* Justin Roiland's short-lived series ''WebVideo/HouseOfCosbys'' was cancelled because of a cease and desist from one of Bill Cosby's attorneys. As a result, a lot of plot threads were left unresolved, such as Cosby 10 and Mitchell finding out why aliens attacked the compound, Evil Cosby's intentions, and Cosbyette giving birth to Mitchell's child.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'''s English dub from Creator/FUNimation and BLT Productions was cut short after the first 13 episodes and first movie. It wasn't until ''DragonBallZ'' found success in the US was Creator/FUNimation able to give the show a second try and produce an all-new English dub from scratch.

** The original FUNimation produced, Saban distributed, Ocean voiced version of ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' ended after 53 episodes (or 56 episodes if the butchered ''Anime/TheTreeOfMight'' three-parter is counted). This led to these 53 episodes being rerun '''countless''' times on Cartoon Network until FUNimation finally dubbed new episodes. There is a common misconception that the "Ocean dub" continued in Canada only, however this dub (which covered the Cell-Buu arcs) was a completely separate production with drastically different music and many recasts.

* ''Film/TheWeddingMarch'' was not supposed to be this. It ends with Nicki going through with his ArrangedMarriage to Cecilia, on a day full of ominous foreboding, while his lover Mitzi promises to marry the jealous Schani. It was followed up with an immediate sequel, ''The Honeymoon'', in which the messy LoveDodecahedron was pursued to a full DownerEnding--but the only known print of ''The Honeymoon'' was lost to a fire in 1959. Consequently ''The Wedding March'' is left hanging.

* ''Franchise/Bionicle2015'' was launched with an intended 3 year lifespan, with the possibility to extend its run if the toys sold well. It got abruptly canceled in less than two years, with the last wave of toys [[NoExportForYou not reaching Asian and Pacific markets]]. At least its story got a haphazard conclusion, though many secrets were left unanswered.

* ''Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket'''s English dub from Creator/{{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 Hulu, but nothing else seemed to come until December 2015 when Crunchyroll posted episodes 81-155 subbed in North America, to be followed with Discotek Media announcing that they were going to release the entire series on DVD starting in 2016.

* ''Manga/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.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'''s English dub originally only covered the initial 51 episodes before it was UnCanceled and reached episode 78. FUNimation has the license to the first 104 episodes, but has put their dub on hold. As more years go by, it's looking more and more likely that the dub isn't continuing, and it's extremely unlikely that all 360+ episodes will be localized.
* ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'''s English dub only covered the first season before {{Geneon}} went under. The series was later rescued by Creator/SentaiFilmworks, who chose not to dub the remaining three seasons.
* ''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 unfortunately, like ''FoZ'', these seasons will not dubbed.

* ''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.

* The English dub of the 1999 adaptation of [[Manga/HunterxHunter Hunter x Hunter]] only covers the original 62 episode run of the television series. Creator/VizMedia [[NoDubForYou never bothered dubbing the OVAs]], ''which continue the story''.

** Even though the story has taken a rather drastic change in tone and major characters, it has seemed to successfully subvert this trope and is now continuing with the sequel, "To Love Ru Darkness".
** Kentaro Yabuki's other series, ''Manga/MayoiNekoOverrun'', was Cut Short as well, and far, far worse than ''ToLoveRu'' was - at least that had an [[AndTheAdventureContinues ending of sorts]]. The last chapter of ''Manga/MayoiNekoOverrun'' is the beginning of an {{arc}} and it even tells the reader to check the next month for the continuation. Which doesn't exist.

* The 90's {{hentai}} manga series ''Dragon Pink'' by ITOYOKO had [[OrphanedSeries nothing after the fourth volume]]; to add insult to injury, it ended on a cliffhanger of Pink, it's main female protagonist, being impaled by a sword, the sort of cliffhanger you'd ''expect'' a manga series, hentai or not, to follow up on. To make matters worse, ITOYOKO himself is still active in the H manga drawing scene, making his refusal to finish the series after all these years even ''more'' grating.

* ''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. 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' met it's fate because Disney thought that 80 episodes was long enough for a series, and were going to make more money by showing re-runs on Disney XD rather then give it a third season. Similar to WesternAnimation/CloneHigh, the show unfortunately ended on a bit of a cliff-hangar.

** 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.
