* In the mid-90s, three different companies produced comics based on ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. The first company, Gladestone, published two mini-series set in Season Two before passing it to Marvel. Marvel did an adaptation to ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'' and started two series set in Season Three (one with the Rangers in morphed state and a flip book with the team in Ninja form coupled with stories based on ''Series/VRTroopers''). Only six issues of ''those'' were made before it was passed over to Awesome Comics where only ''one issue'' of a ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' comic and an ad talking about a crossover between the Zeo team and ''{{Youngblood}}'' was made.

* In the early '00s there was a quirky British comic titled ''ComicBook/BazookaJules'', by [[http://steve-huge.deviantart.com/ Neil Googe]], about a 16-year-old schoolgirl named Julie Glocke who gets mixed up in a plot involving aliens and super-science and gains the ability to turn into a [[GagBoobs ridiculously well-endowed]] ActionGirl who can spontaneously pull [[{{BFG}} gigantic pieces of armament]] out of thin air (that is to say, she has "big guns" of both kinds. *groan*). It was criticized for the underage {{Fanservice}}, but fans and critics enjoyed the humor and Googe's expressive art style. Anyway, around issue #3 (it was planned to run for six), Googe took seriously ill and someone broke into the publisher's building, stealing the material for the planned future issues, which were never recovered. Googe got better and planned a relaunch of the series with artist [=LeShawn=] Thomas, but before it got off the ground they hit some copyright issues, Thomas left to do animation work on ''TheBoondocks'', and Googe himself eventually signed an exclusive deal with DCComics, where he now works on their ''Wildstorm'' imprint. Neil Googe has retained Julie as a sort of signature character, but as a comic, ''Bazooka Jules'' seems to be as dead as it gets at this point.

removed psychonauts, which now has a sequel in some form
** ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' ended on a cliffhanger with the team speeding off to save Lili's father, but poor sales led to Majesco cancelling the sequel entirely. Tim Schafer eventually got the IP back around 2010 and has repeatedly expressed interest in creating another title, but as no publisher has stepped forward to fund it, the sequel has yet to materialize.

* A well written and hilariously machinima of RuneScape known simply as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNTp37Enwnc "The Quest"]] was started in 2006 only to be left to rot at the end of part two due to the creator apparently contracting AIDS. Needless to say that should the creator wish to continue the work, they couldn't. Runescape has since had a [[TechnologyMarchesOn massive graphics update]], making this machinima completely dead. [[AwesomenessWithdrawal Its fandom isn't taking it well.]]

* In a sort of ShowWithinAShow style example, this phenomenon got a reference in the RPG sourcebook ''{{GURPS}} Fantasy II'', where the greatest poet of a certain ancient civilization has been suffering a writer's block for ''thousands'' of years, his magnum opus left one volume short of completion. Rather than an isolated case, this is another symptom of said civilization's stagnated nature.

** On the subject of the [=oWoD=], both ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheDreaming'' and ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' were ended before the other lines, and both were left incomplete. In Changeling's case, ''Book of Glamour'' was announced, but never saw light of day, and the Kithbook series was cut short, with the Boggans and Sidhe not done (though ''Nobles: the Shining Host'' is considered an unofficial Sidhe Kithbook). Wraith's Guildbook series was also left unfinished, with five of the thirteen Great Guilds not covered.

* ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' survived a ChannelHop of distributors (from Disney to Fox), but then Walden Media's contract with the C. S. Lewis estate ended, and the series is on hold again.

* ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' survived a ChannelHop of distributors (from Disney to Fox), but then Walden Media's contract with the C. S. Lewis estate ended, and the series is on hold again. The third film's poor reviews and AdaptationDecay certainly didn't help.

* ''TwinPeaks''. The movie, ''Fire Walk With Me'', rather than concluding the story, was supposed to mark the transition from TV to films, but after its failure at the box office, the follow-up was never made. * Technically, you might say this of ''SonnyWithAChance''. Season 3 ended with Sonny Munroe (sort of) reconciling with Chad Dylan Cooper and landing a job singing songs in an outdoor café. Before the fourth season was to continue the plot line, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Demi Lovato went to rehab to treat self-harm, bulimia and drug and alcohol abuse, as well as her bipolarity]], and she decided at the end that returning to ''Sonny'' wouldn't be a good thing for her recovery. ''SoRandom'', which only loosely brought back the SWAC characters and cast (with a few additions) as part of their "ShowWithinAShow Becom(ing) A Show", [[{{Unperson}} did not mention Sonny or "Channy" at all]], [[GoKartingWithBowser used Chad Dylan Cooper as a Random]], and was canceled after one season. Demi never even got to guest on an episode as herself or Sonny.

* The 90's {{hentai}} manga series ''Dragon Pink'' by ITOYOKO had nothing after the fourth volume; to add insult to injury, it [[LeftHanging ended on a cliffhanger]] of Pink, it's main female protagonist, being impaled by a sword, the sort of cliffhanger you'd ''expect'' a manga series, hentai or not, to follow up on. To make matters worse, ITOYOKO himself is still active in the H manga drawing scene, making his refusal to finish the series after all these years even ''more'' grating.
