Flight of the Conchords duo to reunite for new HBO comedy


It's business time. Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, aka Kiwi comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, are working together again on a new four-part comedy for HBO. 

The as-yet-untitled show will be the first time the pair have been collaborated since their eponymous 2007 HBO music comedy, which saw them play a two-man band in New York trying to crack the music industry. 

Clement appeared to confirm the show in an interview with the Guardian, in which he said: "It was supposed to be this year but then we decided to put [his new film] What We Do in the Shadows out ourselves."

Details of the new show are scarce (and not officially confirmed by HBO), and rumours that it is a third series of Flight of the Conchords have since been rubbished by Clement on Twitter.  

He did say in the Guardian interview, though, that a Flight of the Conchords reunion – primarily a film or more gigs –would be something he'd be up for in the future. 

“We talk about a movie every so often,” he said. “Sometimes it feels like we lost a lot of impetus over the last couple of years but we all want to do a musical. It would be good to do something all together, I miss playing Flight of the Conchords gigs.”

Flight of the Conchords last reunited for a successful New Zealand tour in 2012, which sold out in just ten minutes.
