Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })That rarest of all television phenomena. A show that has been condemned to the fiery pits of cancellation is resurrected by the same executives who sought to destroy it... or different executives who want to right the wrongs of the previous ones.
Most times, this means a show is picked up by a cable channel or other network and put back into production. Very rarely, a show will be resurrected by the same network.
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, miniseries or new season may be ordered to Wrap It Up.
More common is creating a Revival or Series Franchise.
If the show got enough of a notice to have a Grand Finale, being Un-Canceled transforms it into a Series Fauxnale, followed by Postscript Season.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })If a show is not actually canceled, but comes close before a last-minute renewal or a marginal decision to renew, that goes on Only Barely Renewed.
But if the show only got revived only for the ratings and most of the cast is not in the show, or there's too much change in budget and qualities, the revived show could go to a case of Seasonal Rot. If the show revival is made because the creators do care for the show, it can be better than the show in its pre-revival.

A variant. Adventure Time was abruptly cancelled halfway during the production of the final season, as the production staff was expecting the series to be renewed for an additional one. As such, many plans were scrapped, and the staff was forced to quickly wrap things up sooner than planned in a one-hour Grand Finale. However, the development of the HBO Max streaming service and the need for various production arms of the then newly-formed WarnerMedia led to create original content for it resulted in Cartoon Network greenlighting the ''Adventure Time: Distant Lands" miniseries just a month after the show ended.

Pyramid
In 1973, CBS canceled the first of the series, The $10,000 Pyramid, after a season. Six weeks later it was snapped up by ABC, where it ran for six years.
CBS canceled The $25,000 Pyramid in December 1987 and replaced it with a game show called Blackout. When that show tanked, $25,000 came back from April to July 1988 but only as a stop-gap measure until the revival of Family Feud was ready.

Noddy's Toyland Adventures initally ended with the 39th episode "Noddy The Dancer" note  a Christmas Episode aired the day after that one, though it wasn't counted as part of the inital lineup. However, the show was uncancelled five years later after the popularity of The Noddy Shop, which aired the shorts from this series in the United States, causing thirteen new episodes to be produced specifically for the second season of the show. But even that wasn't enough to fufill the demand, as there were 25 episodes in Noddy Shop's second season, resulting in 11 earlier Toyland Adventures episodes being reused and one episode to not feature such a segment.

The Jetsons and Jonny Quest, two Hanna-Barbera shows that ran for one season each in the 1960s, were both revived with new episodes produced for syndication in the 1980s. Boomerang did not show these episodes as often; the consensus is that they are of much lower quality than the original runs.
Teletoon Retro in Canada does air the 1980s Jetsons (as well as the originals), and the difference in quality is very evident.
H-B did the same with Yogi Bear in 1988, using the background music from the original 1961 shorts and introducing a new character, Ranger Rubideux.

Batman (1966) technically subverts the trope. The series was cancelled in 1968 by ABC and picked up by NBC a few days later for the fall. Unfortunately someone destroyed all the sets (over 200K in 1968 money) and NBC voided the deal.

The series not only got four made-for-DVD movies years after its original Fox run was over (which were made possible in part by the impressive ratings the reruns pulled in on Adult Swim), but got renewed in 2009 on Comedy Central — then it ended in 2013. While the final episode (in which Fry and Leela finally get married) has the feel that the show's over and it's never coming back (save for some cheap mentions on The Simpsons, which doesn't seem like it will end anytime soon), Matt Groening is trying to shop it around to other networks. It's then played for hilarity in the opener of "Bender's Big Score".

The possibility of a new Marvel vs. Capcom being made was considered nil because Capcom no longer had the license to make the games. Then in 2009 they got a deal to re-release Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes for download (minus the in-game shop, instead having everything unlocked at the outset, which was Completely Missing the Point) and, about a year later, they announced Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The Devil's heating bill must be off the charts.

