11 Spin-Offs Where Actors Returned to Their Original Shows Like Nothing Happened

Not all spin-offs are created equal -- and while many spin-offs hit after the original series ends, some emerge during a successful show's run, like Young Sheldon bazinga-ing its way out of The Big Bang Theory. The former is already on its way to becoming a big hit, so shouldn't be facing cancellation any time soon -- but other spin-offs that ran concurrently with their parent show weren't so lucky.

Casey And Derek From Life With Derek Ship Dasey Even Harder Than You Do

Life with Derek ended seven years ago, but fans haven't stopped shipping the two lead characters, Casey MacDonald and Derek Venturi — even though they're stepsiblings.

About

Stacey Grant

"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth."

While I can't sum up my life better than Holden Caulfield can, I will tell you I'm currently the Snapchat editor for Seventeen's Discover channel. I also write articles for the company's website.

I've been an entertainment writer and reporter for TV Guide, MTV News, BuzzFeed, HTZ Apps, and Lone Star Film Society. I also regularly wrote for MTV's Snapchat Discover channel.

Moreover, I've interviewed myriad of celebs via in-person, phone, and email, and have maintained numerous connections with both talent and publicists. I've also had training with different content management systems, social media, GIF making, light coding, and Photoshop.

If you can handle more fun facts, I worked at Time Inc. as a digital media intern, coordinating with several of the brands to produce content for the company's then-partnership with the app Trivia Crack.
