* ConversationalTroping in Music/MitchBenn's ''That Was the Future'' show, where he says that there will never be a setting update of ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', with a NewTens Marty going back to TheEighties.
-->Because what would be the equivalent of Johnny B. Goode and "Your kids are gonna love it"? "''[[Music/{{Oasis}} Today is gonna be the day that you're gonna get it back to you...]]''" "I don't know about my kids, I think my ''dad'' might like it."

* This used to be commonplace for Franchise/SherlockHolmes movies. For instance, only the first two of the Rathbone/Bruce series in the 1930s-1940s took place in the Victorian era. Nowadays the world is different enough that setting them in the present day would drastically affect the concept, which is probably why it's no longer done as often.

** The 2013 version takes it a step further by making the prominence of social media and cyberbullying a PlotPoint. Carrie's video isn't just seen by her school anymore, it goes viral, contributing to her breakdown. She also uses Google to look up information about her powers.

* When StephenSondheim and George Furth musicalized the play ''Merrily We Roll Along'', they reset the action between 1980 (about when the musical was produced) and 1955. (Kaufman and Hart's original play went from 1934, when it was written, to 1916, and was also BackToFront.)

** DC and Marvel update their universes gradually since they've been publishing comics for decades with no end in sight, and because the Marvel Universe doesn't reboot as often its continuity is maintained in BroadStrokes, sometimes resulting in modern stories where characters recall events from issues written in the 1960s. It's generally accepted by readers that most of the stories from both companies take place during the time they were written, unless noted otherwise.
