The show spawned an unofficial somewhat-spinoff series concerning Jack Nibbs, a lonely man desperate to proof his validity as one of the Joneses, which eventually crossed over into the main series itself several times. After three months, both the main and unofficial series came to an end. The possibility of a return for the series was briefly hinted at, but as of 2012 no more information has surfaced, leaving the project effectively dead.
