Hopes Dashed For Blackadder Fans

Subscribe to Richard Curtis alerts

Director Richard Curtis has disappointed fans of cult British TV show Blackadder, by insisting the comedy's stars are too successful in their own right to ever want to make another series.

Curtis always hoped to reunite the cast after airing final season BLACKADDER GOES FORTH in 1989, but to no avail.

He says, "When we gave up, there was a thought that one day, when we were old and angry with the young world, we might bring Blackadder back to rail against the modern world.

"But I fear it is unlikely. Hugh Laurie is now a major American TV star, Stephen Fry is a poet, ROWAN (ATKINSON)'s a racing driver and Tony Robinson is an archaeologist. But never say never."