The Mega Man (Classic) series. Its last numbered installment was Mega Man 8 (which came out in 1996/1997). Not counting Mega Man & Bass (a 2003 Game Boy Advance port of a 1998 Japan-only Super Famicom and WonderSwan game), it took over a decade for Keiji Inafune to bring a ninth entry to the series, which was presented as an homage to the golden days of gaming. It was followed two years later in 2010 by 10.
After 10, the series died again, with all games in the works being shut down. Cue massive shocks all over after it was uncancelled a second time in 2018, with 11.

However, at the eleventh hour, literally on the final day the cast's contracts were due to expire, Yahoo!

Sledge Hammer! was canceled after the 1st season, only to be renewed for a second season after the last episode got higher than expected ratings, which created something of a dilemma for the writers. Expecting to be cancelled after the first season, the season finale featured Los Angeles as well as the titular character being vaporized by an nuclear bomb. They got around this by claiming at the start of the second season that the first-season finale was five years in the future, giving themselves room to run the series for another five seasons. Naturally, the show was canceled soon thereafter.

Arrested Development was canceled in 2006 after three seasons, ending on a massive cliffhanger. For the next few years a movie was reported to be in development but never came to pass, though Netflix picked up the series for a fourth season which debuted in 2013. A fifth season aired in 2018 and 2019. No news about a sixth season has come up, however, with the cast being a little too busy, Portia di Rossi's retirement from acting, and Jeffrey Tambor's... er... you know, it seems very unlikely.

Max and Ruby stopped making episodes in 2007 and got cancelled that same year, but the show later returned to making new episodes starting in 2009 and with a few new voice actors. The show later ended in 2013, only to get un-canceled again in 2016.

A&E suspended Dog the Bounty Hunter several times due to incidents involving the Chapmans, but always mad it back on the air with new seasons due to fan outcry and closed-door negotiations. It finally ended its run in 2012, though CMT then picked up a new version for 2013 in which Dog travels around fixing up failing bail bond agencies in a style similar to Kitchen Nightmares.

Power Rangers Contrary to popular belief it only happened once, when Disney officially canceled it after RPM and Saban brought it back under Saban Brands.

King of the Hill was going to be cancelled after Season 11. That season's finale, "Lucky's Wedding Suit" was explicitly written as a series finale with cameos by various recurring characters. However, fan outcry led Fox to renew it at the last second, and the show ran for another two seasons.

The Game (2006), after two years worth of outcry and a move to BET. It's proven to be one of the most successful examples of this trope. Not only did the show's re-runs on BET get better ratings than the CW's first airings, the season 4 premier got 7.7 million viewers, which was a first for a serialized drama/comedy on cable. All the more impressive, considering what network The Game came from (CW) and where it went (BET).

Then in 2009, the producers announced a new season and even released a trailer for it. However, half a year later, it was revealed to be a case of Real Trailer, Fake Movie, and the third season of RSGS's Spiritual Successor started publishing instead.

FOX cancelled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons, then got revived by NBC near-immediately. The show was cancelled on May 10, 2018 to massive fan outcry, including many celebrities with no affiliation with the show such as Lin-Manuel Miranda, Guillermo Del Toro, Michael McKean, and Mark Hamill. After Netflix and Hulu turned the show down, NBC (the network that produces Brooklyn Nine-Nine and that aired all the other shows created by Mike Schur at the time) announced the day after that it had picked up the show for a sixth season.

In a rare video game example see Golden Sun. Originally one game split in two (released in 2001 and 2003, respectively) due to length, it received acclaim and developed quite the following, and even though the second game technically wrapped the story up, many believed there was enough loose threads to make a sequel. According to Word of God, the first two games were just the prequel games. Dark Dawn starts the series proper.

The Twilight Zone (1959) was initially canceled after its third season. The show meant to replace it in the CBS lineup didn't last, and the show was brought back for a shorter season of hour-long episodes. Rod Serling had taken a college teaching position by this time, which is why he doesn't appear on the same set as the actors during season four. Ratings were good enough to justify a fifth season, which brought the running time back to half an hour.

