If you've never watched The Wire before, this news will mean very little to you, but more importantly: why haven't you?!
Proclaimed as the most intelligently written drama series of recent time - making NYPD Blues look like Teletubbies by comparison - The Wire is five seasons of interweaving drama based around the Baltimore Police, drug dealers, gangsters, politicians and many more segments of society that are all too often coated in a sugary glaze for the screen.
The beauty of the series was the ability to portray realistic dialogue and situations from a neutral viewpoint. Never stopping to pass judgement makes watching The Wire an individual experience like no other. Even Barack Obama's favourite character turns out to be Omar Little - a homosexual, murdering drug dealer, hell-bent on wreaking revenge by any means necessary.
So what's this great comeback? Is there a spin-off? Have HBO ordered another series?
Unfortunately, no is the answer to all of the above - but Will Ferrell's website 'Funny Or Die' decided to rope a few of the original actors into this little skit (including Omar, Bubbles, Keema, D'Angelo Barksdale) to great effect. Even Stringer Bell's replacement appears to bear an uncanny resemblance.
