Later in the week, Nick and Lisa meet at the supermarket and go on a date to the 1950s. However, another trip to 2041 reveals that GenCorp abused Nick's time travel technology and destroyed the future. Nick and Lisa's efforts to reverse the damage take up the remainder of the film. This ultimately culminates in a fight in 1777 during the American Revolution, the deaths of the present Nick, Lisa, Matt, and Robertson, and the destruction of the time machine before the original demo, thus ensuring that the majority of the film's events never happen in the first place. The film ends with a past Nick (now aware of the danger of his time machine) sabotaging his demonstration, getting Matt fired, and again meeting Lisa in the supermarket as he did in the previous timeline.

Some sources claim that the GenCorp executive's desk is actually at the top of the stairs at Castleton State College near Rutland, but other sources claim it was filmed at the Rutland Opera House; director David Giancola says that "[i]t was a combination of both the offices and studios of radio station WJJR 98.1 and The Howard Bank. The exteriors were of the local power utility, VELCO. When heckling it, the MST3K crew lampooned it as being in a public library.
For the showing on MST3K, the cast and crew had a reunion party to view the lampooning. MST3K star Mike Nelson claims that some at the party were not happy at the mocking, in particular Peter Harrington. Director Giancola said they all "laughed their asses off," but also admitted that some people at the time "took it a bit too seriously."
A stray comment on the MST3K version lead to this film incorrectly appearing on the IMDB profile for Lisa Kudrow for a number of years. The role of "worshipful one" is actually played by Vicky A. Bourn, in her one and only film role.
A sequel to Time Chasers has been announced as being in early pre-production. The title for the sequel is Time Chasers 2 - Nick of Time which was taken from a fan made poster submitted to Edgewood studios. A popular phrase from the MST3K parody was "Dinner and a future anyone?"
