Simon Pegg Toys With Fans, Teases the Return of Spaced

Simon Pegg got Spaced fans all, well, a-Twitter last night with a single comment on the social-media platform.

The actor, whose latest collaboration with director and co-writer Edgar Wright and co-star Nick Frost The World’s End arrives Aug. 23, recently dyed his hair blond, sparking speculation among his Twitter followers. In an apparent effort to put all the question to rest, Pegg tweeted, “It’s for Spaced, series 4. We decided to skip 3 because we said we wouldn’t do it so many times, we didn’t want to be hypocritical.”

That was followed by, “I’m deadly serious guys, we’re not doing a season 3.” And then, “I’m sorry to toy with your emotions. If it’s any consolation, Mark Heap, Julia Deakin and Michael Smiley are all in The World’s End. #spaced”

Airing from 1999 to 2001 on the U.K.’s Channel 4, Spaced starred co-creators Pegg and Jessica Stevenson as two London 20-somethings who meet while apartment-hunting and decide to pose as a professional couple to meet the requirements for a cheap flat in an apartment building owned by Deakin’s character. Frost, Heap, Smiley and Katy Carmichael also appeared in the series, which was directed by Wright.

    As much as I love Spaced I really think this is just a bit of a cool joke and not really news worthy

    Such a great show. I would love more but I don’t see it happening.

  • BigTrainWreck

    How’s that for a slice of fried gold.

    Wright and Pegg too busy with their film careers. Jessica Hynes too busy with her own TV work (her new sitcom just got recommissioned). They’re all too old to do that show any more anyway. Never going to happen.

    How are they too old to live in an apartment and be friends…?

    Middle aged unemployed slackers conjure feelings of pity or anger not the charm of young folk

    The show is about being in your late 20s. Going back to that would be a bit of a cheat. (A point underlined by the DVD extra.)

    given how much i loved spaced. given how the creators said no season three. i will believe spaced has returned when it happens. for even though they say they are skipping season 3 for four it would still be considered a third season.
