* ''Series/{{Tyrant}}'': With the cancelation of the show at the end of season 3, everyone is doubtlessly worse off than where they started. After Jamal's death HistoryRepeats and despite the promise of democracy, Barry has finally become the same tyrant their father was in the name of order with an unscrupulous General backing him, his wife Molly has been wrecked by the murder of their daughter Emma by the Caliphate and become a LadyMacBeth, Leila, Fauzi, and Deliyah have all become rebels opposing the Al Fayeed's dictatorship, and the war with the Caliphate is about to (re)start while the only moderate Islamic leader has been assassinated.

*** That last one is arguably a BittersweetEnding, as Will chose to stay in Bel-Air (Carlton even asked him to come with them), and the family promises to contact each other every week. Also the entire cast has something to look forward to: Geoffrey had a first class trip back to London to reconnect with his son, Ashley is going to an elite performing arts school, Hilary is moving to New York to continue her talk show, Carlton finally goes to Princeton, Phil & Vivian move to be closer to their children, and Will is about to start his final year of college.

* ''Series/{{Accused}}'': "Willy's Story", "Frankie's Story" and "Stephen's Story" end with the title characters getting sentences that seem longer than deserved (or for Stephen, he shouldn't really have been convicted at all, given that he's insane).

** [[AlasPoorScrappy The death of Adric]] at the end of "Earthshock" is, to some, a downer ending.

** [[AlasPoorScrappy The death of Adric]] at the end of "Earthshock" is, to some, a downer ending. To make matters worse [[spoiler: he died thinking he failed to save the past, not knowing that the ship he was on was the 'asteroid' that wiped out the dinosaurs, leading to humanity's rise.]]

* This commonly happens in the realistic, cynical TeenDrama ''Renegadepress.com''. Most commonly with the victim's life going down in flames.

* On ''Series/HotelHell'', the Vienna episode ends with Gordon Ramsay revealing in voiceover that after he left, the owners reverted straight back to the old decor and the old menu. As such, the hotel continues to have a crummy reputation around town.

* Of all shows to do this, the Season 13 Finale of ''Series/TopGear'' was quite a surprise, given the show's [[StuffBlowingUp usual nature]]. Jeremy Clarkson was reviewing an Aston Martin V12 Vantage, and unlike previous supercar reviews, which usually involve POWERRRRRRRRR races against other supercars, this review simply consisted of Jeremy driving through the countryside. Cue a bit of BrianEno, and an aesop of how the time for supercars seemed destined to run out, what with the economy being in the crapper, fuel prices having gone through the roof, and continuing troubles around the world, Jeremy closed the segment by stating that a car like this felt like 'an ending'. And unlike previous show endings, which usually consist of wild studio applause segueing into the show theme with credits rolling, the credits rolled as the segment came to an end. There was much speculation if it was meant as a stealthy series finale.
