^^ I agree. Sturgeon's Law makes its point, but obviously doesn't stand up to scrutiny.
Continuations have built-in expectations, too.
Well, that's a good point. But I think, also, that continuations are generally more wanted than remakes or reboots.

But those were more like re-adaptations of literary works.
