Thank Folk! Flight Of The Conchords May Continue On TV.

HBO has stated it wants to make a third series of Flight of the Conchords, despite the reservations of creators Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie.

The news comes amid speculation that the creative trio are talking about a possible film.

Clement and McKenzie admitted that writing new material for the second series had proved stressful after using up a majority of their back catalogue in the first series.

Bret McKenzie recently said that the 2nd series finale seemed like a good end to the show.

HBO president of west coast operations Michael Lombardo told Broadcastnow: "I think not. Admittedly, they were exhausted when they finished their latest series.

"They are serious musicians and it is a daunting task to write so many new songs, especially since their used their entire repertoire in season one.

"But they are taking a break before going on a live tour and I fully expect them to be back in late 2010 or early 2011."

Series two of the show will air on BBC Four this spring. The duo are also expected to announce UK and hopefully Ireland tour dates for late 2009/ early 2010.
