It’s been five long years since Flight of the Conchords last aired on HBO, but the New Zealand folk duo are apparently not quite done singing to audiences about heavy topics such as robot Armageddons and racist dragons.
While both Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement have both gone on to quite successful non-Conchord careers, fans have long hoped that the duo might eventually reunite onscreen. That idea has apparently been on their radar as well, and Clement confirmed in an interview with The Guardian that they will be back together on HBO soon:
HBO have commissioned a new, four-episode comedy show, he reveals. ‘It was supposed to be this year but then we decided to put What We Do in the Shadows out ourselves.’
While the jury’s out on whether this is truly a good idea (Pro: new Conchords episodes. Con: was anyone really clamoring for new Conchords episodes?), at the very least these guys have had plenty of time to come up with some new material. And as long as Super Fan Mel (Kristen Schaal) is back, that’s good enough.
