...that was, until 1999. By this point, Columbia, had given rise to three additional brand names for film production: TriStarPictures, Triumph Films, and art-house unit Sony Pictures Classics. Deciding that three brands wasn't enough, the company decided to revive the Screen Gems name for "films that fall between the wide-release movies traditionally developed and distributed by Columbia Pictures and those released by Sony Pictures Classics," mostly of the action/thriller genre. They are essentially Sony/Columbia's answer to MiramaxFilms/TheWeinsteinCompany's DimensionFilms. Under this new regime, Screen Gems enjoys a healthy lifestyle, releasing several successful films, including the ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' series and [[Film/ResidentEvil films]] based on ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''.

Columbia wasn't done with the Screen Gems name yet, however. In 1948, two years after the name was stripped of its cartoon studio status, the name went in use as the name for Columbia's television unit. It started off distributing Columbia films on TV, but later began making its own series, such as ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'', ''Series/TheMonkees'' and ''ThePartridgeFamily''. It also distributed most of the early shows from Creator/HannaBarbera. During this time, Screen Gems gave birth to its most iconic VanityPlate, the S filmstrip. The version used during this era was notorious for being NightmareFuel, giving it the nickname, "The S From Hell".

The big reason for the Screen Gems name being used for Columbia's TV shows was because the then-new novelty had a negative stigma from the then-floundering movie studios, most of which wanted no part in the potentially threatening medium; only Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures had actually dipped its toes into the novelty. However, by 1974, virtually all of the fear of TV by the studios had subsided, and they'd made their own TV production departments. This meant that the Screen Gems name had little purpose anymore, and Columbia decided it was time to retire the Screen Gems name for good...
