Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie are to return to television with a new, previously teased Flight of the Conchords HBO special to be released in May.

The network has confirmed one is on the way, but don't expect a new scripted thing like the series, the special will be a taping of one of their upcoming live shows in the UK.

There has been immense interest in the tour, with tickets selling out in seconds and more dates having to be added.

Adapted from a successful radio show, Flight of the Conchords arrived on HBO in 2007.

It only ran for two seasons, but this was enough for it to gain a fierce cult following, especially in the UK where it was broadcast on BBC Two.
