Flight Of The Conchords could return as a musical or movie

Plus win DVDs and a trip to New Zealand

Flight Of The Conchords could be back as a movie, a stage show – or not at all, according to one of the cast.

Rhys Darby, who plays the duo’s hapless manager Murray Hewitt, told NME.COM that having wrapped up the second series – which was released on DVD this week (August 3) – that the digi-folk duo are pausing before deciding the show’s future.

“I’m open to whatever Bret [McKenzie] and Jermaine [Clement] want, it’s their baby and I’m just along for the ride. I know they’re going to take a year off, but there’s already a bit of pressure already from people saying ‘How can you end this thing now?,'” explained Darby.


“There’s no decision made. There’s been orders for another season but I know the guys have a British mentality where you create something, you finish it and move on. We’re being pulled different ways. Even if we do go on, there are different options there. Do we do a Christmas special, or a film or even turn it into a stage show and tour the world with it? It’s still a full on ‘who knows?’ scenario!”

In the meantime you can get your Flight Of The Conchords fix with NME.COM. Enter our competition to win the second season on DVD, or if you’re feeling more adventurous we also have a prize of a trip to New Zealand courtesy of the duo.
