* In ''A Home at the End of the World'', Colin Farrell's character is played by Andrew Chalmers and Erik Smith, and Dallas Roberts's by Jonathan Glover (no, [[{{Smallville}} not that one]]). Sissy Spacek, on the other hand, stays on throughout; eight years isn't that much when you're already over 50.

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' had Mordred played by twelve-year-old Asa Butterfield in the first two series, after which he was PutOnABus and not seen again until series 5, where he's now played by twenty-three-year-old Alexander Vlahos. However, this is justified considering seven years have passed on-screen, thanks to the [[TimeSkip Time Skips]] that occur between seasons.

* In ''PushingDaisies'', two of the main characters are Ned (played by Lee Pace) and Chuck (played by Anna Friel). However, every episode opens with a flashback to Ned's childhood, where Ned and Chuck are played by Field Cate and Sammi Hanratty, respectively. Olive (Kristin Chenoweth), Emerson (Chi [=McBride=]) and Lily (Swoosie Kurtz)also got a flashback each in season 2, in which they were played by Samantha Bailey, Stephen Wash, Jr. and [[TheSarahConnorChronicles Mackenzie Brooke Smith]], respectively. * Every episode of ''{{Psych}}'' also begins with a flashback, with younger actors playing Shawn and Gus. However, Corbin Bernsen, who plays Shawn's father, just wears makeup and [[HairTodayGoneTomorrow a hairpiece]] to make him look younger. We get a LampshadeHanging, of course.

* ''Series/AmericanHorrorStory'' generally avoids this trope, preferring to age actors up or down when needed by using makeup and FX, but they have used it a couple of times, specifically when older actors needed to be aged down drastically rather than by a decade or two: ** Dr Arden/Hans Gruber, who first appeared in ''Asylum'' but later returned in ''Freak Show'' as one of the series' first recurring characters, is played by Creator/JamesCromwell for the most part, but by his son John Cromwell in flashbacks to his youth (notably, this encompasses all the character's scenes in ''Freak Show''). ** In ''Coven'', Fiona and Myrtle are played by series regulars Jessica Lange and Frances Conroy, respectively. However, since both those ladies are in their sixties, younger actresses were used to portray them as teenagers in flashbacks: Riley Voelkel as Young Fiona, Michelle Page as Young Myrtle. Amusingly, they don't do the same for the coven's servant Spalding, who is played by Denis O'Hare in both time frames.

* Season 2 of ''Series/{{Fargo}}'' acts as a prequel to Season 1 taking place nearly thirty years previously, with three characters carried over. Molly Solverson, the protagonist of the first season played by Alison Tolman, appears as a little girl played by Raven Stewart. Meanwhile, her father Lou, a semi-retiree in his 60s played by Creator/KeithCarradine in the first season, is now the thirty-something protagonist, being played by Patrick Wilson. There's a secondary character carried over in the form of Ben Schmidt, Gus's boss from the first season (where he was played by Peter Breitmayer), whom Lou ends up rather reluctantly working with in the second (where he's now played by Keir O'Donnell).
