Jermaine Clement

From the horse's mouth: no more Conchords

Flight of the ConchordsWe wondered before if Flight of the Conchords would make a third season, and now we know. It won't. The final episode of the HBO series' second season had them returning to New Zealand to be shepherds and that's where they're staying.

Jermaine Clements and Bret McKenzie (co-stars and co-writers of the series as well as the only two members of the group) wrote on their website that while the characters Jermaine and Bret are done, the real ones will still be around.

At first I thought this was a tactic for getting more money from the producers, but after some thought there is likely some truth to their statements about the series being hard to produce. The first season was much easier because they already had the library of songs to use. The second season was probably so much harder that it put them off a third season.

There is always the possibility of a movie. Keep buying those DVD sets.

Flight of the ConchordsSome more sad TV news that thankfully doesn't involve Kirstie Alley: Flight of the Conchords might not be returning to television.

Jermaine Clement, one of the show's stars, told the Reuters News Service that their hilarious show might not return to television for a third season because the amount of work that it requires.

This isn't his or anyone else's final decision on the matter. Clement and his costar Bret McKenzie will discuss the possibility of a third season with directors and producers and should come to a decision by the end of the month. So all of you fans with Flight of the Conchords prayer alert hidden in your closet might want to a light an extra candle before you go to bed tonight.

Flight of the Conchords PILOTHad I known that television shows were just going to premiere all their pilots online well before their air dates, I wouldn't have had to move all the way to Los Angeles for the insider privilege. But, we, the internet savvy, are being rewarded for our pop culture geekitude with such treats as HBO's online premiere of Flight of the Conchords over a month before its broadcast on June 17th at 10:30PM. You can watch New Zealand's "fourth most popular folk parody duo" in their stateside series debut on the show's MySpace site or, starting Monday, at HBO.com.

Flight of the Conchords Update - VIDEO

Flight of the Conchords New YorkRumor has it that filming begins in March for music-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords' 12-part HBO series and that they've got a second album in the works to be released this year. New Zealand's Flight of the Conchords (Jermaine Clement and Brett McKenzie) made waves on U.S. shores with their 2005 HBO One Night Stand.

I wish I had something more clever to say about them, but they're just freaking adorable, funny, refreshingly self-effacing and one of the best things going in comedy today. (And, I'm not just saying that because they're every hipster girl's dream come to true.) Don't believe me. Check them out for yourselves. Most of their One Night Stand is available via YouTube and elsewhere online. You can keep abreast of their goings-on at Conchords' fansite What the Folk!
