I was talking about movie reboots of old TV shows earlier today. There have been movies like Inspector Gadget, The Flinstones and Rocky and Bulwinkle. Usually, the movie shows in theaters, and if it's successful enough, there's a cheap direct-to-DVD release.
Has there ever been a movie reboot that was so successful that they restarted the TV show? I feel like that's something which theoretically could happen, but movie producers and TV producers are different people, so the odds of that happening in real life are pretty low.
I know the Tron reboot was supposed to launch a TV series and more movies, but that didn't happen.
