Flight of the Conchords set for small screen return

Flight of the Conchords Reunion HBO Special

Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie had already scheduled a Flight of the Conchords stage tour of the United Kingdom for March and April.

The native New Zealanders originally made their HBO debut in 2005 on the half-hour comedy special One-Night Stand.

The musical comedians Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, New Zealand's premiere folk-duo, will return to HBO this May with an hour-long Flight of the Conchords comedy special. The show only lasted for two seasons before it ended in 2009.


The upcoming special will apparently feature a selection of old Flight of the Conchords favourites, as well as new material. The series was praised by critics and beloved by fans, turning the cult favorites into an worldwide sensation.

Adapted from a successful radio show, Flight of the Conchords arrived on HBO in 2007. McKenzie and Clement took home the Grammy for their album "The Distant Future" in 2008. Since then, McKenzie won an Oscar for writing songs for 2011's The Muppets, with Clement now co-starring on FX's Legion.
