Flight of the Conchords: 2nd Season will be final season! August 30, 2008

Noooo! Please say this isn’t so!

I just read that our favorite comedic duo, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement will only make one more season of their hit HBO show, Flight of the Conchords. The guys confess they were struggling with “a difficult second series” during an interview for Q.

“We’ve got a lot of half-songs,” said Clement. “We’ve got an album’s worth of beginnings of songs.”

McKenzie revealed this series, made up of 10 new episodes, would likely be the last. “The second series seems to me like it would be a good end to the show. I feel like another 10… that will be enough.”

Ricky Gervais did the same thing with “The Office” and “Extra’s” leaving the fans wanting more.

The guys are also pursuing other avenues, including auditioning for movies.

McKenzie told Q he had applied for a part in a film adaptation of the Justice League of America.

Flight of the Conchords, has brought the guys international acclaim, along with winning a Grammy award for best comedy album.

Please excuse me while I go jump off a bridge…………

  1. I feel your pain. I’ve been looking forward to a new FOTC season for what feels like forever, and then I started reading news like this, and became pretty depressed.

    I think we have to be philosophical however. Would we want them to continue for 3 more years and see the show quality decline? It must take a tremendous amount of work and creativity to write good songs and integrate them with show plots. They used up a lot of material in their first season, and I believe that was material that they had written and collected over the course of years. Doing it again year after year and writing a season’s worth of songs in each ~6 month offseason may just be unrealistic.

    So, if they’re really struggling to get together good material, I’d almost rather see them go out on a high note than to see them try to keep it going past its sell-by date.

    I agree with you Sonic. I don’t have a clue how long it took them to come up with all the material for Season 1. But to expect a fast turnaround for a whole other season is probably unreasonable. The type of creativity that they generate can’t be done with deadlines.

    I can’t wait for Season 2 and I will hope that like Ricky Gervais in the past, we might get special Christmas episode so that we don’t have to lose them completely.

    Aghh, this is the worst news I’ve heard this week. Have to agree that at least it’ll end on a high note. Hopefully they’ll do another special, and a few more albums down the road.

    I have to agree… it is sad-but all the GOOD episodes will get lost among a sea of bad ones. Then the messages hidden/not so hidden in there will also be lost to all the new viewers.

    It’s still really sad though! I love this show, the characters are brilliant.
