Which TV characters have a life after ”death”?

Which TV characters do you still think about? I always wonder if the Seinfeld gang ever got out of jail. — Elizabeth Stites
Party of Five left Charlie (Matthew Fox) with an infant daughter and Bailey (Scott Wolf) ditched by Sarah (Jennifer Love Hewitt spun off her coy character — whom I don’t think about — in the quickly axed Time of Your Life). With the Salingers’ propensity for alcoholism, illness, and generally poor choices in mates, I worry. We know what happened to Family Ties‘ Alex Keaton (Michael J. Fox), thanks to a sly one-time mention on Fox’s later show, Spin City: He became a mouthy U.S. senator (no doubt helping Ohio go Republican this last election). Still, a fuller update on the political dervish would be welcome. The Wonder Years‘ finale cleverly cast into the future, where Kevin (Fred Savage) and Winnie (Danica McKellar) had parted ways, and Kevin was married with a son. As of 1993. I sorta hope that since then Winnie has bought a house next door with her daughter, thus igniting a second generation of Arnold-Cooper infatuation.
