Sir Tony Robinson - Tony Robinson: 'Blackadder Cast Won't Reunite Like Monty Python'

British actor Sir Tony Robinson is adamant the Blackadder cast will not be following the stars of Monty Python by staging a reunion because they "don't need the money".

The veteran comedy troupe, including John Cleese, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam, have got back together for a series of stage shows in London next summer (14), and Python member Eric Idle recently admitted they agreed to the reunion because of cash issues.

The comeback raised hopes about the revival of another beloved British comedy, Blackadder, but castmember Robinson is adamant it won't happen.

He tells the London Evening Standard, "We don’t need the money as much as they do... We don't have to pay for that amount of alimony or rehab so I'm not sure we have the same motivation. Good luck to them. It's high risk, but if it comes off it will be great. To my generation they were the gods."

Previous reports emerged over the summer suggesting Blackadder star Rowan Atkinson was in talks to bring the show back for a fifth season.

The Tv comedy, which also starred Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, ended in 1989.
