Robert Guillaume, the Emmy Award-winning actor best known for playing Benson DuBois in the groundbreaking TV series Soap and its spin-off Benson, has died at the age of 89.

Benson was one of the most successful spin-offs in TV history. In honor of Guillame’s life and career, let’s look back at ten of the most Iconic TV spin-offs of all time.



The Soap spin-off lasted seven seasons and netted Guillaume an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. (His other Emmy win came from his stint on Soap.)


Frasier had a tough act to follow being a spin-off of Cheers, but it lasted 11 seasons and won a staggering 37 Emmys overall.
