The biggest causes are either a campaign by fans (along with a compliant creator), or high sales in other media, such as DVD. If the show is not popular enough to warrant a whole new series but an ending is in demand by fans, then a TV movie or miniseries may be ordered to WrapItUp.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' was originally stated to be released on the NES, but due to the console being at the end of its life cycle and the SNES taking off in popularity, Nintendo canceled the game after it was finished since they wanted to focus more on the SNES. Nearly 30 years later, the game was finally released on the Wii U's Virtual Console as ''[=EarthBound Beginnings=] in order differentiate itself from the SNES title since the NES version originally did not have "beginnings" in the title.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRoboMouse'' was originally announced for the Wii U eShop before getting cancelled, but then the creator got motivated by playing in an arcade and decided to un-cancel Super Robo Mouse and release it as a multi-platform game.



* CopperCab's videos were almost done for, when his channel got hacked by someone that he had known in real life that got annoyed by his supposed arrogance. However, CopperCab fought for the rights back to his channel and succeeded by only dying his hair and doing a dance/rap video, and uncanceled his videos from that moment on, ever since.

-->-- ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' (taking this trope [[TakeThat the wrong way]])

* ''WesternAnimation/{{ReBoot}}'' aired two seasons between 1994-1996 and was canceled by ABC because of the Disney buyout. They even had a sly dig at them in the final episode of the second season by calling the enemy vehicles Armored Binome Carriers (ABC's). "The ABC's, they turned on us!" "Treacherous dogs!" But the show was co-financed by YTV in Canada so they managed a decent {{Syndication}} deal and eventually produced a third season in 1998 that wrapped up the major plots and gave a happy ending to the characters (although left hints towards a new story arc). After being picked up by Cartoon Network and doing well in the ratings, they helped finance a fourth season in 2001 that resolved prior issues and ended on a {{Cliffhanger}} which had to be resolved in comic book form. There are continuing rumors of a revival still. The rumors were confirmed in October 2013 when it was announced that a new series was being developed, although this will be more of a [[AccidentalPun reboot]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is most likely the TropeCodifier, as uncancellations have become more common since then. Brought back by {{FOX}} after a long hiatus once DVD sales took off and reruns on AdultSwim brought in better ratings than what it had on FOX, who realized exactly how much money they stood to make off the most popular cartoon since ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. What's especially notable here is how in the returning series premiere, Peter recited [[TheLongList an excruciatingly long list]] of FOX shows that ''Family Guy'' was canceled to make room for but were themselves inevitably, if not always abruptly and swiftly, canned (see the page quote for all the shows that tried and failed at replacing ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''). Ironically, since its uncancellation, FOX has absolutely ''refused'' to cancel it again, despite fans saying [[SeasonalRot the show has suffered greatly from lackluster writing and too much reliance conventions such as cut-away gags, cultural references, and throw-away jokes]] in the following years; even Creator/SethMacFarlane himself has said he ''wants Family Guy'' to end already, but FOX won't let him.
