** The season 3 finale (which incidentally pays off said Star Swirl sequel hook) definitely is trying to draw you in for season 4. Twilight turns into an alicorn and is now a princess of Equestria. [[WordOfGod According to the writer's twitter]], she considers this episode the first in a 3-parter.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': Specific eps are full of these connecting more of the dots of the series MythArc. Season 2 in particular really kicks it into overdrive.
** Stan's mantra of "Gravity Falls will return" is heard during the credits of "Gideon Rises".
** "Scaryoke": [[spoiler: The Government Agents Dipper called survive the zombie attack which is enough confirmation for them to investigate Gravity Fall, The Mystery Shack in particular.]]
** "Into The Bunker": [[spoiler: Dipper, Mabel, Wendy and Soos find an old underground laboratory of the author of the journals. After surviving a shape-shifting experiment, Soos reveals he found an old laptop that could point them to the author's whereabouts.]]
** "Sock Opera": [[spoiler: Bill tricks Dipper into swaping bodies and destroys the laptop. While Mabel manages to force Bill out of Dipper's body, Bill warns that "something big is coming".]]
** "Society of the Blind Eye": [[spoiler: Old Man [=McGucket=] was revealed to have worked with the Author on the journals, and his memories are slowly returning to him. Also, the machine in Stan's basement is getting stronger, and he claims that no one will get in his way... [[WhamShot then the camera focuses ominously on the picture of Dipper and Mabel]]]].
** "Northwest Mansion Mystery": A major three way one. [[spoiler: [=McGucket=] manages to restore the laptop Bill tried to destroyed and warns Dipper something bad is coming. We get a view of the trapestry in the manor of Bill setting the land on fire and the Government agents prepare to pull off their sting operation.]]
** "Not What He Seems" and the following ep "A Tale of Two Stans: [[spoiler: Stan reveals he's been trying to activate the portal to save his twin brother, Stanford a.k.a the author of Journals. Once the two explain everything to the twins and Soos, Stanford gives Stanly an ultimatum: Once the summer is done and the twins are sent back home, Stanley gives Ford his house back and shut down the Mystery Shack.]]
** "Dungeons, Dungeons, & More Dungeons" [[spoiler: Ford reveals to Dipper he dismantled the portal. But due to Stanley's last use of it, it created a small space time energy which Ford fears will be enough for whatever was on the other side of the portal (coughBillcough) to seep through. He puts it away in a safe for the time being, but the camera lingers ominously on it.]]
** "The Stanchurian Candidate" [[spoiler: When the Pines foil his plan to control Gravity Falls as mayor through his father via Mind-Control. Gideon once more summons Bill to make another deal.]]
** "Weirdmageddon Part 3'' [[spoiler: Dipper opens the note he got from Wendy saying he was welcome to return next summer. TheStinger also shows Bill Cypher as a live-action statue, seemingly implying that he would someday return...]]

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': The animatic during the end credits of "The Rider", shows the final shot from the end of the episode from a few seconds earlier, which pulls out to show Lord Dominator laughing maniacally; this may suggest that he may replace Lord Hater as BigBad, or that they'll get involved in a EvilVersusEvil BigBadEnsemble in season 2. One thing's for sure, the season 2 premiere will pick up where the previous episode left off, and thankfully, it's not "The Gift".

Compare TheEndOrIsIt, HereWeGoAgain, TheStinger, AndTheAdventureContinues, ToBeContinued, SavedForTheSequel. Can occur as part of InescapableHorror. Obviously, '''many spoilers ahead'''.

A '''Sequel Hook''' is something in a work that suggests that there is a clear possibility for another story. The {{MacGuffin}}s may come in threes, the BigBad might be NotQuiteDead, or, more blatantly, as the story ends another adventure might be shown beginning.
