The best television spin-offs ever
Showtime just announced three new 'Dexter' spin-offs and four new 'Billions' series
Pulling off a spin-off doesn't always work out. With poor storylines and drawn-out characters, it can become a recipe for disaster. But sometimes, it really hits the spot.
Showtime is investing heavily in the value of spin-offs, announcing on February 6 that two of its long-running series are getting franchised. 'Billions' is getting four new series centered around wealth and power, and 'Dexter' is getting three spin-offs of its own.
Indeed, spin-off series, from sitcoms to dramas, have over the decades succeeded tremendously. Curious to see which shows made the list? Have a look at the gallery.
