Late this week, Bret and Jemaine of New Zealand comedy rock duo Flight of the Conchords announced they would not return for a third season of their popular HBO series. There's no mention yet of the band's future as a touring and recording entity (they did recently release a new LP), but one would assume the end of the TV show (which began a decade after they formed the band) should not impact their ability to keep playing music together. The full statement from their official Web site:
Bret, Jemaine and James (co-creator/director) said “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."
