Flight of the Conchords, the Grammy-winning musical comedy duo from New Zealand, announced today that they would not be continuing their HBO series for a third season.
Bret, Jemaine and James (co-creator/director) said ‚Äúwe‚Äôve noticed the
less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk
about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing
that we won‚Äôt be returning for a 3rd season. We‚Äôre very proud of the
two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We‚Äôd like to
thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched
it. While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the
real Bret and Jemaine will continue to exist.
The quirky musical sitcom had a cult following and also gave some juicy supporting roles to comedians Kristen Schaal, Arj Barker, Eugene Mirman, Todd Barry and Demetri Martin, among many others. It will be missed.
