* After 23 years of running non-stop. This ultimately happened with [[ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog]] via cancellation due the company restructuring and financial troubles. The comics at the least were able to finish up the "Shattered World" arc (aka the ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' adaptation) but that was as far as a proper closure it was going to get. Following issues were meant to head into a new arc but the axe came down at that point and nixed any future plans. Sega since then [[ChannelHop gave the comic license to IDW]] and, while having the same writers, rebooted the comic world rather then continue the previous universe.

* When the ''[[Anime/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl Monster Musume]]'' anime first aired back in 2015, several artists and anons met on imageboards to discuss the series, and decided to create a parallel story starring the [[EnsembleDarkhorse Bicycle Cop]] and girls from the most dangerous liminal subspecies available, as a sort of "evil" counterpart of Kimihito's harem. So ''[[http://dailylifewithamonstergirl.wikia.com/wiki/Everyday_Life_With_Bicycle_Cop Everyday Life with Bicycle Cop]]'' was born. High-quality art of the girls was made, along with backstories and info pages that perfectly replicated Okayado's writing and drawing style. Several strips were made to show the interactions between the girls and the cop, like a very funny and occasionally sweet sitcom. Unfortunately the artists either got bored, had other commitments or jumped to other fanbases, so the project slowed down and eventually came to a halt. The anons sent the whole work to Okayado as a sign of gratitude, in any case.

* Many Website/YouTube reaction videos where someone watches a certain series end up unfinished. Although sometimes it's not because the "reactor" became unable or uninterested, but because [[ScrewedByTheLawyer the ones holding the copyright make the video be pulled]] (and three strikes terminates the channel).

* In a particularly early example, the ''Horace'' series of video games on the UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum became orphaned following the departure of its creator from the video game industry in the mid-80's after suffering a collapsed lung. The series came to a close in 1985, with a standalone game appearing ten years later, and then nothing since.

* The first two installments of Creator/ArthurCClarke's Space Odyssey series, ''2001: A Space Odyssey'' and ''2010: Odyssey Two'' have film adaptations, but not ''2061: Odyssey Three'' or ''3001: The Final Odyssey''. Tom Hanks expressed interest in doing film adaptations of the last two, but this was ''ages'' ago, and Keir Dullea and Douglas Rain are now probably too old to do the rest of the series.

* ''Film/TronLegacy'' would get a sequel, but Disney decided against it (supposedly for the box office failure of ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}''). By now, any rumors regarding another ''Film/{{Tron}}'' are of a possible reboot.






* The ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' series has now become this with the team who were making the new games being fired by Activision.

* Music/TheBeachBoys had planned for a ''Stars & Stripes'' series featuring various other artists (primarily in CountryMusic) doing remakes of their most famous hit. After ''Stars & Stripes, Vol. 1'' bombed, they abandoned any plans for a ''Vol. 2'', although one track for what would have become ''Vol. 2'' (a cover of "In My Room" with Tammy Wynette) later appeared on one of Wynette's compilation albums.

* ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' was called off in a GrandFinale when the creator was unable to continue his work for financial and contractual reasons. One of the supporting developers revived the series not long after with ''Nexus Clash'', but the sequel isn't as well-known and took several years of development to get itself back to something resembling the level of quality players expected from the original.
