'Flight Of The Conchords' TV Series Officially Finished (Updated)

It's a sad, sad day for Flicks News!

One of the best, if not the best TV series of this decade, 'Flight Of The Conchords' has been grounded by its creators Bret McKenzie, Jemaine Clements and James Bobin.

In a statement published on the Conchords official website, the trio wrote:
Bret, Jemaine and James (co-creator/director) said “we’ve noticed the less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing that we won’t be returning for a 3rd season. We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched it. While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jemaine will continue to exist.
However, in an interview published in NME this week, Bret McKenzie confirmed that Flight Of The Conchords will most likely continue as a possible film outing.

"I don't know if it's officially dead, but I think it'd be more likely that we'd do a film or something like that,".

He also confirmed that the Flight Of The Conchords live show is set to tour Europe next year.

"We toured North America earlier this year, and we are planning to tour Europe in the New Year, yeah."

Elsewhere in the interview, McKenzie revealed that he is writing a film and is set to act in a forthcoming film called 'Dukes And Broncos'.
