Flight Of The Conchords Canceled

2009-12-11 by Prophet178 | 55 Comments
HBO's music-infused comedy Flight Of The Conchords has been canceled after two seasons. The duo will presumably continue as a musical comedy act.

Bret and Jemaine wrote: "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."

The show was pretty lame. It was just a bunch of lame, awkward jokes that led up to the song, which for the most part was "meh" anyway.

Well shit, when they say they aren't going to do another season months before this, it pretty much means the same thing in the end.

A while back I saw an article on the fotc site saying that they were going to do a movie and not a new season.

I can't find it on there tho...

There were rumors from both camps. HBO was said to be pressing them for a third season and how they were on board, while the Conchords were keeping quite, pretty much suggesting that it wouldn't happen.

I watched the first 2 episodes of the second season and never watched it again. Just didn't really grab me like the first season did I guess.

Why is it that any time Dane Cook is brought up in a conversation on the internet, Louis CK invariably follows right after?

If they truly are all about the humor, they will write a song about being canceled.

They never had enough material to do a series. They should probably find another outlet for their comedic talents.

id like to go ahead and say, that this show was not canceled... they only planned on making 2 seasons.

and they have talked about the possibility of making a movie.

Murray: I'm so mad I feel like swearing!
Bret: Aw Murray you wouldn't swear at us would you?
Murray: G...Go fuck yourself Bret!
