* Any sequel to a pre-1966 [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney animated film]] (excluding ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'') is by definition this, as the original filmmakers always intended on completing their story in one installment due to WaltDisney's well-known dislike of sequels.

* The ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series creator Shu Takumi intended to end the story with the third game, so he set out to tie all the loose ends and give a proper send off to his characters. The problem? The game became a smash hit in Japan and surprisingly, it got a huge reception overseas as well. This soon prompted Capcom to make [[VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney a new game for the series]] but Takumi, whose story with the original characters was closed in the third game, wanted to create a whole new story with brand new characters. Capcom thought the game would become a failure if it didn't have the original protagonist so they forced his inclusion in the game. The result? A game that can very well be its own story, but at the same time, suffers from the lack of connectivity to the older games. Takumi also intended to end the series with that game but, once again, Capcom pushed for [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies a new game]]. This time though, Takumi stepped out and left the series' future to another team, although he would [[VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney continue to]] work on [[VideoGame/DaiGyakutenSaiban more AA games]].

* Season 5 of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' ended with [[spoiler: Sam making the ultimate sacrifice to put Lucifer back in his cage and Dean giving up his demon hunting ways and settling down]]. It was a very touching episode and would have made the perfect series finale, [[spoiler: cliffhanger aside]]. And then they got a sixth season. The show creator walked away but his co-producer kept it going. The season 8 showrunner claimed to have a three-season plan which would end the series at 10 seasons, but the show was renewed for yet another season.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' ended quite conclusively -- the heroes saved Cocoon, their loved ones they were trying to save were restored, the villains were dead, and humanity was facing an uncertain but hopeful future on Pulse. But WordOfGod is that fan demand for a sequel was high, so they made one. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 Said sequel]] follows the main heroine's little sister and a new character with the original party members having gone missing or playing supporting roles, features a new antagonist never even hinted at in the first game, and features a storyline almost entirely detached from the original, focusing on time travel and undoing paradoxes in the timeline. After THAT game came [[Videogame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII another game]], this time focusing entirely on Lightning and wrapping up the series for good (hopefully).

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' had a 13-episode season which brought it up to the standard 65 episodes for a syndicated cartoon. The season finale was written as the SeriesFinale, with Twilight's long plot arc as Princess Celestia's student coming to an end with Twilight Sparkle ascending to being an alicorn princess. Several months after the finale was made, but before it aired, the show was re-upped for season 4. This lead to an awkward retooling, with a substitute being created for the friendship letters, and Twilight being treated very awkwardly by the writing staff.

* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' was originally a completed series at a mere 40 episodes, with a conclusion similar to the ending of ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' (the Japanese basis for the first season) where Rita Repulsa was re-captured and thrown back into space in her dumpster after the defeat of Cyclopsis. However, the explosion in merchandise sales early into the series convinced Saban to pay Toei to film more action footage to extend the first season to 60 episodes (some which were left over and eventually used for the second season), as well as enter a contract for adapting whole future seasons. Traces of the original series finale are evident in the VERY choppy Command Center scene at the end of the aired version of "Doomsday Part 2" (in which Zordon offers the Rangers a chance to retire, even though Rita is still loose).
** ''Power Rangers in Space'' was also initially set to be the final season following ''Power Rangers Turbo'', and made great strides to finish off existing plot threads, even killing off established characters and redeeming others. The ratings were so good for ''In Space'' that the series was recommisioned.
** ''Power Rangers RPM'' was to be the final season, as Disney had decided to shelf the entire series. However, when Saban bought the series back, they decided to continue with a new Sentai adaptation, forcing a final decision on whether RPM's {{After the End}} plot would be canon. (It is, sort of...)

** It's also evident in that previous seasons stuck pretty strongly to the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil, while Season Five's BigBad the Brain was, while still very dangerous, much less so than Season Four's Trigon (because really, there's really no way to go ''up'' from the resident GodOfEvil). To compensate, the writers brought back nearly every villain the show had ever had (aside from the previous seasonal Big Bads) plus several new ones, to serve in Brain's LegionOfDoom. This might also explain why Season five shifted to episodes focused on minor characters or on characters who only appeared in the comics.
