* ''Series/DoctorWho'': "Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways", which ended with [[TheNthDoctor the regeneration of the Ninth Doctor]] into the Tenth Doctor and with Captain Jack Harkness being left behind on the space station for reasons the Doctor wouldn't explain until the Series ''3'' finale. (It should be mentioned that Doctor Who series only have 13-14 episodes per season, so this may not belong in this section.)

Episodes 15-16 of a season tend to fall around the time of (February) {{Sweeps}}, so networks will have big spectacular episodes to attract viewers. Plot shifts are not uncommon here, as these are the early installments of the "[[Front13Back9 Back 9]]" extension.

* ''{{Terriers}}'' is a textbook example of a season finale that works as either a cliffhanger for next season or a satisfying resolution to the series. (It turned out to be the latter when the show was not renewed.)
* TheHouseOfElliott, a three-season PeriodDrama with ten episodes per series and no finite plot, more similar to an American series than the typical British literary adaptation or original period miniseries, ended on a cliffhanger with one of the sisters threatening to walk out on the eponymous fashion house. However, Creator/TheBBC then decided not to commission another series, so the series was left dangling.
