Paramount will reveal a first look at the highly anticipated sequel, which is not expected to hit theaters until 2014.

It has been eight years since foul-mouthed, buffoonish newsman Ron Burgundy hit the big screen and now, he’ll appear alongside yet another foul-mouthed, buffoonish character.

The tweet also included the first new image of Ron Burgundy, who appears to have "stayed classy" all these years. Unsurprisingly, his signature moustache and burgundy blazer are still in tact. 

So far, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner have all signed on to reprise their roles for the sequel. An official release date has not yet been set.
