No, HBO still isn’t going to commission a new Flight of the Conchords miniseries anytime soon — if at all. Yet this doesn’t prevent the New Zealand folk duo of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie from gracing America’s shores once more. In fact, Clement teased a possible tour when asked about the Conchords‘ status at the Sundance Film Festival:
Flight of the Conchords‘ Jemaine Clement says he and Bret McKenzie “are planning on touring later on in the year in the States. It isn’t very solid yet, but we’ve been talking about it.”
As in years past, Clement says the Conchords will play new material at the shows. “I really don’t like the studio part of music,” he says. “I more enjoy playing live and letting others take care of the recording.” (Via Billboard)
Anything new from the Conchords is smashing, but don’t forget who started the whole HBO mess in the first place: Clement himself. His misquote sent the internet into a frenzy last September, but it was all for something else. So no to internet frenzies, yes to a Conchords tour later this year, and yes to stealing really nice cushions.
