This is a list of character-based film series, in which many films are made about the same main character, who may or may not be played by different actors over the course of the series. The individual films of a film series may be produced or directed by different people over many years. In more extreme examples, the main character may be repeatedly "killed off" and brought back through fake-outs and other plot devices.
