** This is actually an unusual case that was the result of a last minute change. It was originally going to be TheRemake, with a new cast playing re-imagined versions of the same characters, with most (or all) of the episodes just being remakes of episodes from the original series. This changed shortly after Phil Morris was brought on. He was originally going to play his father's character (Barney Collier) from the original series. At the last minute, they changed the premise to be a revival/continuation rather than a remake, changed his name to Grant Collier, and made him Barney Collier's son, setting the stage for a RealLifeRelative moment when Greg appeared as Barney in an episode.

* ''{{Transformers}}'' does this constantly. At first there was ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', which took place in the same continuity as ''TransformersGeneration1'' and as such fully fits the definition of a revival. After that, Hasbro decided to go the way of {{Alternate Universe}}s with ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'', the Anime/UnicronTrilogy, Creator/MichaelBay's [[Film/{{Transformers}} movies]], ''TransformersAnimated'', and ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''

** ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' ran from the 1970s to the 1980s. It was revived in the late 2000s with Wayne Brady as the host. Many people liked Brady's take on the show and former host Monty Hall approves of Brady's performance.

* 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.
