* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': Ran for ''four'' seasons but [[GenndyTartakovsky Genndy]] jumped ship to focus on other ventures leaving no real ending. He promised a movie to wrap up the series, but so far it's been stuck in DevelopmentHell. Instead, a comic went into publication that acted as a spiritual season 5, which left some hope intact. This hope was validated when Creator/{{Toonami}} announced that a new season of the show for 2016, with Tartakovsky returning as executive producer.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' seems to have fallen victim to this. Due to its abrupt cancellation, it ended with many unresolved plotlines and unexplored characters. The final episode itself only resolved a ''fraction'' of the many plot points introduced earlier in the season.

The polar opposite of a GrandFinale: a series ends abruptly, without resolution of its basic premise, due to some unplanned event such as {{cancellation}} or AuthorExistenceFailure. The story does not end, it simply stops ''in medias res'', possibly with a CliffHanger. In a few lucky cases, TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised, but goes directly to DVD. In even luckier cases the series will be able to WrapItUp with a miniseries or theatrical film. More often than not, however, there is no final resolution.

Sadly common in {{Webcomics}}, since these are often one man shows, and hobby ones at that, and RealLifeWritesThePlot (or doesn't, to be accurate) when the authors get too busy to continue. Moreover, quite a few television shows had also got cut short by The Writer's Strike of 2007. Some did manage to continue, but others were left in the dust.

** Thankfully, in 2015, Nickelodeon -- on a nostalgia kick with the success of [=TeenNick=]'s The 90's Are All That/The Splat block -- announced that a new Arnold movie was in development, and so far it seems to resemble the long-awaited Jungle Movie.

* ''WesternAnimation/SheZow'' just ''stops'' after the initial 26-episode run, giving the impression that the series was intended to continue past the first season. Indeed, WordOfGod says the show was initially greenlit by the Hub Network for a second season, only for the network to change their minds a month later.

Compare NoEnding, in which there is a deliberate decision to end a work abruptly, and LeftHanging, where while the series ends, many questions are left unanswered. Can also happen to [[CurseCutShort curses]]. If it doesn't deal with the major plot issues, a GeckoEnding will include this. See also [[OrphanedSeries Orphaned Series]].

* ''MaisonIkkoku'''s English dub was initially canceled after episode 36 due to low VHS sales, but was UnCanceled, and the remaining 60 episodes were dubbed and released years later with a mostly different cast.
* ''SaintSeiya'''s edited English dub from DiC entitled ''Knights of the Zodiac'' was canceled after 40 episodes, though only 32 aired on CartoonNetwork. Then ADV (who was releasing the [=DVDs=]) was allowed to produce their own uncut English dub, which ended at episode 60 because DiC refused to license anymore episodes. After DiC's license expired, the series remained in limbo for many years before it was rescued by Flatiron Films/Cinedigm, who released a sub-only boxset of the first 73 episodes.
