The band liked the way the second season ended in March this year and won't spoil the Emmy-nominated show with a third season.
Flight of the Conchords decide that it is time to go back to their roots in 2010. The New Zealand band who play fictionalized version of themselves on "Flight of the Conchords" would not return for a third season in order to concentrate on their music tour.
"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 third season," the pair wrote at their website. "We're very proud of the two seasons we made, and we like the way the show ended."
Thanking fans for watching it for two seasons, the band said, "While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jemaine [Clement] will continue to exist."
Despite ending the show, Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie said in an interview with NME that there could be a movie version. "I don't know if it's officially dead, but I think it'd be more likely that we'd do a film or something like that," he said.
Now that the HBO show is not in production, the band are free to visit countries for a tour. "We toured North America earlier this year, and we are planning to tour Europe in the New Year, yeah," McKenzie added.
