It’s official: Flight of the Conchords’ new HBO special coming in May

on January 11, 2018, 3:55pm

Last week, Jemaine Clement let it slip that Flight of the Conchords would be returning to HBO for a new hour-long special. Now, it’s been made official by HBO president Casey Bloys.

To be taped before a live sold-out audience during their upcoming UK tour, the special will feature the Conchords performing their classics as well as new original songs. A premiere date is scheduled for May.

The Flight of the Conchords first became a household name in the US thanks to their fictional HBO series, which ran for two seasons from 2007-2008. In 2012, Clement and Bret McKenzie reunited for a 10-date run of shows in their native New Zealand. They’ve continued to tour around the world in the years since and have also teased the possibility of a feature-length movie.

Aside from Flight of the Conchords, Clement is working on a U.S. television adaptation of his breakout New Zealand horror comedy What We Do In the Shadows, as well as a theatrical sequel.
