According to Simon Pegg, what the future held for the characters was always left ambiguous at the end of the show. But that hasn't stopped him imagining where they wound up. Tim and Daisy end up together and have a daughter. Pegg said it was always the plan to get them together, even if it never occurred throughout the show. Brian has a long and happy life with Twist and after his death, his work becomes incredibly popular and sells for millions. Twist winds up in suspended animation and awakes in the future where she finds, to her disgust, everyone wearing silver. Mike ends up with Dexter and moves to South London. Pegg added if there had been a third series, it would end in a Blake's 7 style shoot-out. But he and Stevenson knew the Series 2 finale would be the very last episode while they were writing it.

"Spaced" has never been broadcast (to my knowledge) on French TV, so I bought the complete 2 seasons series on Amazon after seeing Shaun of the Dead, which I consider to be one of the best comedies ever. Well, even without any subtitles (I get around in English), "Spaced" appears to me as the exact epitome of what British TV can do at its best : a perfect brew of comedy, rhythm, political incorrectness, extraordinary acting, stylish writing, socially-oriented matters... I really was mesmerized at the creativity both screenwriters and director displayed all along the 14 episodes, always renewing what could be taken as pure show-off style on the first one. This is why I love British comedy, TV & cinema. Wit. Man do they have it. Simon Pegg if you ever read this : you ARE the Force !
