* ''Naruto Shippudden'' takes place 2-3 years after the original ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' anime. The Naruto series later gets a full sequel of its own in ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'', which focuses on Naruto's son.



* ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'' is followed by ''Anime/AquarionEvol''.

* ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'' is followed by ''Anime/AquarionEvol''. ''Anime/AquarionLogos'', however, averts it, as it's not in continuity with ''Evol.''



* ''Series/FullerHouse'' takes place 20 years after the end of the original ''Series/FullHouse'', with DJ raising three boys with the help of her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy.

** All 'series from the Showa era (''Series/UltraQ, Series/{{Ultraman}}, Series/UltraSeven, Series/ReturnOfUltraman, Series/UltramanAce, Series/UltramanTaro, Series/UltramanLeo, Series/UltramanEighty'') share the same continuity, although the idea was not established until ''Return of Ultraman''. Heisei entries ''Series/UltramanMebius, Series/UltraGalaxyMegaMonsterBattle'', and the''Franchise/UltramanZero'' movies also share the same universe, but also feature monsters from other series. To make it more confusing, ''Series/UltramanMax'' and the Heisei ''Ultraseven'' series are set in alternate continuations of the universe where their respective Ultras are the only ones to visit Earth.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' was a sequel to the entire Franchise/{{DCAU}} most particularly ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' taking place in the nearly-distant future, where Bruce Wayne has retired and a new Batman takes up the mantle. Before that, ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]'' took place a few years after the original series, although it's sometimes considered just a continuation, not a whole new series. ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague (Unlimited)'' was a sequel series to all of the DCAU, but was most clearly a successor to ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', due to the continued prominence of ComicBook/LexLuthor and ComicBook/{{Brainiac}} as well as continuing several {{Myth Arc}}s from ''Superman TAS''.

Like anything having to do with TV production, this trope has a dark side. 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 U.S 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.

** ''The Next Generation'' was followed not even a year later by ''Degrassi: Next Class''



* Creator/Nicktoons's ''WesternAnimation/VoltronForce'' is this to the [[Anime/{{Voltron}} original series]] from several decades ago, though only 5 to 7 years have passed in-story.
** Though its unclear if ''WesternAnimation/VoltronTheThirdDimension'' is still canon ([[BroadStrokes at least in part]]) or [[CanonDiscontinuity not]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' is not a sequel to ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' in any way, although it's tried to create the impression that it's either a sequel to EMH or an [[AlternateContinuity alternate continuity]] sequel series to ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' film. In fact, it's neither, since it's actually set in the [[WesternAnimation/MarvelUniverse same universe]] as ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' and ''WesternAnimation/HulkAndTheAgentsOfSMASH''

Like anything having to do with TV production, this trope has a dark side thanks to corporate greed. 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.

* In an interesting and bizarre variation of the trope, Music/MyChemicalRomance's album, DangerDays, has a sequel in the form of a comic book mini series, ''The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys'', written by MCR's lead singer and noted comic book writer, Gerard Way (who also wrote ComicBook/TheUmbrellaAcademy).
