* ''Series/{{Sliders}}'': Some fans ignore everything after season two because there was a new head writer in Season 3, and he dumbed things (including Quinn Mallory) down. Some ignore the SciFiChannel episodes: the last {{FOX}} episode does have the feel of a reasonable ending (two of the party get home, and those still sliding chose to and are planning to have fun); the first SciFi episode, if included, lends ShootTheShaggyDog to the proceedings. Some discontinue starting from the beginning of the Kromag arc, because that is when the focus of the series started to shift from AlternateHistory to horror; without that arc, the writer change at the third season wouldn't be as serious, and the SciFiChannel wouldn't have been able to shift the mood of the show so drastically.

** The season four introduction of angels into the series, a decision that greatly altered the focus and mytharc of the show, and resulted in the character of Sam Winchester not saving his brother from Hell, has led a small, but vocal group of fans to disavow developments beyond the third season finale.

* While ''Series/{{Angel}}'' has had its share of divisive storylines, there is none that is more hated than the ''entirety'' of [[SeasonalRot Season 4]], owing to the CharacterDerailment of fan-favorite Cordelia (including throwing away her three seasons of development with [[FanPreferredCouple Angel]] for a RomanticPlotTumor with the local BaseBreaker), abundance of {{Squick}} and NauseaFuel, many character suddenly having SkewedPriorities and/or {{Wangst}}, and the entire plot requiring ''everyone'' to '''juggle''' the IdiotBall to even work in the first place. Cue most if not all fans pretending the whole thing never happened or writing FixFic.

** Much smaller in scope than an entire season or even an episode, but about half the fanbase doesn't accept notorious BaseBreaker Marcus Cole being frozen after the end of season 4, insisting he died, in spite of WordOfGod stating otherwise.

** Some fans refused to acknowledge the second half of Season 3 after the SeriesFauxnale for how much [[BaseBreaker controversial]] [[VillainSue Ze]][[BadassDecay lena]] is.

* In ''Series/TeenWolf'', some fans like to forget that Season 3 and everything after it ever happened, since that means that Jackson, Erica, and Boyd, all of whom were an EnsembleDarkhorse to some degree, are either dead or forever in London. Add that to the general BaseBreaker that is Season 3 and some of its characters (the twins Aiden and Ethan, Deucalion, Jennifer, Malia) or some plot conclusions for [[PlotHole Cora]] [[ReplacementScrappy in general]], Derek (and Cora) leaving, Allissac, among other minor ones, and you get a popular point of FanonDiscontinuity.

* Most fans of ''That70sShow'' will testify that the 8th season didn't happen. Eric never went to Africa, Hyde never married a stripper or grew a porn 'stache, {{R|eplacementScrappy}}andy never joined the gang in Point Place, and Jackie definitely never dated Fez.

*** This later actually may have been removed from canon. Paris says on screen late in the show that he's never gone Transwarp. This directly contradicts "Threshold" and [[Wild Mass Guessing can be seen as proof that episode never happened...or that he repressed the memory, didn't want to bring it back up again, or the writers goofed]].

* Most fans of ''{{Roseanne}}'' prefer not to discuss or remember the whole final season -- reasonably so, as the ''entire thing'' was revealed in the series finale to be AllJustADream.

** Many fans of the series are starting to ignore everything after the show's second season, where the character of Felicity Smoak went from being a fan favorite show to a widely-hated CreatorsPet, with Felicity taking a level in Jerkass yet always being treated as if she was in the right, while taking over the show as a SpotlightStealingSquad; eating up screentime from other characters and taking up subplots that could be used elsewhere. This has caused many viewers to only want to watch the first two seasons and then switch exclusively to spinoff series ''Series/TheFlash2014''.

** "Love and Monsters" is the most maligned episode in the revival for being an awkard cartoonish comedy [[spoiler: and ending with the protagonist's love interest living in a stab of concrete]]. For some the episode never happpened or [[UnreliableNarrator Elton's account of the events are distorted]].
