* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'':
** In "Murdoch at the Opera", the opera company's manager observes that while the dead singer was the understudy to the star, the younger woman was unlikely to go on in the lead role of ''Theatre/LaBoheme'' because the diva would sing on her deathbed. At the end of the episode, [[spoiler: the diva, who was also the culprit, took poison and sang her final scene in the opera on a bed as she was actually dying]].
** In "Murdoch on the Corner", a seemingly crazy beggar talks to himself incessantly, and one of his early phrases is "She's the one!" It turns out the culprit is a woman, [[spoiler: an apparently kindly pastor's widow]].

* When the TV special ''[[Theatre/TheWiz The Wiz Live!]]'' opens by showing Aunt Em's farmhands at work, the dialogue foreshadows which characters from ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' their respective actors will play when Dorothy goes to Oz: Robert (David Alan Grier, the Cowardly Lion) cowers in fear at Toto, prompting John (Music/NeYo, the Tin Man) to call him a "big, ol' scaredy-cat", to which Robert retorts, "You go ahead and laugh, he can't bite through that brace on your leg."

Sticks' (Elijah Kelley, the Scarecrow) lines make him sound like the brains among the farmhands, as he suggests tearing down and rebuilding a fence that constantly needs fixing, and also becomes the first to question Dorothy's plans to run away back to her birthplace.

* In ''Series/ServantOfThePeople'', one of Vasiliy's favorite phrases that he uses to get attention in crowded and noisy places is "[[spoiler:Putin has been overthrown!]]". Come the first season finale, [[spoiler:he receives a phone call from the newly elected President of Russia, and is shocked to learn who they are]].

* In ''Series/NightAndDay'', this often takes the form of spooky or otherwise supernatural episodes. Premonitive consultations with psychics abound, as do individual character visions – for example, while in the catacombs, Josh has a vision of a man with a gloved hand passing a black chrysanthemum to a girl. 'The Black Chrysanthemum' later turns out to be the name of the club where Jane is alive and working as a geisha. (Holly also appears to have an unexplained vision of Jane as a geisha.) Also, an [[WhatIf ‘alternative reality’]] episode around halfway through the series explores what might have happened if Sam Armstrong and Jane had married – and many of the events that occur in this episode eventually come to pass in the show’s real timeline.

* ''{{Smallville}}'' has allusions to the classic Superman almost as often as spoken dialogue, many of which may count as foreshadowing, although it is more or less a ForegoneConclusion. The Smallville wiki has a list of how many times they do this. [[http://smallville.wikia.com/wiki/Allusions_to_the_Superman_Universe Right here.]]

* ''{{Numb3rs}}''. In the episode "Dark Matter", Colby gave a detailed explanation of technology used in school ID tags to track students. Everyone else stared at him and he explained that he read it in a magazine. At the end of the season, it's revealed that's he's a Double agent for China. So, someone like him would know a great deal about tracking technology.
* In the first episode of the second series of ''{{Primeval}}'', Cutter says to Stephen: [[spoiler:"You think I would have just stood by and watch you get torn to pieces?"]] which is exactly what happens at the end of the series, except [[spoiler:Stephen was behind a door only he could open.]]

* Strangely, the much maligned decision to turn an entire season of ''{{Dallas}}'' [[AllJustADream into a dream]] seems to have had plenty of ''accidental'' Foreshadowing. The 'Dream Year' has a strange, slightly surreal air completely at odds with the rest of the show as noted in [[http://www.kevinmccorrytv.com/dallas.html this article.]]
* In the revival of ''{{Dallas}}'' several were made to Rebecca [[spoiler:being Cliff's daughter]].
