How about a Blackadder return written by people who aren’t Ben Elton? Surely everyone would be up for that. I feel a bit sad that Ben Elton is denying Tony Robinson and the rest of the old crew in this manner. I’d probably write a whole new series out of spite towards Elton.
Presumably a joke, but of anything I’ve ever read in here, this post is the one I disagree with the most.

How about a new series, set in the 90s? Blackadder is now a comic actor, making a series with an annoying alternative comedian, a posh bloke dreaming of directing romantic comedies, and a bunch of Footlights types.

I don’t know what’s going on with this article but it’s brilliant and I’m going to presume the quotes are accurate and he’s had a brain aneurysm.

You're going to think the world has become a new, scary place that you don't understand anymore if I explain that article to you.

I think Ben Elton's kids are about student age, now.  Perhaps one of them could take up the Blackadder torch.

Ben Elton confirms that Blackadder will never ever return. GOOD. As he says, it's best left alone.
