Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie had already scheduled a Flight of the Conchords stage tour of the United Kingdom for March and April.

The special event was officially announced today by Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming.

The guitar-based digi-bongo acapella rap-funk-comedy folk duo will be returning to HBO for special in May 2018 this year. The show racked up 10 Emmy nominations over the course of its two seasons.

The upcoming special will apparently feature a selection of old Flight of the Conchords favourites, as well as new material. The show was praised by critics and beloved by fans, turning the cult favorites into an global sensation. Clement's film credits include the "Rio" movies (2011, 2014), "Men in Black 3" (2012) and "The BFG" (2016).

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie first debuted on HBO in 2005 in an episode of the stand-up series "One Night Stand", then reappeared again 2007 for their self-titled hit series.

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