* Series/{{Mythbusters}} announced in late 2015 that their 2016 season would be the last. However, on March 31 2016, just days after the series finale aired, The Science Channel announced that they are rebooting the franchise, and are on the search for a new generation of Mythbusters. Many believe it to be an AprilFoolsDay prank. However, since the news was widely carried and since there's no retractions, it's assumed that the revival is real.

* ''TheBradyBunch'' was briefly revived in the 1980s as ''The Bradys''. It violated the usual rule by transforming from a HalfHourComedy to a DramaticHourLong, and suffered in the ratings for it; in an attempt to rescue the show, the producers tried to turn it back into a comedy by arbitrarily inserting a LaughTrack into the existing dramatic plot line! Prior to ''The Bradys'', there was also a short-lived comedy series called ''The Brady Brides,'' which ran for six episodes and featured Jan and Marcia as newlyweds.

Differs from a {{Transplant}} in scale and in the passage of real-world time. It is not strictly necessary for ''any'' of the original characters to return (though this depends on the nature of the show: shows set in the "real world" typically need a character (or family) to link the incarnations, while in SpeculativeFiction, the universe of the show can serve this purpose), but when they don't, you can usually count on one of them to return as a SpecialGuest. Often, a front-line character from the original series is now OlderAndWiser, and promoted to the position of TheObiWan.

* Also from Hasbro are the ''MyLittlePony'' cartoons. Less frequent than ''Transformers'', but nonetheless they've had three or four different cartoons. ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has experienced a massive explosion in popularity, due in no small part to the fact that the creative director is LaurenFaust of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' and ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' fame[[note]]Who apparently didn't particularly care for the original cartoons, and was a little skeptical when her bosses told her this is what they wanted her to be doing[[/note]], who bent over backwards to make the show enjoyable for parents as well as the actual target demographic.

* The original [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_Nuova_500 Fiat 500]] is a supermini that is considered utterly terrible in some nations (even the United Kingdom).

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' is fairly unique among other anime series in the fact that it goes through constant revivals every few years with a few movies, {{OVA}}s, and mangas sprinkled in between. First there was the original ''Macross'' series that aired from 1982-1983. ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' was aired from 1994-1995 and was based on a colony ship with two main characters from the original series being carried over. The most recent 2008 series, ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', takes place several decades after ''Macross 7'' in a different colony ship.