Liaden Universe: The first three books of the Liaden series did not sell well enough for the original publisher to want to commission sequels. Disappointed, the authors got day jobs and went on with their lives for the next several years while, unbeknownst to them, a significant Liad fandom was growing on the Internet (to the point where "When will the next Liaden book come out?" was a question in the SF fandom newsgroup's FAQ). When the Internet arrived in Lee & Miller's neck of Maine, they were startled to find that not only were fans clamoring for the next book, but the title of it, Plan B, had already been decided for them. With this fandom behind them, Lee & Miller were able to find a publisher to continue the series, and cranked out seven more books (as well as two collections of the short stories they continue to self-publish in chapbook form every year). Then the series was uncanceled again when Baen picked it up after that other publisher, Meisha Merlin, went out of business. Four more books were added to the series (though two of them had already been written as fan-funded draft manuscripts), then other sequels and prequels were contracted. To the fans' delight, the series now shows no signs of stopping.

A Kind of Magic originally ran from 2006 to 2009 with one season, and then presumably ended. A second season was suddenly announced, but it was postponed for the longest time until February 2018, when the show came back with 52 episodes (which the first season only had half of). There doesn't seem to be any sign of a third season, possibly leading to the show's re-cancellation.

And then it struck daytime again. Pat Sajak left daytime in January 1989 to host a talk show for CBS, and while the out-of-his-element Rolf Benirschke did the last six months of that run, NBC and Griffin simply could not come to a license agreement due to The Price Is Right adding viewers while Wheel remained steady. NBC announced the show's end in mid-May, only for CBS to renew it the next day. After NBC's last show on June 30, the show took a two week hiatus before premiering on CBS July 17; Bob Goen was chosen as the new host on July 7. The show's subsequent ratings never approached that of the NBC era, even after hopping back there in January 1991, and it was cancelled September of that year.

Largely unaware to western audiences, the Glory of Heracles series was popular in Japan, with its fourth game last made in 1994. The series then gained a 5th chapter in 2008 (2010 to western markets, and also the only one localized outside of Japan). One advantage of the series is that the games are largely self-contained, with minimal continuity spanning the various games.

In 1999, Red Dwarf ended on a cliffhanger. Co-creator and head writer Doug Naylor attempted for some time to get a movie off the ground, but in 2001 approached the BBC about to make a new series and the BBC replied with the comment "we are no longer interested in the audience Red Dwarf used to provide". The show eventually returned on cable channel Dave in 2009 with a 3-part adventure and was a massive ratings success for the channel, even beating the original channel that Red Dwarf used to air on in the rating (BBC2), a bout of hilarious irony on the BBC. A new series was been announced and aired in Autumn 2012.

Rescue Heroes aired for one season on CBS then was unceremoniously canceled when CBS opted not to renew their programming deal with studio Nelvana. It was much more successful on Teletoon, the show's Canadian channel (and technically the home network for the series), and Teletoon wanted another season. Kids' WB! picked the series up a year later for two more seasons, and gave the show major changes, such as delving into Darker and Edgier situations and some character redesigns.

The Nostalgia Critic was retired in September 2012, after both a final episode and a Fully Absorbed Finale in To Boldly Flee, as his actor thought the character had ran its course. In January 2013, his return was announced with The Review Must Go On, with the catalyst being a somewhat obscure movie. Walker also announced a few changes (in-character); namely, that the length of time between episodes would increase, and that there was no longer a "cutoff date" for what movies the Critic would review (he previously only reviewed material from the 1980's and 1990's, although he later did a few movies from the early 2000's as well). The show also started having more sketches, with the actors who worked on the show Walker did in his break from the Critic.

Due to already having their hands full with then-upcoming titles DeathSpank and Swarm, Hothead Games was forced to cancel the third and final episode of Penny Arcade Adventures, leaving it as a written story on the Penny Arcade website. Then, in August 2011, Zeboyd Games (creators of Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World) announced that they have taken up the mantle, and they're even going to make a fourth episode too, which will show us how the Precipice universe ties in with the standard Penny Arcade universe.

When the remaining members still wanted to continue he took them to court. Finally, in 1987 an agreement was made that allowed Gilmour and Mason to continue using the name: Pink Floyd was uncanceled.

