Quoted in The Telegraph, actor Sir Tony Robinson who portrayed Baldrick stated that he thinks "a new series of Blackadder is on the cards. I have spoken to virtually all the cast about this now", but that it all hinged on whether the station can still afford Hugh Laurie. "He's a huge star now - or so he'd like to think."
