I agree with rebelstar, Raven and all the other ''just leave it'' people. As much as I love the original series and it's characters, I'd prefer it if it were left alone; the two series that already exist are a pretty perfect little parcel and any continuation would have to be utterly amazing to possibly top them. If they can deliver something utterly amazing, then that'd be fantastic, but I still think that Series 2 ended in the perfect way and that any attempt to follow it, however good, would mar that in my mind.
What about their plan to pan out the story of Tim & Daisy getting together?
What about the fact that Simon & Jess have already written the first scene of what was going to be series 3?
What if they all said it was actually going ahead (they've all said it'd be nice to go back to Spaced eventually), that they'd spent a couple of months writing already & they were more than happy with the way it was going?... Would you then still
not want them to make it?
.... For shame on all of yous. Get outta my forum!!!
...^ sorry, I went over the top a bit there.
I used to be a massive Red Dwarf fan. I was always excited by the news that a new series was being made. The production crew (and budget) varied from series to series, and the actors got older... but the quality was still there. ...Until 1997 when Rob Grant(one of the writers) left. Most people agree series 7 & 8 were pants.
What I'm saying is, a series can still be as good as it's origins so long as it has the same creative team behind it.
If Simon and Jess (& Edgar) did write more Spaced, you wouldn't want to know?
Series 2 did end perfectly, (as all non-cliffhanger series should) but it was always on the cards that they'd make a 3rd. ... they just got ... distracted ...by some zombies.

For all our speculation and opinion it was just really a throwaway question by the interviewer at the very end of the piece. There was no indication that Jess had even considered the idea until she was put on the spot.
True. But it's nice that its sparked the debate again.
