* The sitcom ''Series/EightSimpleRules'' once did a ActorAllusion involving John Ritter's character, where he had a nightmare that he was in an episode of ''ThreesCompany'', complete with a rebuilt version of the apartment set from that show.

* They had to recreate the miniatures from ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' for ''Film/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact'' because the originals were destroyed after filming ''2001'' to make sure they wouldn't be [[PropRecycling reused in other movies]].

(Ironically, the rebuilt ''2010'' versions did get reused - the Pod turned up as an EasterEgg in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', and the spacesuits in ''Series/BabylonFive''.)

** A variation in the fourth season episode "Doomed", the gang revisit the ruins of the original Sunnydale High, and although they are shown in a state of disrepair, the floor plan is recognisably the same as that from seasons 1 to 3. So, the set needed to be [[RebuiltSet rebuilt...]] [[TrashTheSet but in a trashed state]].

* The later ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series have rebuilt or partially rebuilt sets from the original ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'' from time to time ("Relics" of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', "Trials and Tribble-ations" of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and "In a Mirror, Darkly" of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'').
** The TOS bridge set in "Relics" was built partly from original props and on the original stage, but they rented a replica of the captain's chair from a fan. Kirk's original chair went missing at some point, apparently.

** Some ''Next Generation'' sets were rebuilt for the ''Enterprise'' finale "These Are The Voyages..." Only a small part of Ten Forward was rebuilt with StockFootage being used for an EstablishingShot of the room. The only set which did not have to be rebuilt from scratch was the observation lounge, which had since been modified to become the observation lounge of the ''Enterprise''-E, so they just had to modify it back.
** The ''Excelsior'' bridge from ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' was rebuilt for the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Flashback". The original was built in twelve weeks and the ''Voyager'' crew had to replicate it in two, resulting in the design being subtly simplified.
** The Klingon Bird of Prey set was completely altered for Star Trek IV when it was the main ship of the film making look far more hero like instead of the antagonist it was in III. Kruge's thronelike command chair was turned into a more modest looking one for Kirk and the control stations were rearranged in a more traditional Enterprise like configuration of Sulu and Chekov towards the front of the command chair (though notably reversed, Sulu on the right and Chekov on the left, when it's usually the opposite) and Spock and Uhura in the back. The lighting was also changed, removing the darkened room with ominous red lighting to a more traditional lighting scheme making everything easier to see.

*** The iconic original Peter Brachacki design from "An Unearthly Child" (with the famous white roundelled walls) remained more or less the same (with some simplifications and replacements) for most of the original 1963-89 series. An attempt to replace it in "The Time Monster" was so unpopular with the cast and crew that the old one was brought back in the next story.
*** "The Masque of Mandragora" introduced a Victorian-style "secondary control room" based around wooden panelling and copper metalwork, which managed to be totally {{Steampunk}} a good twenty years before the first stirrings of the movement. This tied into the "Film/HammerHorror" theme of the period. It was used for the whole of that season, but was unfortunately damaged beyond repair in storage afterwards, leading to a return to the old set.
*** "The Five Doctors" introduced an updated central console, which included more electronic components (which unfortunately backfired, with improvements in electronic equipment meaning that this set suffers much more badly from {{Zeerust}} than the original).
*** A few eighties stories (in particular "Planet of Fire" and "The Ultimate Foe") featured scenes in the console room of the Master's TARDIS, which was created simply by covering many of the surfaces of the usual set with black vinyl wrap to give a [[EvilWearsBlack more villainous look]].
*** "Doctor Who: The Movie" redesigned the whole console room in a very {{Steampunk}} style.

*** "The Day of the Doctor" rebuilt the pre-1989 white console room (not identically, but recognisably) for the console room of the War Doctor's TARDIS. Obviously the Eighth Doctor's Steampunk stylings didn't impress his next self.

* The Clansman pub from ''Series/StillGame'' was real. However it closed after the filming of the first series and a replica interior was built. The exterior continued to be used until the building was demolished a few years later. Again, a replica was built for exterior shots, in the same studio lot where soap drama ''RiverCity'' is filmed.

** A side effect was that no floor plans for the original set were known to still exist. The production team on the movie laboriously recreated the ship by eye, from rewatching the television episodes over and over.

** The scene for Ach-To, the planet where Rey finds Luke in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', was originally filmed on location on an island called Skellig Michael. However, due to filming being harmful for local, rare wildlife, sets built to look like the island were used for ''Film/TheLastJedi' instead.

A set has to be rebuilt. Sometimes this is due to it having been taken down between movies, and the designers take the opportunity to [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks revamp the set]] in the meantime. Other times its because they want to do something nostalgic, and this often involves rebuilding a set from an earlier version of the franchise.

Common to film sequels, but also a horribly common problem in videogames, since source files are so poorly kept track of. In the case of sets that have been changed, sometimes the producers choose to TrashTheSet to explain why they've been changed.

** An example of the revamp the set version: the ''Millennium Falcon'' interior sets were outfitted with more flashing lights and other detailing between ''Film/ANewHope'' and ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.

** Some places originally shot on location were later reproduced as sets at Leavesden Studios. For example, Privet Drive was a real street on [[Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone the first movie]], but a backlot reproduction was used from the second movie onwards. The hospital wing was Oxford Divinity School in the first movie, but it became a set in the second film. Amusingly, Oxford Divinity School later appeared as a different room in [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire the fourth movie]]. In a weird example, Snape's classroom was filmed in the Lacock Abbey sacristy in the first film, but later his classroom became a set which did not even remotely look like the same room. It appears they took the Snape's office set from the second movie and revamped it into his classroom for [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix the fifth movie]] (the classroom does not appear onscreen between the first and fifth movies).
