First there was a tv show: Kees van der Spek: Ontmaskert [1]
After that, there was a tv show Kees van der Spek: Oplichters Aangepakt [2]

It's basically the same show, but the name changed (I presume because the first name is open to interpretation to people who don't understand Dutch spelling)

Because of the name change, these were considered separate shows. But now someone added the episodes for series [2] to series [1] and we end up with duplicate episodes. Also the name was changed of series [1], so no one will be able to search for the original name anymore.

My suggestion:

Change name of series [1] back to Kees van der Spek: Ontmaskert and remove season 2 and 3. Then lock it, because there won't be any new seasons for this show.

Thanks in advance :-)

This is exactly what I was about to post, but I see you already did. 👍🏻 I agree with your suggestion!

This seems like a textbook continuation under a new name, which should be possible to handle through named seasons, unless that policy was revised in my lengthy absence.

At any rate, request changes should be filed as new tickets here, to increase visibility:

Thank you!
