Willed into reality by fans' bottomless love for 2004's "Anchorman," Will Ferrell confirmed in March that there would be a sequel to the comedy.
Speculation was rampant as to how -- or who -- would be returning for the long-awaited installment. Initially, Ferrell was (of course) set to reprise his role as news anchor Ron Burgundy, as well as Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, but the rest of the gang -- David Koechner, Christina Applegate or Fred Willard -- were not confirmed to join. However, the first teaser shows the fearsome foursome -- Koechner included -- back in action.
Up until now, details on the story have been scant, with director/writer Adam McKay telling Salon, "Keep in mind we're still writing the story, but I'll say one phrase for you: custody battle... I'll give you that. I'll give you one other one: bowling for dollars."
Yes, they're really back. Take a look at the teaser trailer above and bask in the afternoon delight.
"Anchorman 2" hits theaters sometime in 2013.
