A rerun or repeat is a re-airing of an episode of a media (usually television) program. The invention of the rerun is generally credited to [[ILoveLucy Desi Arnaz]]. Some viewers find reruns annoying, although many viewers appreciate the opportunity to re-watch a program they enjoyed or watch one they missed the first time round. There are two types of reruns, those that occur during a hiatus, and those that occur when a program is syndicated.

In the United Kingdom, most drama and comedy series run [[BritishBrevity for shorter seasons]] - typically 6, 7 or 13 episodes - and are then replaced by others. An exception is soap operas which are either on all year round (for example EastEnders and Coronation Street), or are on for a season similar to the American system.

Early on in the history of British television, agreements with the actors' union Equity and other trade bodies limited the number of times a single programme could be broadcast, usually only twice, and these showings were limited to within a set time period such as five years. This was due to the unions' fear that the channels filling their schedules with repeats could put actors and other production staff out of work as fewer new shows would be made. It also had the unintentional side effect of causing many programmes to be junked after their repeat rights had expired, as they were considered to be of no further use by the broadcasters. Although these agreements changed during the 1980s and beyond, it is still expensive to repeat archive television series on British terrestrial television, as new contracts have to be drawn up and payments made to the artists concerned. Repeats on multi-channel television are cheaper, as are re-showings of newer programmes covered by less strict repeat clauses. However, programmes are no longer destroyed, as the historical and cultural reasons for keeping them have now been seen, even of the programmes have little or no repeat value.

(And also because modern digital storage is much cheaper and takes up much less space than film or video tape.)

No-one anticipated the long life that a popular television series would eventually see in syndication, so most performers signed contracts that limited residual payments to about six repeats. After that, the actors received nothing and the production company would keep 100% of any income. This situation went unchanged until the mid-1970s, when contracts for new shows extended residual payments for the performers, regardless of the number of reruns.

Exceptions have included Creator/DonAdams for ''Series/GetSmart'' (Who smartly chose co-ownership over a higher immediate salary) and Dawn Wells for ''Series/GilligansIsland''.
