After months of speculation about the future of the HBO series, ‘Flight of the Conchords,’ The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the cult hit is over. Although Season 2 garnered an Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy Nomination, the New Zealand imports won’t be back.

Co-creators Bret McKenzie, Jemaine Clement and James Bobin confirmed the news Monday on their official site:

“We’ve noticed the less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing that we won’t be returning for a 3rd season. We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched it. While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jemaine will continue to exist.”

Another show that won’t live to see another season is MTV’s ‘It’s on with Alexa Chung.’

Variety reports that the season finale on Dec. 17th will be the last for the show’s quirky host.

Chung’s contact ends in early 2010, but the music channel is not squashing future plans with her saying that they are “leaving it open.”
