In a recent interview, Rowan has confirmed that there will be no new Blackadder; something I very much suspected would be the case.
On this Rowan said “I made the mistake in Britain to say that it might be a good idea. Now everyone thinks it is going to happen but it is not,” he admitted. “Everyone is much too busy with their own other stuff. And besides that I always believed that ‘Blackadder’ was a comedy consensus of a group of creative people in a certain period of their lives.
“If you put these people in the same room again 20 years later that consensus has changed.”
So there you have it.
