Director Adam McKay has ruled out plans to bring “Anchorman” back for another sequel.

Both the 2004 original and long-awaited 2013 follow-up were hits at the box office, bringing in a combined total of nearly $260 million worldwide, but McKay is adamant there will be no more films starring Will Ferrell’s news broadcaster character Ron Burgundy.

He says tells Empire magazine, “It’s done. 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.

“That’s the last sequel we’re gonna do. There’s nothing more fun to me than new characters and a new world.. No ‘Anchorman 3.'”

When asked if he might change his mind again, after previously dismissing the idea of a second movie, he replies, “I’m going to say definitely no. I’ll actually say it in this case!”
