'''Peter''': Well unfortunately, Lois, there's just no more room on the schedule.

* ''Creator/{{Toonami}}'', Creator/CartoonNetwork's sensational {{anime}} block launched in 1997, hit a speed bump thanks to an aggressive [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]-imposed ReTool that left it in a more lighthearted territory- and pigeonholed the fanbase. Eventually, incompetent scheduling, poor variety of shows and Naruto filler led to its end late 2008. However, just like with WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy and WesternAnimation/RobotChicken, Creator/AdultSwim struck again! On AprilFoolsDay 2012, they aired a loving joke broadcast of Toonami, suspiciously aimed toward an ulterior motive: test the waters to see if the block was really that cherished. A Twitter feed for viewers was added for viewers to express their interest in a possible return and the fandom proceeded to ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome flood the feed]]'' with pleas to revive the block. Rumors the return was a hoax were dispelled when SteveBlum, voice of Toonami host TOM himself, and Creator/KyleHebert, a fellow voice actor with equal stature got involved. One month later, licensing deals were struck, and just like what the tagline said, "[[{{Tagline}} Toonami is Back]] [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch Bitches]]."

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' was cancelled '''five''' times over the course of its ten season run, as a result of it not getting [[AdoredByTheNetwork ratings as high as]] [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants a certain sponge]], yet still performing better than every ''other'' animated show on the network. Creator Butch Hartman joked that the network would reliably take him aside and renew the show for another season or two as soon as he'd leave each wrap party.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' was set to end after ''The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour 3'', but after lots of fan protests and the show continuing to get great ratings, Nick changed their minds and renewed it.

* Creator/{{NBC}} announced the cancellation of ''Series/{{Timeless}}'' on May 10, 2017, despite massive popularity and positive reviews among the fans. Due to massive fan outrage which resulted in the show even trending on twitter after news of it's cancellation broke, as well as some quick negotiating between Sony (the company that owns the series) and NBC, the show was quickly renewed 3 days later, in what was possibly the quickest turnaround for a cancelled show in recent history.

* Briefly, the idea of bringing back ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' was thrown around for a while, but initially it didn't stick because there wasn't enough money. So they settled with bringing old episodes of the show back onto NicktoonsNetwork instead and creating a comic book continuation in 2015. However, in April 2017 a GrandFinale in the form of a 90-minute movie was announced.

* A few years after the British version of the Creator/ChannelFour comedy show ''Series/BallsOfSteel'' was canned, an Australian version premiered in 2011 for The Comedy Channel. While one could consider it a ForeignRemake (as it does add some localized acts to the mix), a few of the more prominent recurring acts from the British version (particularly Olivia Lee and Neg Dupree) participated as well, meaning that it could considered to be a de facto continuation of the British version.



* Creator/{{CNN}} had the show ''Crossfire'', which was a "nuanced debate show" where two pundits would sit apart from a guest and go off on them near-relentlessly. Then [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFQFB5YpDZE was on]] [[Awesome/TheDailyShow and left the show a smoldering ruin, utterly broken down for the vapidness that it was]]. The show would be canceled within weeks. And it was announced it was coming back in late 2013...[[BigNo much to Jon's chagrin]]. Luckily for him however the revival didn't take off, and the show was cancelled again less than a year later.



* ''Series/ReadingRainbow'' is a triumphant example of this trope, up there with WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} and WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy. Commissions for new episodes of the show stopped in 2006, and in 2009 PBS pulled the funding and broadcast completely, and a day just before the Emmy for which the show won no less. Showrunner Creator/LeVarBurton, however, won't take no for an answer and immediately seeked out to buy the rights to the name and past episodes, and seeing the potential of tablet computers, started a project to put videos and books featured on the show on the iPad. The project was met with critical acclaim when it launched in 2012, and requests started pouring in for the app to be ported to other platforms, resulting in a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project further and hitting an astonishing record of US$6.5 million, the highest funded project at the time, at the end of the campaign. The app has now been ported to Android and it's derivatives, and there is also a version accessible from web browsers, with support for more platforms coming soon. And the additional money is used to fund access to the app for underfunded classrooms in the US. Additionally, new segments are now being shot for the app and for the youtube channel. It's a glorious comeback for the franchise, and for [=LeVar=].