Roswell has both cases. It was -apparently- first canceled by the WB on the first season, which promoted the fans to launch a "Tabasco" campaign, in which they managed to send 6,000 bottles of Tabasco to the executives. On the second season, the show was canceled again, even if the fans did send 12,000 Tabasco bottles. UPN picked it up for a third season, after which it was canceled for good.

Showtime canceled Stargate SG-1 after the fifth season, and was then picked up by Sci-Fi. And was canceled again after the tenth season, with the fanbase split between those who wanted it to continue and those who wanted it to happen two seasons earlier. MGM decided to just go direct-to-DVD this time around.

Manhunter was originally slated to be canceled after issue #25, but fan demand convinced DC to continue for 5 more issues. After those five, it was canceled again until fan demand convinced DC to give Manhunter another chance. Then it became a backup Feature for Batman Streets of Gotham. The backup feature was cancelled after only a year.

One of the shortest uncancellation cycles on record belongs to America's Most Wanted. In 1996, Fox canceled the series even though it was still one of the fledgling network's highest-rated shows, as Fox attempted to establish a Saturday night comedy block to take advantage of NBC's dwindling dominance of the evening. After then-FBI director Louis Freeh, police departments across the country, the governors of 37 states and more than 200,000 letter-writers complained about the decision, Fox hastily reinstated the series, and it suffered only a six-week hiatus. It also kind of helped that the new sitcoms bombed badly and that Fox realized Married... with Children and Martin should have never been moved to Saturday night in the first place. In 2011, the show was reduced to a series of quarterly specials on Fox, as well as regular showings on Lifetime TV, but it chugged along until 2013.

R.L. Stine's Goosebumps wrapped up its original run in 1997, with the Goosebumps 2000 spin-off lasting through 2000. In 2008 Stine brought the series back as Goosebumps Horrorland, recapturing much of the original series' success and lasting until 2012. The franchise has since evolved into Goosebumps Most Wanted, which as of this writing is still going strong.

Maison Ikkoku's dub was canceled by Viz after 36 episodes due to poor VHS sales, and the subtitled version was similarly canceled after 64 episodes. Viz released the show to billingual DVD after Inuyasha's success (both shows were created by Rumiko Takahashi), continuing the dub/subtitles from where they left off, and miraculously finished all 96 episodes. However, most of the dub cast was replaced for the newer episodes, and the sales were still low, so the final DVD boxset was a RightStuf.com exclusive.

KaBlam! was going to end with three seasons, wrapping season three up with June giving Henry a kiss, and them becoming an official couple. Fans made noise, and a fourth season was created (to the annoyance of some fans, Henry and June's relationship was set back to being "just friends" (for a little while)). A fifth season was on the way, but Nick cancelled it before it began.

Both Iceman and Unstoppable Wasp were two of the many titles released and cancelled around the time of the Marvel NOW! (2016) initiative. Both titles were created with the main drive of essentially trying to pander to minorities or those who didn't really read comics (Iceman had been revealed as gay and Nadia Pym was a Legacy Character seemingly replacing a perfectly good character). While the titles themselves seemed to not find any readers, strong trade paperback sales saw Marvel decide to resurrect both titles — Iceman as a mini-series this time — and see them both a lot more beloved.

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.

Comedy Central canceled Mystery Science Theater 3000 after a seven-year run, the show was then shopped around. Fans lobbied to other networks to bring the show back, even to the extent of buying a full-page ad in Variety bemoaning the loss. It was eventually picked up by the Sci-Fi Channel. Three years later, it was canceled again, though it has two Spiritual Successors: Cinematic Titanic and Rifftrax. In 2015, a successful Kickstarter campaign raised $5.7 million (far more than the $2 million goal) to bring back the series for an eleventh season, which premiered in April 2016. A twelfth season arrived in November 2018.

Three years after HIT Entertainment bought the rights to the series, it was revived for two additional seasons before being canceled again in 2006. 11 years later, Mattel (current owners of HIT Entertainment) contracted Japan-based Polygon Pictures to produce another revival, Pingu in the City.

