Jermaine Clement is returning to HBO but he's not getting the New Zealand folk band back together.
The Flight of the Conchords
star and the show's director Taika Waititi are working on a four-episode comedy project for the premium cable network (no word yet if Bret McKenzie is involved), but when talking to The Guardian
, many confused Clement's quotes for meaning they were reviving the show.
"We talk about a movie every so often," he said when asked about the cult-classic characters. “Sometimes it feels like we lost a lot of impetus over the last couple of years but we all want to do a musical. It would be good to do something altogether, I miss playing Flight of the Conchords gigs.”
Clement, 40, later tweeted: "Before this rumor gets out of hand - we are not working on a 4 ep Conchords show for HBO..."
He added: "I am working on another idea with them though, hence the mix-up."
When can we expect this new comedy show? "It was supposed to be this year but then we decided to put What We Do in the Shadows (a vampire comedy) out ourselves," Clement revealed.
Would you like to see HBO order more episodes of Flight of the Conchords? The show hasn't been on the air since 2007.
