Are you sad to see Bret and Jemaine go so soon?
HBO’s surprise hit “Flight of the Conchords” won’t be back for a third season, Variety is reporting. The story of two awkward New Zealand musicians trying to make it in the big city is officially over after just 22 episodes — and stars Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement took to their official Web site to extend their personal thanks to fans of the short-lived series.
“We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended,” the duo wrote. “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.”
But while this is definitely sad news for fans of the quirky cult hit, it’s not entirely surprising. In Sept. 2008, Bret and Jemaine told British magazine Q that the second season would likely mark the show’s end. “The second series seems to me like it would be a good end to the show,” Bret told the mag. “That will be enough.”
Two seasons may have been enough for Bret and Jemaine, but was it enough for the fans?
