* After ''{{One Tree Hill}}'' was renewed for a ninth season, it was confirmed as the final season. Season 8 was also written as a FinaleSeason & wrapped up most of the character arcs over the season, but was never advertised as such, before a surprise renewal.

Added DiffLines:

*''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'''s creator stated that he decided to end the series in season 2, to guarantee it wouldn't go on to lose it's originality and becoming something he does not intend to. The season has since focused on the solution to every major mystery opened in season one, the CharacterDevelopment and revealing the DarkAndTroubledPast of characters such as Pacifica, and the resolution of romantic subplots.

* The tenth season of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' was known to be the final season, so once the fallout of season 9 had been dealt with, the series immediately started building towards the GrandFinale & gave everyone closure. Except Joey, who not only ''didn't'' get an ending to his character arc, but also had absolutely no set-up for his [[{{Joey}} spin-off series]].

* ''{{Smallville}}'' put the words "The Final Season" above the title in the commercials for its tenth season.

* Similarly, all the commercials for the episodes of the last season of ''{{Monk}}'' always had the tagline of it being the final season.
* For the final season of ''MurphyBrown'', show creator Diane English returned and gave the show an almost complete overhaul. The biggest change was a season arc in which Murphy is diagnosed with cancer, thus giving the show more gravitas. Also, Miles Silverberg was written out and replaced by a new executive producer played by Lily Tomlin, and [[spoiler:Phil, who was killed off a few seasons back, was brought back, his death {{retconned}} as going into hiding because of all the secrets he knew about Washington.]]

* The final season of ''{{Lost}}'' distinguished itself from the other seasons by attempting to answer the big questions concerning the island, instead of posing more. A new plot device was introduced revealing the existence of a possible alternate Universe. The characters found themselves involved in a massive centuries-old power struggle.

* The anouncement of ''{{Chuck}}'''s fifth season renewal was swiftly followed two days later by the anouncement it would be the final season, after two seasons which received 13 episode renewals which were written as the GrandFinale before NBC ordered more episodes to extend the seasons, which subsequently ended on cliffhangers instead.