Star Trek: The Original Series is perhaps the most famous example of this trope, even though technically it was not actually cancelled. The story goes that, as the end of the second season approached, the producers caught wind that NBC was considering cancelling the series and reached out to the sci-fi fan community, generating hundreds of thousands (Wikipedia says a million) pieces of mail in support, leading to NBC announcing on-air the show's renewal for one final season.

I Am Not a Serial Killer is not only a rare literature example, but one in which it was "renewed" years after initially ending. Dan repeatedly insisted that he was satisfied with John's story being over after the first trilogy, but eventually realized that there was more to tell and pitched The Devil's Only Friend to his publisher. In another twist to the usual, the followup was almost universally positively received by fans.

Futurama:
The series not only got four made-for-DVD movies years after its original Fox run was over (which were made possible in part by the impressive ratings the reruns pulled in on Adult Swim), but got renewed in 2009 on Comedy Central — then it ended in 2013. While the final episode (in which Fry and Leela finally get married) has the feel that the show's over and it's never coming back (save for some cheap mentions on The Simpsons, which doesn't seem like it will end anytime soon), Matt Groening is trying to shop it around to other networks. It's then played for hilarity in the opener of "Bender's Big Score".
And even before all 26 episodes had aired, the show was renewed for another new season. The tagline from the first DVD movie fits the series in more ways than one. The opening Subtitle even lampshades it by saying IT JUST WON'T STAY DEAD! (As pictured above)

Cagney & Lacey was canceled by CBS in 1983, after two seasons. A letter-writing campaign persuaded the network to bring the show back; four more full seasons aired, plus four (!) Made For TV Movies in the mid-1990s. Thus, unlike many of the shows on this list, its post-uncancelation run was much longer than its pre-cancellation run.

X-Men, the comic book series, was canceled after seven years of horrible sales and no popularity (it was revived nine months later, but only published reprints of earlier issues). It was basically seen as a poor-man's version of the Fantastic Four. Then it was rebooted with all new characters like Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus, along with minor Hulk villain Wolverine. Under the skilled writing of Chris Claremont, it became Marvel's flagship title throughout the '80s and '90s.

After three seasons Fox decided to cancel Lucifer (2016). This led to major outrage, especially as the third season finale left off on a cliffhanger created specifically to get a renewal.

Due South, multiple times. The show was originally cancelled by CBS after its first season. It was then renewed, and "Letting Go" was filmed to keep the fans from wondering what happened after the finale. It was cancelled again at the end of Season 2, with the production company going as far as taking down the sets. A group of Canadian production companies banded together to fund the show, and it returned for two more seasons. Callum Keith Rennie also replaced David Marciano as Ray Vecchio (because Marciano had already moved his family after the apparent cancellation and didn't want to move back).

The Fairly OddParents was cancelled and renewed four times over the course of its ten season run, as a result of it not getting ratings as high as 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.

Reading Rainbow is a triumphant example of this trope, up there with Futurama and Family Guy. 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 LeVar Burton, however, won't take no for an answer and immediately sought 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 its 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.

Wheel of Fortune
Incredibly, this happened in its early days on NBC daytime. NBC president and CEO Fred Silverman made two attempts to cancel the show in 1980. The first was to make room for a failed talk show hosted by David Letterman, but was never followed through; the second was to make room for a spinoff of Another World called Texas and was actually followed through to the point that several staff members (including announcer Charlie O'Donnell) left and a series finale was taped. Thankfully however, Silverman was later ousted due to green lighting one too many programming failures on NBC's prime time lineup (and for almost bankrupting the network after spending a ton of money to produce a whopping 150 hours of coverage for the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics, only to end up cancelling said programming after President Jimmy Carter pulled the U.S. team out of the event in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan). His replacement, Grant Tinker, reversed the cancellation decision, cutting Letterman's show to an hour, and the show managed to progress unharmed. Amusingly, Tinker previously worked at NBC as a network assistant during the mid-1960's, and, in fact, had convinced Mort Werner, NBC's then senior vice president for programming and talent, to green light Wheel creator Merv Griffin's other most well known creation, Jeopardy! Wheel would only gain in popularity come the 1980s, especially once Pat Sajak and Vanna White took over and the (still running) nighttime syndicated version began in 1983.
And then it struck daytime again. Pat Sajak left daytime in January 1989 to host a talk show for CBS, and while the out-of-his-element Rolf Benirschke did the last six months of that run, NBC and Griffin simply could not come to a license agreement due to The Price Is Right adding viewers while Wheel remained steady. NBC announced the show's end in mid-May, only for CBS to renew it the next day. After NBC's last show on June 30, the show took a two week hiatus before premiering on CBS July 17; Bob Goen was chosen as the new host on July 7. The show's subsequent ratings never approached that of the NBC era, even after hopping back there in January 1991, and it was cancelled September of that year.

