Conchords ground their flights

Sad news - Flight Of The Conchords have decided not to make a third (or fourth, or fifth, or sixth) series of their HBO musicomedy series.

A statement posted on the band's official website 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."

In a way, we're happy. The second series wasn't as quotable, or as likely to reduce us to fits of tittery giggles, as the first. But even when they weren't firing on all cylinders, Flight Of The Conchords managed to rescue the comedy song genre from the likes of Katy "stating the obvious" Brand, Chris "tedious wordplay" Moyles and Peter "these aren't jokes, they're stories I heard down the pub" Kay. Long may their influence last.
