* The fifth season of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' ended with Buffy dying heroically to save Dawn and, [[ApocalypseMaiden by extension]], all reality; the episode even ended with a shot of her gravestone ("She saved the world. A lot."). It was picked up for two more seasons on a different channel. Even after the series was cancelled for good, it received a comic book continuation starting with ''Buffy: Season 8''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' suffered from a variation on this. The developers have been very frank in saying that a need to meet a publisher-enforced deadline for ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' not only deprived them of much-needed game polishing time and various chunks of gameplay, but forced them to ''cut off the game's actual ending''. They had to come up with a way to pad out a game's ''third act'' into an entire new, console-selling, killer-app extravaganza. They didn't do a bad job gameplay-wise, but the storyline suffered from the resolution of most of the plot points in the previous title.
** However, 343 (a new company made up of remnants of Bungie that wanted to stay with the series after Bungie split after making ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', plus some other designers from other game companies) are currently developing a new Halo trilogy.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Anime/{{Patlabor}}'' TV series was meant to end on Episode 35, bu it was extended by 12 episodes at the last minute. Since the Griffin arc was planned to be concluded in the ''New Files'' OVA, these final episodes did not follow on it and were instead a series of one-off stories sans the two-part finale. Unlike many other examples, this was not a bad thing, as ''Patlabor'' was already an episodic show to begin with, and the "new" finale is powerful in its own right.

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' was supposed to end after Season 11, due to low ratings and network disinterest. The season finale is designed as a series finale; Luanne and Lucky are married, virtually every character from the regulars to one-shot guest stars appear as wedding guests, and the episode even ends with Hank and the gang drinking in the alley. Then Fox decided (largely due to fan outcry) to renew it at the last moment, and ''King of the Hill'' lasted two more seasons before its final cancellation. Debatable whether this helped or harmed the show, as many of the later episodes [[spoiler:Cotton's death, most notably]] are [[BaseBreaker base breakers]].

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' ended mid-2010, and the entire toyline, comics, movies and novels have become discontinued. Just about all of the main story threads got neatly, if abruptly, wrapped up and the final speech delivered, but many side-stories were still unfinished and a lot of mysteries unsolved, thus (and also because the "ending" had set up a ''ton'' of new possibilities) Franchise/{{LEGO}} agreed to keep the story going for at least another year and a half, but only the main writer, Greg Farshtey remained as the sole storyteller, as the other members of the former Story Team had moved on to other projects.

** The Dark Dragon story arc of ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' was itself a post-script season. Originally, the show was intended to last only through the Baby storyline, but Bandai asked {{Toei}} to kept the show going afterward in order to [[CashCowFranchise help promote]] their ''Dragon Ball Final Bout'' fighting game for the PlayStation.
