    It's hard to believe it's been 8 years since we were first introduced to our favorite scotch sipping news personality, Ron Burgundy. But nearly a decade after "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" first hit the theaters, we'll finally get a sequel, "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," set for release in October 2013.

    The Anchorman follow up will be directed by Adam McKay and will be produced by Judd Apatow under Apatow Productions.

    As of now, the script is not yet completed, and no cast members beyond the principals have been set. Which mean, yes, Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell will all be returning. But according to The Wrap, Kristen Wiig may also join the cast of the Anchorman sequel as Steve Carrell's love interest.

    Wiig is best known for her hilarious characters on Saturday Night Live, but most recently shot to comedy superstardom after the release of her critically acclaimed film, "Bridesmaids." She's been busy recently promoting "Imogene" and working on films, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," and "Hateship Friendship," but I'm hoping negotiations work out for the "Anchorman" sequel since two former SNL cast mates are better than one! Will Ferrell + Kristen Wiig = ridiculously amazing. Am I right?
