* ''Series/AmericanGothic'': Although, in the words of series creator Shaun Cassidy, "we saw the ending coming soon enough to wrap the story up," the last episode left a lot of unanswered questions: what did Merlyn's disappearance mean? Was her [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice a failure, or not? Was she absorbed into Caleb? Does he now possess her powers and innate goodness with which to fight Buck's sinister influence?]] Will Gail still be under Buck's thrall, or will she snap out of her {{Chickification}} and bite him in the balls again? Will Selena ever stop going through that HeelFaceRevolvingDoor? Is Buck going to succeed in corrupting Caleb or not? Even for a mystery show, and one which by its very nature is cyclical, not much makes sense here.

* ''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 [[Creator/{{Geneon}} 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, or indeed for there to be an official English release of ''Sailor Stars'' (a subtitled version of which was posted on Creator/{{Hulu}} once subs of the rest of the series' run had been re-released there, beginning immediately after Viz had announced the license). 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.

* ''Series/{{JAG}}'': The last episode of the first season, ”Skeleton Crew”, ended on a cliffhanger with Rabb arrested as a murder suspect. At the same time JAG was cancelled on {{NBC}} but soon got uncancelled on {{CBS}}. The story was eventually resolved in third season episode ”Death Watch”.

* ''Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket'''s English dub from [[Creator/{{Geneon}} Pioneer]] and Phuuz was cut short after 79 episodes (skipping ep. 3). This discounts an unrelated English dub of eps. 145 and 155 from Creator/StreamlinePictures. Only 25 of those episodes aired on Creator/AdultSwim due to low ratings with more episodes released to DVD and broadcast on G4. The DVD releases were canceled due to low sales. There was a rumor that more episodes or even ''all'' the episodes were dubbed by Phuuz, but this has never been proven true. All 80 English dub episodes (including 145 and 155) were uploaded to Creator/{{Hulu}}, but nothing else seemed to come until December 2015 when Website/{{Crunchyroll}} posted episodes 81-155 subbed in North America, to be followed with Creator/DiscotekMedia announcing that they were going to release the entire series on DVD starting in 2016.

* Given the open-ended nature of professional wrestling, it wouldn't be a surprise if numerous storylines from defunct promotions would be halted when those companies went out of business.
