Despite reports that HBO would be reviving its beloved comedy series Flight of the Conchords for four more episodes, one of the show's stars Jemaine Clement put that rumor to rest.
Yesterday (Sept. 2), the comedian/actor/musician tweeted that he won't be venturing into the distant future with Bret McKenzie for more Flight of the Conchords, though he did indicate the two are working on a new project for the premium cable network.
"Before this rumour gets out of hand - we are not working on a 4 ep Conchords show for hbo...," Clement wrote. "I am working on another idea with them though, hence the mix-up."
Clement is referring to a recent interview with The Guardian, promoting his new movie What We Do in the Shadows, where he announced that he is working on a new comedy for HBO, which media outlets then confused for a FOTC reunion.
But, fans of the New Zealand guitar parody artists need not worry too much... there may be a Flight of the Conchords movie in the works.
"We talk about a movie every so often," Clement said to The Guardian. "Sometimes it feels like we lost a lot of impetus over the last couple of years. But Bret, James [Bobin, lead director] and me, we all want to do a musical. It would be good to do something all together ... I miss playing Flight of the Conchords gigs."
Flight of the Conchords ran for two critically acclaimed and fan favorite seasons from 2007 to 2009.
