Blackadder V?

The Guardian reports:

A new series of the 1980s BBC comedy is on the cards, star Sir Tony Robinson has said – as long as they can afford Hugh Laurie’s wages.

Robinson, 69, who played Baldrick in all four series of the sitcom, joked that they might struggle to pay Laurie, who went on to become a major star in the US with the medical dramaHouse.

“I do think a new series of Blackadder is on the cards,” the comedian and TV presenter told the Sun. “I have spoken to virtually all the cast about this now. The only problem is Hugh’s fee. He’s a huge star now – or so he’d like to think.”

A 5th series of Blackadder would make me very happy.
