    Whew! I was afraid it wouldn't come back 'cause last time I saw these forums they were WAY less than 1/2 the current size.

    You can't keep good-no GREAT tv down. *sigh Arrested Development*

    Yes, the show was picked up for a second season and is to begin filming sometime in 2008. However, since Flight of the Conchords used 98% of their songs in the first season, no premiere date has been set.

    Is this show actually made by HBO, or is it an import like Extra's which was made and aired in England first? Because if it's made by some NZ company then new season info might come from there first. I really don't know if that's the case though.

    According to Prime TV station here, Season two is currently "in production". I've found an unconfirmed air date of the 8th of June this year, but i'm prepared to take that date with a very very large grain of salt. (perhaps a salt mine?)

    No premiere date to report, but I do notice in the latest HBO promos for 2008, they have a clip of the Conchords.

    Lenny, from all I've heard, HBO had the world-wide premiere, so its unlikely that the production company was from New Zealand. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that HBO itself made it.

    FYI - Its not made in NZ, our tv network was given first option, but they turned it down *slaps forehead*

    Regretting it now i bet...

    according to HBO, the second season will not air until spring 2009 to give the band some time to write more songs.

    I heard that since they used up most of their songs they're going to keep season 2 episodes at a low number to stop from producing crappy songs just for the sake of the show. I think thats smart of them. Anyway its good to see poeple on this site aknowledging great television like arrested development and this. I had almost lost all hope in poeples viewing choices.

    I agree with the band in them wanting to produce "quality" episodes, not the quantity.

    If anyone follows BBC comedy shows, their series/ seasons are usually 6 - 8 episodes. I know this is not a foreign show or was ever one, but I'm wholeheartedly agreeing with the quality over quantity issue.

    HBO shows do follow a 10-12 episode cycle, so I'm hoping the longer wait means we see at least that many when season 2 is out. Any more on a yearly basis would be asking for too much.

    Yeah season 2 has been announced, but it'll start January 2009. Stupid writer's strike.
