* ''Series/MidsomerMurders'' takes an entire county of small towns as its setting, but it's been running so long that this is a problem anyway.
** Justified, as nearly every episode has 3 or more deaths and without new neighbours, there would be hardly anyone left.

* ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' did this a lot, most noticeable during the first season with students. An episode would center around a student who couldn't read or was disabled or whatever lesson of the week required. Every other child would know who they were and what their problem was, as if that student had always been there. Yet, we'd never seen them before and never saw them since.
** Averted in some early episodes when a few of the school children played by regular extras were slowly given the odd line, a name and once or twice worked into the plot directly for an episode.

* Arguably ''Franchise/TheSims'', in particularly ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheSims3 3]]'' if you're following the stories of the Maxis/EA premade families.
** Can also happen quite literally with Story Progression, which sometimes will randomly generate families to movie into houses.

* ''{{Fillmore}}'' reuses the faces of previous episodes' characters, but they never speak or do anything of importance. Outside the safety patrol itself, no character features in more than one episode, [[RememberTheNewGuy even those who have a history with the regulars]].

* ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'' is set on the island of Guernsey during World War II. New islander characters are often introduced as acquaintances of the main characters, and sometimes implied to be close friends they're regularly in social contact with (as for instance the Prideux family in "The Polish Affaire"), but will nevertheless, with very few exceptions, appear for only one episode and never appear or be mentioned before or since.

** Voyager did this too, with the twist that the "new" characters were in fact the three bottom-performing crewmen on the ship.
