Go To

An entire series that follows on chronologically from the predecessor. Usually marked by a change in cast within the universe, while maintaining the same general rules.

Like anything having to do with TV production, this trope has a dark side. 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.
