The New Leave It to Beaver (also known as Still the Beaver) is an American sitcom sequel to the original 1957–1963 sitcom Leave It to Beaver. The series began with the 1983 reunion television movie Still the Beaver, that aired on CBS in March 1983. The success of the television movie prompted the creation of a revival series, also titled Still the Beaver, that aired on The Disney Channel from 1984 to 1985. In 1986, the series was picked up by TBS where it aired until June 1989.

The New Leave It to Beaver is one of the rare examples of a television series revival sequel (not spin-off) that revolves around the characters from the original series. Other examples of this include The New WKRP in Cincinnati and What's Happening Now!!, as well as the sequel to Dallas and the two sequel series to The Brady Bunch.

Wally Cleaver lives next door with his wife Mary Ellen, his daughter Kelly and later, his son Kevin. Hugh Beaumont, who played Ward Cleaver in the original series, had died in 1982.
