Flight Of The Conchords star Jemaine Clement is heading back to the small screen.

New Zealand duo Jemaine Clement and Bret MCKenzie wrapped a two-season run of their cult comedy series on America's HBO network in 2009, and started making plans to turn the project into a movie.

But that has yet to take off, and now Clement has revealed that bosses at Hbo have commissioned a new four-episode series, which will feature Clement and frequent Conchords director Taika Waititi.

And Clement tells The Guardian he has other big plans for Flight of the Conchords, revealing, "Bret, (director) James (Bobin) and me, we all want to do a musical. It would be good to do something all together... I miss playing Flight of the Conchords gigs."

It's not clear when the new four-part series will air.
