* ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer'' Volume 1 #18 (1970) ends with an angered Surfer swearing revenge on mankind. Future guest appearances and his later comics wouldn't touch upon the change of attitude. In 1999, a follow up occurs in #4-6 of ''Webspinners: Tales of Spider-Man''.

* Creator/DwayneMcduffie's final comic book, ''[[MilestoneComics Milestone Forever]]'', tied up most of the hanging plot threads from ''Comicbook/{{Static}}'', ''Comicbook/{{Hardware}}'', ''ComicBook/{{Icon}}'' and ''ComicBook/BloodSyndicate'', each of which had been cancelled mid-storyline over fifteen years earlier. It also provided an explanation for the characters' [[CanonImmigrant sudden appearances]] in the Franchise/DCUniverse.

* The ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' reboot effectively did a variant of this for ''Series/KnotsLanding''. While the latter series did have a GrandFinale, the show was still out of continuity with its parent series and had several lingering threads in the ReunionShow, "Back to the Cul-de-Sac" that were never followed up on. The second season of ''Dallas'' resolved this in an arc that begins after [[spoiler:J.R. Ewing's death]], revealing that Val and Gary broke up sometime between the ending of the spinoff show and the episode he comes back on, Gary coming terms with said character's death and his association with Sue Ellen and the rest of the family, and Sue Ellen herself essentially getting Gary and Val back together as a way to atone for her actions.

* In the Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse, Gary Russell's ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' novel ''Placebo Effect'' provided a finale to his ''Doctor Who'' comic strip from the ''Magazine/RadioTimes'', which had been CutShort.
* In the year 2000, authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child released a novel called ''Literature/TheIceLimit''. The novel ends with a SequelHook (which was expanded by a short epilogue on their website). The authors' [[Literature/AgentPendergast other works]] would make (sometimes [[SelfDeprecation self-deprecating]]) references to a ''The Ice Limit'' sequel, but none was forthcoming. In 2011, Preston and Child started the Gideon Crew series of novels, which included a prominent character from ''The Ice Limit'' as Gideon's boss. Finally in 2016, Preston and Child released the fourth Gideon Crew book. It's name? ''Beyond The Ice Limit''. One gets the distinct impression Preston and Child made an entirely new series ''just so they could make the sequel to their earlier story''.

* ''Series/TheXFiles'':
** "Millennium" serves as a finale to ''Series/{{Millennium}}''. To the credit of those who put together the DVD release of ''Millennium'', that episode was included on the [=DVDs=] of the last season. This might be one of the best examples of this trope backfiring. Many fans of ''Millenium'' and its star Lance Henriksen were very unhappy with the result and the way it trivialized ''Millenium'''s MythArc.
** "Jump the Shark" serves as a finale for ''Series/TheLoneGunmen'', which had been a {{spinoff}} of ''The X-Files''. (Although the title characters from ''The Lone Gunmen'' appeared in other episodes of ''The X-Files'' after cancellation of ''The Lone Gunmen'' and before "Jump the Shark," only "Jump the Shark" tied up storylines from the canceled series.) This episode does appear on the [=DVDs=] for the one and only season of ''The Lone Gunmen''.
* Not quite a Fully Absorbed Finale, but when ABC pulled ''Series/{{Taxi}}'' off the air, Dick Ebersol gave the entire cast a send-off and curtain call on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''.
* The final episode of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' was intended to serve as a finale to the entire post-[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]] continuity by producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, who had served as producers since ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', resulting in the show's events being reduced to a holodeck program run by Will Riker from ''TNG''. Taking place during the events of one fairly unimportant TNG episode as Riker looked to his predecessors while deciding what to do, you got your basic TNG holodeck episode guest-starring the ''Enterprise'' crew that doesn't really tell a story about the ''Enterprise'' characters (and doesn't really make much sense anyway because the ''Enterprise'' scenario doesn't even have much at all in common with Riker's dilemma), and Trip Tucker gets a DroppedABridgeOnHim death to boot. It ''sure'' wasn't anything like the GrandFinale to the pre-reboot TrekVerse that [[ProductionNickname Bermaga]] evidently thought they were making. The episode resulted in considerable amounts of backlash from the fans (and from the actors as well), who just wanted a solid finale to ''Enterprise'' itself.
** Ultimately, it ''does'' end up a PoorlyDisguisedPilot to ''Enterprise's'' ExpandedUniverse, which takes the ideas ''These Are The Voyages'' introduced, made it ''not suck,'' and combines it with the events known to have taken place between Ent. and TOS (particularly the Earth-Romulan War that fans had been ''hoping'' to see since before ''Enterprise'' was even announced). This storyline had its own combination of PoorlyDisguisedPilot and Fully Absorbed Finale in the form of a ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' novel in which [[IntrepidReporter Jake Sisko]] and Lieutenant Nog uncover evidence that the official record of Trip's death was a coverup of what ''really'' happened in the events of the ''Enterprise'' finale.

For loose definitions of a "Verse" (in this case, Real Life) this happens quite often in various true-crime series.

Many cases involve [[ScienceMarchesOn science]] and [[TechnologyMarchesOn technology marching on,]] as frequently these crimes will be solved thanks to ''Series/{{Millennium}}''. To the credit of those who put together the DVD release of ''Millennium'', that episode was included on the [=DVDs=] advances in modern foresnics such as DNA evidence.

The ''Franchise/KamenRider'' franchise has managed to take this trope and mashed it together with TheMovie and created something called ''Movie Wars'', in which it's the equivalent to the usual the "bring back last season's Power Rangers" episodes, with the added twist of having two stories, one for each starring rider featured. Usually the last season's Kamen Rider gets the finale part, while the current Kamen Rider gets more of a side story. The only Movie Wars to not pull the finale off was ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'''s half of ''Movie Wars Core'', though considering that they already had a GrandFinale, it made more sense to instead do an OriginStory[=/=]WholeEpisodeFlashback for a PosthumousCharacter.PosthumousCharacter.
** The Direct-To-DVD crossover special ''Kamen Rider 4'', released when ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' aired on TV, does this for ''Series/KamenRider555''. The finale for ''555'' itself was notorious for not offering any true resolution, while leaving the fate of the main character Takumi be ambiguous. ''Kamen Rider 4'' resolves some of these plot points and gives Takumi a proper sendoff. What makes this entry notable, is that ''Kamen Rider 4'' acts as a FullyAbsorbedFinale for a series that stopped airing 11 years before its release.
