A very satisfying end, to me. :) At least now that I've had time to think about it.

That's one question I was not asking them the other night. They've probably had to field it hundreds of times already.

So, I will speculate that we'll always have our beloved 2 seasons and that will be it. Bret and Jemaine will go on to make tons of other things that we'll enjoy, without a doubt. :D

And, as long as Jemaine was speaking the truth the other night, they'll be doing another US tour :pray:

Yeah, I wouldn't have asked them about it either. If anything (and I'm sure some of you here might have killed me for this) I would have asked them not to do a third season. Leave the audience wanting more. And their music is versatile enough that it's worked as a live performance, a radio show, and a TV show. Why confine them to the one format?

Found this wee nugget in an NZ TV guide article about Rhys Darby (I've posted the whole thing in the Rhys section) but thought this bit was worth highlighting...

So! A third series has actually been commissioned eh?! Woo! Just up to J&B to accept now! :D

Thanks for this :)

I'd heard a rumour a while back about this third season. TBH I think its the networks way of trying to put pressure on them to accept. Making it known and getting (certain) fans hopes up also. Putting the guys on the spot.

I think its a but crappy of HBO to go about it this way. Maybe its the normal way, I've no idea. But I kind of think that asking the guys if they want to consider a third season or asking them if they want to make another is more polite. And then if they do, commission a third.

I await to see what they do with interest. I personally think with thier own families now and having spent the last 3 years working full time on Conchords they will walk away. Or wait a couple of years (and see if HBO are interested then). These early years with babies and toddlers are precious, I can see them choosing a life over the show.

Also they may be throughly sick of anything and everything Conchords wise :lol:

Sherry, this kind of thing isn't usual, but it isn't uncommon.
I see it happening when a big star's contract is up and they are in a good place.
And the Conchords are in a great place.

But at the very least, I hope they spend some time having money fights and playing with their babies for a few years. And then come back when they feel re-energized. :drinkers:

Didn't HBO talk about the possibility of a third season as a late 2010-2011 thing? I think they definitely want a break now, but the question is how long.

I personally don't really care if they do a third season or not. If they do, I agree with the others who said they want the guys to have a good long break to do other things and rejuvenate themselves creatively and emotionally. I want them to do it on their own terms and I have no doubt that they will, as they seem to do everything else.

What I DO care about is, I want them to do another tour with new material. In fact I want them to do this BEFORE the third season, if there is one. That way it'll all be new and fresh. And I want them to kick off the tour in Lexington Kentucky, and I want them to send me back stage passes. That's not too much to ask, is it? ;)

well, not only have we Aussies been neglected, we've also been abused.
and, quite frankly, I personally won't be able to forgive them until they tour here and give out copious hugs :hrmpf:

Ditto that. The UK (well London to be specific) needs love too.
Yeah I can't see them working on a third season right away if they do decide to go along with it. For now, all I want is for them to tour the UK within the next year so I can see them live :pray:. Now that's not too much to ask ;)

Yeah! :D

come on Arj, say it with me: "Don't worry about the way they smell, or their bad attitudes, or the fact that they mock your accents and your sheep-loving ways, it's just all part of their unique charm! Give 'em some love guys, what else have they got to live for?!" :thumb:


... yeah, I reckon playing the pity card is our best bet...

I agree and I don't think so Mock. Kentucky is totally drivable for me :wink:

edit: NOT that it's all about me.. :blush:
