Buzzword term

Meaning: an officially-recgonised continuaton series utilising either the some or all of the original cast of a series and/or using the same premise and/or set in the same town / country / universe as television series already (or recently) on-air. Spin-offs are usually produced by the same production company / team responsible for the originating series.

Examples:

  • "Stargate Atlantis" is a spin-off of "Stargate SG-1"
  • "Star Trek Deep Space Nine" was a spin-off of "Star Trek: The Next Generation"
  • "Star Trek Voyager" was a spin-off of "Star Ttek Deep Space Nine"
  • "Crusade" was a spin-off of "Babylon 5"

The new Battlestar Galactica is not a spin-off, but a re-imagining of the original series.
