Jemaine Clement Says Flight of the Concords May Not Have a Third Season

The Conchords May Not Fly Again — Are You Bummed?

The Flight of the Conchords released a new album just a few weeks ago, but we may be seeing less of the goofy New Zealanders in the future. In a recent interview, Jemaine Clement hinted there might not be a third season of their HBO series. He said, "It very likely might not. . . We've got to write the series, but we've also got to write the songs, and just dividing your time into those two writing tasks is really tricky."

I still love watching (and listening to!) the Conchords first season, though I admittedly was less enthused about the second set of episodes. Still, I would be sad to see them go. What about you — are you bummed about this news?

I love this show more than I can say - so I'm bummed that we won't get to see much from them again. BUT I applaud their ability to take stock of their situation and call it quits on their own terms. The trend in the US is to keep going, even when the show has dried up creatively (here's looking at you Two and a Half Men).

I remember them saying something similar to this before the second season even premiered. It would be really sad if they didn't make another season.

I voted yes b/c I loved the first season. The second season wasn't very good. A big difference between the two is that they had the songs already before the 1st season and made a show around them. Second season they made songs based on the episodes and it just didn't work out as well. I don't think they could ever be as good as the first season for this reason. I love FOTC but would rather no 3rd season than another disappointment. It should be noted that the second season was still better than most shows on TV.

It would make me sad if there wasn't another season, but I totally understand not wanting to do it. I can't imagine all the work they've put into them!. If they don't do another season, it'll be fun to see what these talented guys do next!

I completely understand how much work putting on a FOTC season must take, particularly since they pretty much have to write the whole thing themselves. They might be better off with a Conchords movie series. If they only have to fill two hours at a time, it will be easier to write and have higher quality.

I love FOTC and I too had heard something similar awhile back. I will be so bummed if there's not another season!

I remember hearing something similar back before they filmed the second season too. I totally get that it is a ton of work to come up w/ the songs along w/ an accompanying script, but I love this show and think it is hysterical.
