* A Videogame/PokemonGoldAndSilver manga, ''Manga/PokemonGoldenBoys'', ended abruptly after three volumes. It didn't finish the Johto arc and despite numerous references to [[Videogame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red]] we never see him.

** On a more obscure note, the second installment in Creator/TakeshiShudo's ''[[LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation novelizations]]'' of the anime included a "to be continued" note in the afterword, but the third volume was never released, plus Shudo died in 2010.

%% * ''Series/{{Drive}}''


Added DiffLines:

* While ''Series/{{Primeval}}'' managed to wrap up most of its story arcs, its spin-off show, ''Series/PrimevalNewWorld'', didn't. Its first and only season ends with Evan killing the ''Albertosaurus'', only for the anomalies to start disappearing because something changed. The show ends with Evan and Dylan running towards an anomaly, and we have no idea why the anomalies began to disappear--or even if they made it back to the present in time.

* ''TokyoMewMew'''s English dub "Mew Mew Power" only covered the first 26 out of 52 episodes due to FourKidsEntertainment not reaching a merchandise deal for the show. Only 23 episodes aired in the US, finishing with a pretty standard episode and nothing resembling a conclusion. All 26 English dub episodes aired in Canada, the UK, and Australia, ending the series on a really sharp cliffhanger complete with a "To be Continued..." message. To make matters worse, the English dub was the source of many foreign dubs like the Spanish, Dutch, Hungarian, Danish, and Greek dubs, which all ended on the same cliffhanger, while the French, Hebrew, Serbian, and Portuguese dubs were {{Uncanceled}} and got their own local dubs of the second half of ''Tokyo Mew Mew''.
* ''[[VideoGame/FZero F-Zero GP Legend]]'''s English dub from FourKidsEntertainment (which was surprisingly pretty accurate) only covered the first 15 episodes out of 51.

* ''Manga/DGrayMan'': The English Dub ended when Allen Walker and co. were leaving on a ship still on the search for General Cross with the Millennium Earl and Road Kamelot looking at a large amount of Akuma (that are clearly meant for the exorcists). Then...nothing. The English Dub ends at that point halfway through the series with no plans at the moment to dub the other half due to the Japanese licensors asking for more money than Creator/FUNimation is willing to pay.

Then...nothing. The English Dub ends at that point halfway through the series with no plans at the moment to dub the other half due to the Japanese licensors asking for more money than Creator/FUNimation is willing to pay. However, this may or may not change, due to the fact that Creator/FUNimation has in fact licensed the 2016 series, ''Hallow'', as part of the 2016 Summer Simulcast season.



* ''Manga/SailorMoon'''s DiC English dub was originally cut short in the middle of R (the second season) with only 65 episodes dubbed (covering the first 72 Japanese episodes) before it was {{Uncanceled}} after YTV and Irwin Toy in Canada offered to fund more episodes to wrap up the storyline, which resulted in the last 17 episodes of R being dubbed and labeled "The Lost Episodes." It was another three years before YTV and CartoonNetwork funded episodes of the ''S'' and ''[=SuperS=]'' seasons (with {{Pioneer}} funding dubs of the movies) without DiC and instead with Toei's US branch "Cloverway." Unfortunately, they were never able to dub the final season ''Sailor Stars''. It wasn't until Viz Media picked up the series and commissioned an entire redub that an English dub of that season was finally announced.

They also plan to dub the special shorts that were attached to the movies, as well as the mini specials that were part of the [=SuperS=] season.



* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'''s English dub also only covered the first season before {{Geneon}} went under. The sequel series, which explains the plot of the first season, has never been licensed or dubbed (though it got a sub-only release in Australia). Both seasons have been rescued by Creator/SentaiFilmworks, but still no word on a dub of the second season.

* ''SwatKats'' came to an end when the writers had several episode ideas to put on the table. Consider it TooGoodToLast.

* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'': For some reason, Nick decided to cancel the show ''despite it getting ratings'' on the same reason the aforementioned ''How To Rock'' got cancelled, and thus, has no happy ending, and also led to the FandomRivalry of VictoriaJustice and ArianaGrande (which destroyed their friendship) to boot.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' ended without explaining what happened to Arnold's parents on their final mission, all due of the box office failure of ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'', and because the show's creator couldn't agree with Nickelodeon over a contract extension. Result: no extension at all. There was going to be a "Jungle Movie" which would have resolved practically everything - Arnold goes with his class to San Lorenzo to find his parents, and he finally [[RelationshipUpgrade hooks up with Helga]]. Over the years, many a fan have petitioned to have it made and even Craig Barlett expressed his wish to come back and make it.
** 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 TV movie was in development, and so far it seems to resemble the long-awaited Jungle Movie.

The show's final episodes, "The Journal", were the movie's prologue and ended on a CliffHanger. Unfortunately, thanks to the box office failure of ''Hey Arnold!

Only one of these -- "The Curse of Dracula" -- reached its conclusion within the 10-week run. Low ratings and the absurdity of the storylines, plus [=ABC=]'s one-two punch of ''HappyDays'' and ''Series/LaverneAndShirley'', turned "Cliffhangers" into a show that truly left the viewer hanging after cancellation. As a postscript, the "Stop Susan Williams" and "The Secret Empire" installments were re-edited into two-hour "made-for-TV" movies for later re-airing by NBC, and included their intended conclusions.
