I honestly can't think of a single movie or tv franchise that reverted back to a previous continuity after being rebooted.
"Superman Returns" ignored "Superman III", "Supergirl" and "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" and was a sequel to "Superman II".
And, while not quite a reboot, would you count "Dallas" ignoring a whole season of post-Bobby death while "Knot's Landing" did not do a similar retraction?
Hmm. The Superman business comes close, but the Superman
series had not been rebooted by the later films. It's more like Returns
was a semi-reboot that chose to ignore the later sequels.
It's not like Superman IV
had rebooted the old Christopher Reeve continuity, which the franchise then returned to. It just got excised from the ongoing continuity!
More of a retcon than a reboot, which probably applies to "Dallas" as well.
