"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" has an official release date... and it's one year from today. Paramount Pictures has revealed that the movie will hit theaters on Dec. 20, 2013.

Slap on a dab of Sex Panther and get ready to croon some "Afternoon Delight" because, as long as the world doesn't end tomorrow, we're going to be seeing a lot more of San Diego's Channel 4 news team. Director Adam McKay had previously revealed that the forthcoming "Anchorman" sequel will take place during the rise of the 24-hour news cycle, and that the shift will throw Ron Burgundy and his fellow newscasters off guard. Remember when he once though "diversity" was an "old wooden ship"?

"All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you're talking about diversity and the Action News team, that's always fun to deal with," McKay said earlier this year. "We know these guys never deal well with change. We're going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they're not going to handle it well."

"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" brings back together Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate. Kristen Wiig also could land a part as Carell's character's love interest.
