Like anything having to do with TV production, this trope has a dark side thanks to corporate greed. Note that if a sequel series follows soon after its predecessor, to the point it may as well be a new season, then it's probably a blatant case of LoopholeAbuse [[CorruptCorporateExecutive on the part of the production company]] to cheat the actors out of a portion of the show's profits. Under US law, and possibly a few other countries, if a television series runs over a certain number of episodes then the cast are entitled to a percentage of the show's take, in addition to their normal salaries. However, it doesn't take more than some minor rebranding to have a show's new season be legally considered a completely different property, meaning the poor schlubs putting in the work are back at square one.

** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' was rather explictly a sequel series to ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'', though it takes place [[{{TimeyWimeyBall}} before ]] ''[[TimeyWimeyBall and]]'' [[TimeyWimeyBall after it]], and uses elements from both [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers the G1 cartoon]] and [[ComicBook/TheTransformers the comic]] - WordOfGod states that Generation 1 has become like Arthurian legend to them, with the stories we know being their distortions of "actual" history. In turn, ''Beast Wars'' was given its own Sequel Series called ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines''.
