->"August 29, 1997, came and went. Nothing much happened. Michael Jackson turned 40. There was no Judgment Day. People went to work as they always do. Laughed, complained, watched TV, made love. I wanted to run to through the street yelling to grab them all and say, 'Every day from this day on is a gift. Use it well.' Instead, I got drunk."
-->--'''Sarah Connor''', ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' alternate ending

* ''Podcast/TheAdventureZone'': In the finale, after the battle, all the player characters are asked to describe their happy ending, with an "offer" from Griffin that they can accept or reject, all wrapping up in a final epilogue scene that takes place a year after the Hunger is defeated. Justin and Clint describe what Taako and Merle have been doing in the intervening year, with loose prompts from Griffin, but when it's Magnus's turn, Griffin asks Travis [[spoiler: "How does Magnus die?" Since such a big part of Magnus's character was wanting to go down in a blaze of glory and finally reunite with his wife, it's pretty significant that instead, [[TearJerker Magnus dies peacefully of old age, surrounded by friends, and is ushered to the Astral Plane by Kravitz, who gives him special permission to stay with Julia as long as they want before they join the rest of the souls.]] ]]

* ''Series/LittleLunch'': Enforced. The 2016 specials take place a year after the series proper, with "The Nightmare Before Graduation", [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as you can possibly guess]], taking place just prior to the kids graduating. According to WordOfGod, this was because by the time of filming the kids had all grown so much they couldn't possibly pretend they were all still in grade 5.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'' is this for the ''[=SpongeBob=]'' series. WordOfGod says that everything that comes after the movie Seasons 4 and onward including the 2nd movie are actually prequels.

* Mixed with WhatCouldHaveBeen, ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Christmas episode from season 23 ("Holidays of Futures Passed") takes place 30 years in the future, showing Bart and Lisa as parents trying to raise their children and realizing that parenting isn't as easy as it looks (Bart is a divorced dad living in what used to be Springfield Elementary School—which is now an apartment complex, while Lisa is trying to bond with her rebellious teenage daughter whom she had with Milhouse, and Maggie, now a popular singer, is about to have a child of her own). What makes it a "finale" of sorts is that it was supposed to be the last episode of the series (since the show was suffering from budget issues and FOX was considering cancellation to save money. After everyone agreed to cutting the show's budget, the show was saved from cancellation and greenlit for seasons 24 and 25).
** Which is just about where they would be, since the series time was "frozen" in 1989 or so.
* More of a distant penultimate episode since it aired right before the real finale, but the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Act Your Age" is about a post-high school Phineas looking for a college and also finally {{subvert|edTrope}}ing ObliviousToLove and realizing Isabella's love for him, ultimately ending with them going to the same college together.

* ''Lilies of the Field'' (1963) by William Barrett ends with a short flash-forward about twenty or thirty years. The ramshackle convent is now a bustling community center, school, and religious center. The events of the novel have become folklore and myth, when they are remembered at all. The foundation of the convent and how Homer Smith helped them out has all become legend. No one remembers what Homer Smith really looked like (except they still know that he was African American). This has not stopped them from portraying him in stained glass and statutes as an angelic or saintly character.
This list shows the last 10 events of 204. Show all.
