Fact > The End Is Nigh For Flight Of The Conchords

September 2, 2008

Sigh.. and I’ve [still] never seen even one episode of our men doing their thing 😦 

Kiwi comedy duo Flight of the Conchords will be only making one more season of their award-winning sitcom. Fans are sure to be disappointed, but Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie have told British music magazine Q two seasons will almost certainly be the end.

The first series of the quirky show has aired in the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand, but the twosome said they were struggling with “a difficult second series” during an interview for Q.

“We’ve got a lot of half-songs,” said Clement. “We’ve got an album’s worth of beginnings of songs.”

McKenzie revealed this series, made up of 10 new episodes, would likely be the last. “The second series seems to me like it would be a good end to the show. I feel like another 10… that will be enough.” 

If the sitcom finishes after this run, it will find itself in good company alongside Ricky Gervais‘ award-winning comedies, The Office and Extras, which ended leaving fans wanting more after two seasons.

Clement and McKenzie have been pursuing other avenues, including auditioning for movies. McKenzie told Q he had applied for a part in a film adaptation of the Justice League of America…” – NZ Herald
