No more 'business time' for 'Flight of the Conchords"



Let us bow our heads in silence. We have sad news to confirm.

"Flight of the Conchords" creators Jemaine Clement, Bret McKenzie and James Bobin announced on their official website today that the HBO comedy will not get a third season.

It's true: Bret and Jemaine will not be returning from New Zealand, destined to a life of sheepherding. But what about Murray? What's his destiny? We will never know. All we know is this: "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."
