Who isn’t super excited for Anchorman 2? The follow-up to the cult classic that helped solidify the movie careers of Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, and Judd Apatow is filming as we speak.

A new Anchorman 2 set photo has emerged, via our friends at Movie Fanatic, showing Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, sitting next to a kid. Could it be his son?

While we don’t know a whole lot about the plot of the sequel, we do know that Burgundy is dealing with the rise of cable news, and that director Adam McKay has dropped hints about a “custody battle.”

It makes sense, then, that the boy pictured above is his son, and it likely means that Ron and Veronica are no longer together. Sad.

Joining returning stars Ferrell, Carell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd, and Christina Applegate are newcomers Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, Greg Kinnear, and James Marsden.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues is slated for a December 20 release date.
