Spaced Was Tied Too Closely To Edgar Wright's Life For Him To Make A Season 3
The British TV show "Spaced," starring Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson, was cinematic in the sense that it was packed with movie references and provided an early showcase for Edgar Wright's now-familiar filmmaking techniques like crash zooms and breakneck whip-pans. The show seemed fully ripe for a third season when it concluded, but that never came to pass.
Wright noted that “Spaced” never received another season because not only did he want to focus on movies but everyone involved had “grown out” of the show. He added, “I feel like the show is an extension of us, how we were living at the time, and we did all live in North London — me, Simon, and Jess all lived not far away from Tufnell Park."
Time has done little to dampen "Spaced" fans' desire for a third season, an idea Pegg squashed, saying, "The more they ask, the less likely it is. It couldn't possibly ever exist again... I don't know what I have to say that's relatable about life now. It's not gonna happen, kids, unless you want a sitcom about some clueless actor who can't tie his own shoelaces."
