LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Quirky HBO comedy series" The Flight of the Conchords" will not return for third season.

After months of speculation, co-creators Bret McKenzie, Jemaine Clement and James Bobin broke the news on their Web 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 third season," they wrote. "We're very proud of the two seasons we made, and we like the way the show ended."

The show's combination of story line and original songs, and the fact that the trio continue to reside in their native New Zealand, are factors that have made "Conchords" difficult to produce, prompting speculation over the past few months that McKenzie, Clement and Bobin would not return for a third season.

The show's second season earned a best comedy series Emmy nomination and a best actor nomination for Clement.
