Abstract
How to study the specificity of television series building evolving, shapeshifting, open, fragmented narratives? Questioning the use of the notion of complexity within and beyond narratology, this article proposes to read television series through an interdisciplinary perspective focused on spatialization. Indeed, beyond textual analysis and in the absence of primary sources on the production side (sources that more often than not prove inaccessible), the television series scholar is bound to explore the intermediate space between representation and reception – a complex space frequently navigated by users, as shown by the circular model of participatory culture (Jenkins, 2013).
