* ''WesternAnimation/TheNewMrPeabodyAndShermanShow'' holds a tribute to History's Lasts (to compliment the first episode's tribute to History's Firsts) and closes an a large guest musical number that the entire cast joins in on. And while everyone stresses it's just the last episode of the season, no seems to be able to say "of the season" in a way that sounds confident that there will be any more seasons.

** The second GrandFinale, ''Graduation'', not only has all the characters graduate high school (except [[AlphaBitch Bonnie]], [[LaserGuidedKarma who has to go to summer school]]), but has an alien invasion which [[TrashTheSet destroys all the major locations of the series, from Kim's house to Drakken's lair to even Bueno Nacho.]]

* Taken to extreme extremes with ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow''. Prior to it's airing, there was no indication whatsoever that "Cardburkey" was going to be the final episode, or even that the show was ending at all, until Brak delivers the episode's final line "I wish we [[ItMakesSenseInContext weren't penguins]] and [[BreathlessNonSequitur our show wasn't cancelled!]]" Cut to black. Cartoon Network logo with a [[LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand deflated]] snippet of the theme song. End.

* ''Series/TheLateLateShow with Craig Ferguson'' increasingly pointed out that they were approaching their series finale (complete with a "Just a few more weeks of this crap~!" jingle). The finale featured a [[OnceAnEpisode viewer e-mail]] from someone who had apparently only started watching Ferguson ''that week.''
