Reboot doesn't necessarily have to mean "restart from the beginning and do it all over again", it could just mean "Start it back up again from where you left off when it went into a stand still for years"
Uhm, no, a reboot very much is not that. You just described a continuation.
Which is one of the definitions of the way the word is used today. For isntance, Doctor Who 2005 Current Series, even though it is a continuation, was referred to as a Reboot.

Yes, Reboot did start out referring to remakes only, but, it is also now used for a Continuation of a Franchise that has been dormant for a period of time (IE: A trilogy that was completed and someone comes along 5 or 10 years later and wants to do a second Trilogy continuing on from where the first one left off)

Where are we going? And why are we in this Handbasket?
