Has there been a successful spinoff in the last 20 years? Excluding the mill show genres that lend themselves to spinoffs like reality, home & garden, police procedural, etc. Basically spinoffs that exist so they can just make more of the same mediocre thing.

I can only think of Better Call Saul. I feel like spinoffs of shows that are actually good as a concept are best left in the 70s & 80s.

It’s worth noting The Office already has two spinoffs, Parks & Rec which basically only became good when it shed 100% of its Office influence, and the horrible Rainn Wilson show that nobody remembers.
