Japan's Tora-san series consists of 48 films.

Lots of other Japanese series from the 60's - 70's:
Red Peony Gambler
Sleepy Eyes of Death
Shinobi No Mono
Stray Cat Rock
Girl Boss
Yakuza Papers
Miyamoto Musashi
...and more

Also looking back to classic Hollywood, you find a lot of B-movie detective series:
Sherlock Holmes
Mr. Moto
Charlie Chan
The Saint
The Lone Wolf
The Falcon
Boston Blackie
...and more

One from France I can think of is the 5-film Angelique series.

Also, back to the U.S. for some Johnny Weissmuller:
Tarzan
Jungle Jim

Re: how many movie sequels?

Some more horror/sci fi ones (I'm only counting franchises where at least one movie was released theatrically):

Highlander
The Howling
The Prophecy
Children of the Corn
Leprechaun
Silent Night Deadly Night
Prom Night (if you count the remake)
Ju-On (if you count the American films and/or the original Japanese tv movies)
Air Bud
