* ''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).

** All 'series from the Showa era (''Series/UltraQ, Series/Ultraman, Series/UltraSeven, Series/ReturnOfUltraman, Series/UltramanAce, Series/UltramanTaro, Series/UltramanLeo, Series/UtramanEighty'') 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.

** ''Series/UltramanDyna'' is set several years after ''Series/UltramanTiga'' with the same attack team, but a totally new cast of characters.
** ''Series/UltramanGinga'' has its very simply titled followup ''Ultraman Ginga S'', which switches from the former's story of childhood friends reencountering each other at their abandoned elementary school to the standard paramilitary formula, along with introducing a new Ultra called Ultraman Victory.
