* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'': Happens fairly often due to the RevolvingDoorCasting. For example, in season 2, Vixen I (the grandmother of the current Vixen) joins the team to replace Hawkgirl. During season 3, when Jefferson leaves after [[spoiler: Martin dies]], Wally joins shortly after.

* ''Warlord'', a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-inspired and highly self-aware CollectibleCardGame, spoofed this with the card "[[YouAllMeetInAnInn Meet at the Inn]]"; its FlavorText:
-->''"Come on, guys! I have an overwhelming urge to go to the nearest inn and meet a pair of strangers who will help us in our quest!"''\\
''"What, so soon after our two friends died?"''

* With each new generation of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' (besides [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Generation II]]), Ash is accompanied by a different female companion. Misty ([[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Original]] [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Series]]) is succeeded by May (''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Advanced Generation]]''), then Dawn (''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond & Pearl]]''), then Iris (''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Best]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 Wishes!]]''), then Serena (''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY XY]]''). Note that each character from May on is the female player character from her respective games (whereas Ash starts wearing the outfits inspired by the male PC beginning with ''D/P''). Starting with ''Best Wishes!'', Ash's male companion is also different and largely serves in the same roles (being a Gym Leader, TheLancer and a TeamChef). This trend largely ended with the ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Sun and Moon]]'' series due to {{ReTool}}ing the general plot from traveling around the region with constant companions to Ash attending a school with his classmates not appearing in every episode.

* ''Series/NewsRadio'': After dealing with Bill's death in the first episode of the fifth season, his replacement, Max Louis, is introduced in the next episode. Partially justified: it's a radio station and they do need an announcer (but not necessarily a wacky announcer).

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' is based around the idea of three specific [[WitchSpecies witch]] sisters who are {{The Chosen One}}s because they have "the Power of Three." So what to do when one of those sisters is McLeaned? Reveal that there was a ''fourth'' sister [[LongLostRelative they didn't know about]]! To be fair, it worked surprisingly well--their mom's [[MalignedMixedMarriage affair with her Whitelighter]] was already established, providing a good reason for Paige to be given up for adoption, and her sudden appearance after Prue's death was {{Justified}} as the result of a spell to reconstitute the Power of Three (which her appearance made possible).