CBS ended Beakman's World after getting 65 episodes in the can (the standard number of episodes needed before a series could go into syndication back then). An outpouring of fan support convinced them to give it one more season. The comeback was so late it resulted in an assistant change.

The original Match Game (1962-69) was on NBC's chopping block after 13 weeks, until writer Dick DeBartolo suggested to Mark Goodson that they spice up some of the questions. He approved (given they were already cancelled), viewers picked up on it, and NBC spared it.

The cancellation of Jericho in 2007 lead to a strange campaign where fans sent nuts to the network to persuade it to reverse the decision. The network eventually announced a further seven episodes would be produced and "please stop sending us nuts". The nuts were later given to charity. Or used as part of a contest on Big Brother.

For several years, the idea of bringing back Invader Zim was thrown around at Nickelodeon due to its continued popularity in reruns, but never fully stuck because no agreement could be made on how to budget the project (the high financial cost of the show was a major reason for its original cancellation). The property would eventually see a comic book continuation that started in 2015, followed by a television movie a few years later.

Young Justice was canceled after its second season ended in early 2013, with the final tag blatantly confirming the oft-hinted-at alliance between Darkseid and The Light. note While fans called this a cliffhanger, it wasn't; it simply confirmed a common theory, but no fates were left hanging and the plot was resolved. Despite a passionate campaign from fans, Cartoon Network wasn't swayed. On November 7th, 2016, it has officially been resurrected and a third season began airing on DC Universe in January 2019, with a fourth season confirmed to be in production.

Warhammer 40,000 managed to crank even this trope (like every other trope it involves) Up to Eleven: the Dark Heresy spinoff game was released, canceled and Un-Canceled within the space of a month. The game, which fans had been looking forward to for decades, comes out. The entire print run sells out in two days. A few days after that, Games Workshop says it's getting out of roleplaying games because literature is easier to publish for profit. Once the gnashing of teeth ties down, Fantasy Flight Games picks up the license. This had the secondary effect of visiting Laser-Guided Karma upon the profiteers who had, on announcement of the cancellation, bought up every copy they could in the hope of selling them for silly money on eBay. This also had something of a longer-term effect, where several veteran designers and writers at Games Workshop left the company in the late oughts, only to contribute to Fantasy Flight Games, who currently publish all of the Games Workshop-licensed Tabletop RPGs. This then happened again in 2017, when Fantasy Flight lost the license; the books were simply re-listed under the new publisher and put back on sale in digital format.

Duke Nukem Forever. After years and years of basically being Vaporware (indeed, it was considered the poster child of vaporware; Wired magazine's "Vaporware Awards" at one point retired it from consideration just so it would be possible for other titles to win), it was then canceled...only to be picked back up by Gearbox a few months later. And then it finally got released. There's a lesson here. And it is this: Always, ALWAYS bet on Duke.

By 1985, British sci-fi institution Doctor Who had weathered Moral Guardians, inflation, and lackluster scripts... but when a new BBC controller who had never liked the show came in, its number was up, with the series being cancelled at the end of its 22nd season in 1985. The resultant outcry made the newspapers and talk shows (and even spawned a "We Are the World"-style charity record that has become an Old Shame for all involved), and 18 months later, it returned; unfortunately, the ratings started to slip after it was put in a time slot against popular Soap Opera Coronation Street, and in 1989, it was cancelled once again. A failed pilot TV movie in 1996 notwithstanding, it wouldn't return as an ongoing TV series until 2005. It has since become one of the most successful works of fiction on British television.

