* ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' was rather explictly a sequel series to ''TransformersGeneration1'', though it takes place [[{{TimeyWimeyBall}} before ]] ''[[TimeyWimeyBall and]]'' [[TimeyWimeyBall after it]], and uses elements from both the G1 cartoon and 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''.
* ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' was followed by ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'' and (after some ExecutiveMeddling to try and make it fit into the timeline) ''Anime/TransformersCybertron''. Collectively they later became known as the Unicron Trilogy.

* In an interesting and bizarre variation of the trope, 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).
* As part of DC's new editorial direction on June 2015 ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'' was spun into two different titles: ''Starfire'' and ''ComicBook/RedHoodArsenal''. Only the latter is a direct continuation, Starfire's book has a little to do with ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws''

* ''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 ''SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', due to the continued prominence of ComicBook/LexLuthor and ComicBook/{{Brainiac}} as well as continuing several {{Myth Arc}}s from ''Superman TAS''.
