** The 14th season finale, "Conundrum," also was billed as the series' finale of the original CBS version. However, the episode itself was not unlike the other season finales. Here, J.R. fears he has lost his empire and everyone that means everything to him, and contemplating suicide, is visited by an angel(?), who, in a ''ItsAWonderfulLife''-type dream, shows him how others would have fared without him. In the end, J.R. trains the gun at his head; Bobby, concerned for J.R.'s welfare, arrives at Southfork just in time to hear gunfire coming from J.R.'s bedroom, rushes to the door and says, "Oh my God!" Viewers are left to wonder whether J.R. killed himself ... a question that wouldn't be answered for another five years and the first of the reunion movies.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TotalRecall2070'': The show ends with Farve getting possibly damaged beyond repair and going into hibernation, the future of David and Olivia Hume as a couple being uncertain because of trust issues, and Calley getting contacted by Farve's creator, who has apparently survived the destruction of his body. Since the series was cancelled at this point, these dangling plot threads were never resolved.

*** Almost all of William Hartnell's stories were presented with a cliffhanger right at the end, except for season finales and one or two other exceptions, to create the impression of a single run-on adventure. This makes life notoriously awkward for ExpandedUniverse writers trying to find {{Time Skip}}s to put stories in - Peter Purves once joked that there is "one scene change in "The Gunfighters"" that holds virtually all of his Steven & Dodo audios. (Of course, at the time, there was no concern about this sort of thing.) Most Troughton stories did not do this and there is a lot more room to add material into his timeline. The practice was briefly revisited by the show in Season 12 as part of a RevisitingTheRoots approach with the new Doctor, causing similar problems fitting in adventures with the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane and Harry.

There were also a small number of later examples, notably Nyssa collapsing at the end of "Four to Doomsday", which leads into "Kinda", and the ending of "Frontios" with the TARDIS going out of control, which turns out to be due to it being accidentally caught in the Dalek time tunnel that features in "Resurrection of the Daleks".

Only "The Curse of Dracula" reached its conclusion within the 10-week run, as lack of viewer interest, poor reviews and [=ABC=]'s powerhouse ''HappyDays'' and ''LaverneAndShirley'', turned "Cliffhangers" into a show that truly left the viewer hanging after cancellation. As a postscript, the "Stop Susan Williams" and "The Secret Empire" installments were re-edited into two-hour "made-for-TV" movies for later re-airing by NBC, and included their intended conclusions.

* Played for laughs in ''Series/AngieTribeca.'' The first season finale "The One With the Bomb" ends with a WireDilemma as Angie tries to save her partner from a bomb vest. She cuts a wire as the timer counts down to zero -- and the episode ends.

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' loves to do this with regards to relationships. Almost every season finale has a break up, a hook up, or both. Season 8 is probably the top, with Amy breaking up with Sheldon and Leonard confessing a drunken hook up with a colleague, putting his engagement with Penny in jeopardy.
