is likely satisfied that the long awaited sequel bested its predecessor at the box office, though it wasn't a knockout punch. "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" notched $95 million worldwide, and the sequel (to date), $169 million. Respectable, but even "Elf" and "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby" did better at the domestic box office. All this to say: Ron Burgundy is hanging up his jacket.

With "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' arriving in theaters on a wave of hype, endless advertising, countless personal appearances by Ron Burgundy and much more, Paramount is likely satisfied that the long awaited sequel bested its predecessor at the box office, though it wasn't a knockout punch. "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" notched $95 million worldwide, and the sequel (to date), $169 million. Respectable, but even "Elf" and "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby" did better at the domestic box office. All this to say: Ron Burgundy is hanging up his jacket.

Speaking with Empire, director Adam McKay revealed that the adventures of the Channel 4 news team are over. “It’s done,” he said. “I think that’s it. It was great to do it and it was so fun to work with those guys again, but I think that’s it for Ron Burgundy.”

“No, that’s the last sequel we’re gonna do,” he added. “There’s nothing more fun to me than new characters and a new world. And now we’re releasing this alt version, we’re totally satisfied. No 'Anchorman 3.' ” We presume that also means no "Step Brothers 2," which leaves us a little heartbroken.

But we can't complain too much. After all, McKay and Ferrell are leaving fans with more Ron Burgundy than they can handle with three different versions of the movie — including the R-rated, alternate joke filled cut "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Continued" hitting cinemas this Friday for one week— hitting home video in April. And really, at this point, how much more Ron do you need?
