Popular Shows/Movies That Came/Are Coming Back

Popular shows or movies, like other things, come to an end, and sometimes we move on.
But sometimes, they come back in triumphant return, and we celebrate.

Here's a list of popular things that came and are coming back.

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars

The most popular franchise of all time, originally ended after Revenge Of The Sith, I'm saying that because it was the latest to be made, though it took place long before Return Of The Jedi, which was supposed to be the finale.

But then in December 18, 2015, Star Wars has returned with a new movie, Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens.

It has brought Star Wars back to life to a new generation, it gave many fans nostalgia, and when the Lucasfilm logo appeared on the screen, the audience erupted, and when the theme song played, the audience erupted again, and when the movie ended, the audience erupted the final time.

This movie makes you want to scream above the top of your lungs until you lose your voice, that's what the audience in almost every theater did, they were the most explosive reactions to any movie of all time.

Unfortunately, it failed in the box office record of becoming the highest grossing movie of all time, but it did become the highest ...more - nelsonerica

2 Star Trek Star Trek is an American science-fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry that follows the adventures of the starship USSĀ Enterprise.

Star Trek is a space opera about people exploring new worlds and fighting alien creatures, the early ones had Spock on it, battleships took place, such as the Borg ships, and in one episode, which was supposedly the most violent thing until that one scene in Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens, the Xindi spacecraft destroyed Earth, killing all people on it.
Yet there were Klingons and Vulcans.
It was a world of creativity.

On July 22, 2016, J.J. Abrams will revive Star Trek with a new movie called Star Trek Beyond.
It will set Star Trek toward a new generation and keep Star Trek alive. - nelsonerica

9 Fred

I know you might not agree with this, and you might vote me down and harass me with what I'm writing here.

Fred was one of the most popular characters on YouTube, he's a character who's hyperactive and has anger management issues, he lives with parents struggling in life, his mom is drunk and his dad, John Cena, is a prisoner on death row( though he escaped Prison in his movies and show).

He had a friend named Bertha, a bully named Kevin, and a to-be-girlfriend named Judy.

He was the first to get a million views and subs, he guest starred on shows, made movies and a T.V. show, I know you guys hated him because of his annoying voice and him screaming like a child on coffee, which might make you vote this comment down, but being the first to do all those things was a remarkable feat for YouTube, and his ideas were completely original, the actor, Lucas Cruikshank, put a lot of effort into his videos.

He decided to end Fred on August 26, 2014, with the New Fred ...more - nelsonerica

13 Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.
14 Goosebumps
15 Scooby Doo

It's one of the biggest cartoon franchises of all time, a crew and a dog find monsters and solve mysteries, only to find out that the monsters are actually either people in disguises or robots.

It's repetitive, but interesting, with how each episode/movie has its own theme, but always uses the same story line as usual and ends with the same line from the bad guys to the good guys "I wouldn't have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling kids", funny but interesting.

Anyway, it's coming back with a new animated movie in 2018, hope you watch it, because Scooby Doo is back.

16 Alice In Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland is about a woman who is dreaming about following a rabbit and falling down a hole, then later having a drink that makes her shrink and food that makes her grow, and has adventures, meeting living plants, the Cheshire Cat, and the White queen and Evil Overlord.

The original movie by Disney got sequels/remakes lately, with the latest previous one in 2010, by Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, and they're making another one this year, by Tim Burton, it's keeping Alice in Wonderland alive. - nelsonerica

17 Indiana Jones

It's about these guys who are on missions to save people, but get in the way of booby traps, and try to find a way out of them.

Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo, wanted to kill him off to be in this new movie, and then retire from acting.

It is planned for a reboot on May 25, 2018. - nelsonerica