In 1989, as part of its attempt to revive NBC's old Mystery Movie lineup ABC had new seasons of both Columbo and Kojak commissioned 11 years after they both ended in 1978. Although Kojak would only last one season, Columbo's revival managed to be successful enough to last a few more seasons and even after that continue with a near-yearly series of television movies all the way to 2003.

And then it was cancelled again in June 2018, leading to more fan outcry. A month later, NBC caved again, but only partly — while the show wasn't given another season, it was given a two-hour TV movie to serve as a Grand Finale, thereby keeping the series from ending on a massive cliffhanger.

Dragon Ball Z Kai received this treatment as well thanks to the U.S. market. Despite good ratings, the lack of revenue in the merchandise caused it to be cancelled at the end of Cell Saga, meaning the Buu arc was left unadapted. However, the series proved to be so popular on Nicktoons TV and Toonzai that it led to the Buu Saga being commissioned a year and a half later.

Ed, Edd n Eddy was originally going to end after 52 episodes, with the episode Take This Ed and Shove It. Its continued popularity led to Cartoon Network ordering three holiday specials and two addition seasons, before the creator decided to scrap that final season early in production in lieu of a television movie. As such, the season five finale "Fistful of Ed" was marketed as the final episode, while the two Season 6 episodes that were too far along to scrap aired as "lost episodes" the following year. The series ended a year after that with the airing of Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show.

Ripper Street was cancelled after two series, a lot in part because it was so expensive to make. Then Amazon stepped in with extra funding, and its third season debuted on Amazon Prime in the UK in 2014. Amazon then announced in May of 2015 that is going to produce two additional seasons.

Sailor Moon's original run in the US was cut short after only 65 episodes in its original syndicated run. After leaving syndication, it re-surfaced on USA Network, where it was once again, cancelled after failing to find an audience. However, once the show ended up on Toonami, it finally garnered itself an audience, which resulted in the show being continued with more episodes.

South Park. Both Comedy Central and creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were uncertain that the show would even draw mediocre ratings, let alone become a massive cultural phenomenon, so only six episodes were ordered. Parker and Stone put the bulk of their attention elsewhere with films such as BASEketball, but once South Park unexpectedly became Comedy Central's highest rated show and a hit among pretty much everybody from high schoolers to big name celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld, everyone scrambled to quickly create four holiday-themed episodes ("Pink Eye", "Starvin' Marvin", "Damien"note which was originally supposed to be the show's Christmas episode and "Mr. Hankey, The Christmas Poo") to tide fans over, followed by three more episodes to round out Season 1 and establish South Park as a full-fledged series.

Pikmin was remade on Wii, with the remakes coming out in 2008 in Japan and 2009 in the rest of the world. Pikmin 2 was planned to get the same treatment, and the remake for it came out in Japan, Australia, and Europe in spring of 2009, with the American version never getting a release other than vague hints like "Q2". It was quietly cancelled. In 2012, the American version was surprisingly uncanceled and released that June - just over three years after the Australian re-release hit store shelves (and even then, it was released under the Nintendo Selects label... which is usually only used for budget re-releases).

Unforgettable is the rare example of a show that did well in the ratings, but not well enough for CBS's ratings standards. It was killed at the end of its first season, but was renewed for a summer run on CBS for its second season because of TNT and Lifetime looking to snap it up. It did well enough as a summer show that it was renewed for a third season. After the third season, it was canceled again, only to be revived by A&E for a fourth season.

Dragon Warrior went on a very extended hiatus in North America after Dragon Warrior IV was released in 1992. Enix apparently had intentions to localize one of the next two games on the SNES, but these efforts died when they closed their American branch in the mid 1990s. The series was resurrected eight years later when Enix brought over a Game Boy Color compilation of the first two Dragon Quest games, but the release of Dragon Quest VII the year after really cemented the uncancellation of the series in America. Then plans for bringing the Dragon Quest IV remake to the U.S. were scrapped when the original development studio shut down. It took seven years and the Square-Enix merger before the U.S. finally saw the PS1 version's bonus content on the DS.

