A miniseries is a television format that tells a story in a predetermined, limited number of episodes.

Sometimes, a miniseries gathers enough followers to create a fanbase strong enough to inspire a sequel to the original miniseries.

Some miniseries, like Tin Man (Wizard of Oz), tap into already existing fandoms by offering further canon, background information or a point of view that differs from the original version.
