The season type of 'hanger has a flaw: if the [[ScrewedByTheNetwork show gets canceled]], the 'hanger [[LeftHanging stays unresolved]]. A few such 'hangers are listed below. This is not to be confused with a BolivianArmyEnding, which is an ''intentionally'' unresolved cliffhanger as an ending. If this happens, the cliffhanger may be resolved in a movie or miniseries later on. Or, it may not... and that's why we have FanFiction.

Beware of these being executed badly, too. WhatCliffhanger is when a cliffhanger is so deliberately vague that it not even suspensful enough to hold a viewer's interest until the next chapter; a CliffhangerCopout is when a creator deliberately tweaks with a story's continuity of events when resolving a cliffhanger or outright refuses to reveal a piece of information that is promised at the end of one chapter to the next. A lampshaded, immediate resolution would be ToBeContinuedRightNow.

A Cliff Hanger ends an ActBreak, episode, or even a whole season (or a film or novel in a series) with some or all of the main characters in peril of some kind and the audience is made to wait for the outcome. The ToBeContinued caption is often used here. Typically the longer the viewer is made to wait, the larger the seeming peril. Indeed, this can be a DownerEnding to the part just finished -- although many apparent perils and catastrophes are not as serious as they appear. It is a rare Cliff Hanger that will cut back simply to watch 'em fall. A Cliff Hanger can also be centered around surprising revelations; either one just made, or one being saved for the 'hanger's resolution.
