Examples of Spiritual Successor should be listed on the page for the work that is the successor.
* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' might qualify, despite premiering [[SettingUpdate 66 years after the film]]. ** Also the 1983 Creator/DanAykroyd comedy ''Film/DoctorDetroit'', about a nerdy professor getting involved with prostitutes. ** Actually remade as Film/ASongIsBorn.