The Massive Multi-Fandom RPG: Season 3 of the roleplay ended abruptly once the GMs began experiencing burnout, and all seemed to indicate that this was the end of the story, especially since the GMs began to consider all of the roleplay one huge pile of Old Shame. A couple of months later, however, season 3.5 was started again as an attempt to conclude the story, with a different, simpler premise that doesn't demand as much from the players. (And then it fizzled out as well, unfortunately.)

The anime adaptation of Durarara!! had a fairly satisfying ending, but still had some unresolved plot threads, and only managed to adapt the first three novels of the series. After finishing in 2010, a second season was finally announced in 2014 that would be divided into three parts. The first part aired in January 2015, the second part aired in July 2015, and the third part aired in January 2016.

Family Guy is most likely the Trope Codifier, as uncancellations have become more common since it was uncancelled for the first time. Brought back by FOX after a long hiatus once DVD sales took off and reruns on [adult swim] 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 South Park. What's especially notable here is how in the returning series premiere, Peter recited 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 Family Guy). Ironically, since its uncancellation, FOX has absolutely refused to cancel it again, despite fans saying 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 Seth MacFarlane himself has said he wants Family Guy to end already, but FOX won't let him.

Several days after Jodie Troutman announced that she was pulling the plug on Lit Brick, a ton of fans came out of the wood work to bemoan the loss, convincing her to do regular updates again. Amusingly, this came after she took the trouble to draw comics detailing what happened to nearly every main character in the series, and finished with an epic goodbye to her readers.

This actually happened to the English dub of Dragon Ball Z back in the late 1990s. After two seasons worth of 67 episodes in its first run, the show was cancelled in 1998 due its failure of gaining a substantial audience. When the episodes started to air on Toonami, it got much more popularity, and Funimation started dubbing new episodes in 1999.
Dragon Ball Z Kai received this treatment as well thanks to the U.S. market. Despite good ratings, the lack of revenue in the merchandise caused it to be cancelled at the end of Cell Saga, meaning the Buu arc was left unadapted. However, the series proved to be so popular on Nicktoons TV and Toonzai that it led to the Buu Saga being commissioned a year and a half later.

The original Sherlock Holmes stories were immensely popular, but Arthur Conan Doyle was sick of writing them, so he killed Holmes off. After huge fan outcry, the publishers asked Doyle to write more. In response, Doyle named what he believed to be an impossibly large fee. The publishers paid it, and Doyle wrote more Holmes stories.

MOTHER was stated to be released in North America, but due to the NES being at the end of its life cycle, and the SNES taking off in popularity, Nintendo canceled the English release after it was finished.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines released in November 2004 (a terrible time to be a new game on the market) after an infamously Troubled Production and utterly bombed due to stiff competition alongside being pushed out the door too quickly for a Christmas release. But its dedicated fan community and status as a cult masterpiece (along with brisk, continuous sales numbers for a game that couldn't even be beaten in its original state at release) has seen it receive a sequel, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, slated for release in 2020, the better part of two decades later.

Dexter's Laboratory lasted two seasons until 1998, and three years later returned. But the two seasons that followed are often hated because they lacked input from series creator Genndy Tartakovsky (who was busy with Samurai Jack and Star Wars: Clone Wars), had a change in artwork, had different writers, and had replacement voice actors (especially with Dexter. Christine Cavanaugh retired from voice acting after a custody battle with her husband and Candi Milo was called in as her replacement).

Anthony Horowitz intended the ninth Alex Rider book, Scorpia Rising (2011), to be the series' Grand Finale (barring a prequel focusing on the character of Yassen Gregorovich). However, a few years later he was working on a collection of previously published short stories set in the series' universe, and found he missed writing for the characters so much he decided to revive it with a new entry, Never Say Die, which was released in 2017. Another new book, Nightshade, is scheduled for 2020, with Horowitz expecting there to be at least one more after that.
