‘Flight of the Conchords’ Season Two in the Works

After much speculation and fear that the HBO show Flight of the Conchords would be a one-season wonder, the network has made it clear that will not be the case. Whew–and woo-hoo!

HBO announced on Monday that production is officially underway on the formerly up-in-the-air second season, which will debut early next year with 10 episodes.

The kooky cult favorite stars New Zealanders (don’t call them Australian!) Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie as the eponymous, perpetually struggling band.

The timing of the announcement couldn’t have been better: Conchords is up for four Primetime Emmy Awards later this month, including nods for Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Writing.
