‘Blackadder’ return is ‘on the cards’, says star

Posted Filed under

Sir Tony Robinson has revealed that Blackadder might be coming back for a brand new season.

The classic sitcom ran on BBC One for four seasons between 1985 and 1989, followed by a number of one-off specials.

Robinson, who played Baldrick, told The Sun: “I do think a new series of Blackadder is on the cards. I have spoken to virtually all the cast about this now.”

The 69-year-old Time Team presenter joked: “The only problem is Hugh [Laurie]’s fee. He’s a huge star now – or so he’d like to think.”

Laurie was reportedly paid £250,000 per episode of House at its peak. The US medical drama ran from 2004 to 2012.

Robinson added: “Expectations for a new series will be high because people not only remember the original; they remember who they were when it was on. It’s a big danger.”
