Conchords second season may be last

All good things must come to an end, but this soon!?!? In an interview with British music mag Q, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement--aka The Flight of the Conchords--dished some seriously horrible news.

After starring in and creating one of the most buzzworthy premium-cable comedies in recent memory, the music duo say the upcoming sophomore season of Flight of the Conchords will likely be its last, reports The New Zealand Herald.

The two Kiwis broke the sound barrier after season one of HBO's Flight of the Conchords debuted, after years of performing their musically inspired stand-up routine around the globe. The show, about two New Zealand musicians trying to make it big in New York City, features the pair jumping into song in elaborate musical numbers peppered throughout an indie sitcom.

The success translated to three Emmy nominations and heaps of critical praise, but a repeat performance is proving difficult.

"We've got a lot of half-songs," Clement told Q. "We've got an album's worth of beginnings of songs."

Season two was pushed back to 2009 way back in April, with the pair confessing that writing an album and a television program was a daunting task.

McKenzie and Clement are eager to pursue other work, including film roles. In fact, McKenzie said he auditioned for a role in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of The Justice League of America (Wonder Twin, perhaps?).

What say you, Conchord fans? Sad to see them go, or happy they aren't waiting to go stale before bailing? While we're at it--which Conchord gets you buzzin'? Bret or Jemaine?
