GPG key expiration and signatures

just to get clarity into this:

if i set an expiration date on my GPG key and collect n signatures for
this key, what do i have to do on the day of expiration to obtain a
valid key that's signed by the same n people, and how to i
redistribute this new key?

on debian-user, i notice people with expiration dates *and* hundreds
of signatures, and i just don't want to believe that they redo them
every single year.

my understanding is that as long as you simply renew your key, all
the signatures stay the same, but a new public key would be available
that would replace the old key on the keyserver and in peoples
keyrings. am i wrong?
