* Season 7 of ''Series/TheWestWing'' opens with a FlashForward of most of the cast in the future, waiting for Bartlet's successor (who we don't see the face of). Leo isn't present at this scene- a FunnyAneurysmMoment in retrospect, as John Spencer died three months later.
* On ''Series/That70sShow'', there is a FlashForward showing where the kids will be at their 10-year high school [[ClassReunion reunion]] -- in the 1980s, including big hair and New Wave Music.

* The entire final episode of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', "These Are The Voyages" is both a FlashBack ''and'' a FlashForward. The main story is set some six years after the rest of the series, and is told as a holodeck reenactment. The framing story takes place two centuries later during the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "The Pegasus", which aired over a decade earlier. As the entire episode is recreated on the Holodeck of the Enterprise D circa 2370 and the only real people we see are Riker and Troi the rest being holographic recreations, it's really only a Flashback episode as we are viewing an historical event.

* Used on ''TheSimpsons'' several times, including the episode "Lisa's Wedding", which is almost entirely FlashForward (in spite of her advanced age, Maggie never gets the chance to speak, or sing as the case may be: see TheVoiceless). "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie" ends with Homer taking Bart to see the movie he banned him from seeing forty years before.

** Generally the FlashForward episodes have NegativeContinuity with each other but the most recent one "Holidays of Future Passed" contains several {{Continuity Nod}}s to the others - Bart married (and then divorced) Jenda (his future girlfriend according to "Future-Drama"), Lisa ended up with Milhouse and Maggie became a famous singer as "Lisa's Wedding" predicted.

* The ABC series [=FlashForward=], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as can logically be expected]], has this as its premise. Everyone in the world blacks out at the same time and sees a glimpse of their future.

* In ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', one of the doctors creating test-tube babies is interrupted, and can't recall if she added one of the components to a specimen. She decides that she has, and moves on. The scene then flashes forward twenty-two years to show the aformentioned person suddenly dropping dead.
* In ''The Future of Us'' by Carolyn Mackler and Jay Asher, this happens. In 1996, neighbors Josh and Emma install AOL on their computers and are immediately logged on to {{Facebook}}. Obviously, Facebook hasn't been invented yet, so they are viewing their futures. In fact, every time they log on, their page changes.

* A moderately common device in ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace''. Whole-strip flashforwards are signalled by the page having a red background (just as [[WholeEpisodeFlashback whole-strip flashbacks]] have a blue background), but more common are strips that flash forward in the last panel, usually using the Lancelot/Guenevere relationship for HypocriticalHumour.
