Fight or Flight of the Conchords

Is the international hit TV series returning to our screens – or are these rumours too good to be true?

 
 

Rumours about the hit series from New Zealand possibly returning to our screens spread like wildfire this week, when reports surfaced on social media platforms stating that American cable network HBO was planning to produce four new episodes of Flight of the Conchords this year.

But the online excitement turned out to be short-lived after Jemaine Clement – one of the two Kiwi creators of the comedy series – took to Twitter to announce the speculations were false.

The rumours had apparently arisen hot on the heels of an announcement saying that Clement was indeed working with HBO in a collaborative effort but on an unrelated project.

The self-styled “fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo” from New Zealand had kept us in stitches for two seasons from 2007 to 2009 with their wicked sense of humour and unique brand of entertainment.
