12 January 2018

Are you ready for the return of Flight of the Conchords?

No word yet on whether Murray and Mel will be "present" for the new HBO special, though.

HBO announced that Flight of the Conchords will make a return in the form of a one-hour special set to air in May. It ran for two seasons.

A Flight of the Conchords stage tour is running through the United Kingdom in the coming months and Clement indicated that won't be the only thing on his and McKenzie's plate this year. The series was praised by critics and beloved by fans, turning the cult favorites into an global sensation. Two years later, they debuted their original series Flight of the Conchords, in which they played fictional versions of themselves.

The show earned ten Emmy nominations, with Flight of the Conhcords' album "The Distant Future" winning Best Comedy Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards.

The Conchords have also enjoyed individual success.

HBO confirmed on Friday that the "something" was the comedy special, which will premiere on the network in May.

Hamish Hamilton is directing the special.
