    Default Favorite follow up series

    When an actor/actress gets famous for playing a character in a series, then shows up later in another series (that’s not a spinoff w. him/her as the same character) and nails it again, getting to play someone else.

    I’ve been watching and enjoying Nash Bridges and i personally prefer Don Johnson’s character in that to Sonny Crockett. The show, while being dated, has def. aged better than Miami Vice, and the cast chemistry’s superior. I think Bridges actually outlasted Vice by one season but I’m not sure.

    So I’ve heard.
    As much tv as I watched growing up, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis never aired for me to even know about. I found out about the show decades after being a Gillian fan when the internet came along!

    Not sure if it should count, but Lorne Greene was on Bonanza for about 14 years, then moved on to play Adama on the original Battlestar Galactica a few years later.

    Man these are pretty great. I’d forgotten a lot of those!

    I thought of one last night.
    Betty White as Rose on The Golden Girls and Elka on Hot in Cleveland.
    That show was also a follow up for Valerie Bertinelli who was known for One Day at A Time, and Jane Leeves who was known for Frasier.
