WATCH: The wacky new teaser for Anchorman 2
The sequel to 2004's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy reunites the Channel 4 News Team for another adventure

After nearly a decade, Ron Burgundy and his Channel 4 News Team are finally ready to hit the silver screen for a long-rumored sequel — and the new teaser for Anchorman: The Legend Continues doesn't exactly lower the already sky-high expectations. "Jesus, MacArthur, Jay-Z… The great ones always return," says the monologue that opens the brief teaser. "And when they do, one thing is for sure: Their hair will be perfect."

Though the sequel's overarching storyline is unknown, Anchorman: The Legend Continues reunites the news team from 2004's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. That's Will Ferrell (Ron Burgundy), Christina Applegate (Veronica Corningstone), Paul Rudd (Brian Fantana), and Steve Carell (Brick Tamland), alongside a slew of alleged celebrity cameos too fun to spoil. Can it live up to the cult appeal of the 2004 original? We'll find out when Anchorman: The Legend Continues hits theaters in December.
