Flight of the Conchords Confirm HBO Special

No word yet on whether Murray and Mel will be "present" for the new HBO special, though.

Brett McKenzie and Jemaine Clement will tape a performance on their upcoming United Kingdom tour to air as an hour-long special on HBO, the network where their sitcom aired in the USA from 2007 to 2009.

New Zealanders McKenzie and Clement first debuted on HBO back in 2005 in an edition of the comedy series "One-Night Stand". The cult favorite signed off the air in 2009 after two seasons and 22 episodes, having earned Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Clement.

The Conchords have also enjoyed individual success. McKenzie was the music supervisor for "The Muppets" (2011), which won him an Academy Award® for Best Original Song for "Man or Muppet", and "Muppets Most Wanted" (2014).

HBO confirmed on Friday that the "something" was the comedy special, which will premiere on the network in May.

The duo, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, made the announcement on Facebook this morning.
