** The season 11 finale, "Behind the Laughter", reveals that the Simpsons are actually AnimatedActors and the episode serves as a reflection of the show's own rise to success. The episode finally reveals WhereTheHellIsSpringfield, addresses the show's recent decline in quality, deconstructs many of the show's running gags, and ends with Homer stating that this'll be the last season.

* ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' ends in a way that it simultaneously wraps up Craig's Bond's story, while also having a note of AndTheAdventureContinues. Craig was contracted to appear in one more film but struck a deal with the studios; of course Bond Will Return, but Craig may or may not be back.

* IDW's ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersIDW Transformers]]'' comic recently had a delibirate example. Issue 31 of the Ongoing is purposely written so that it can be used as the final issue for the entire IDW continuity. As such exactly what's happened between the previous issues and issue 31 is unclear. It takes place hundreds of years in the future, Ironhide and Alpha Trion are some of the few remaining memebers of the original Autobots, the Transformers live on Gorlam Prime instead of Cyberton, and Megatron and Optimus Prime have disappeared. This has now been Jossed. ''ComicBook/Transformers/DarkCybertron'' saw Gorlam Prime destroyed and left Ironhide concerned and suffered with depression that the happy ending he saw will not come to pass.
* ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' issue 50 certainly has that final issue feel to it - Dr. Robotnik was dead, Sally (who was thought to be dead) was alive, everyone was safe from Robotnik's tyranny and, if the series stopped there, things wouldn't have felt off. Granted, though, this was probably due to ExecutiveMeddling forcing them to alter the comic.

** ''Film/DestroyAllMonsters'' was going to be the last ''Godzilla'' film, as it takes place in the future, the Big Bad is killed, and they all live happily ever after. But, it wasn't.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven'': the third season ends with the [[spoiler: destruction of the protagonists' almost-magical spaceship, the Liberator. It also kills off both chief villain Servalan and (off screen) original series lead Blake, leading to hasty resurrections when the show came back.]] In the 4th season, the actual series finale [[spoiler: very strongly suggested the protagonists were all killed,]] but left a little wiggle room, in case there was a fifth season.

** ''WebAnimation/DeathComesToTime'' might have been intended as this for ''Doctor Who''. It came out in 2001, when the show had been off-air for 12 years, save a TV Movie in 1996, although there was still the huge Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse was still running. It has a Universe where the Time Lords have either been mostly killed off or are withdrawing, possibly tying into the Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures at the time. It also has [[spoiler:the Doctor dying in a HeroicSacrifice to destroy rogue Time Lord Tannis and save his companion Ace]], and Ace gaining Time Lord powers, bringing about a new age for the Universe. However it, oddly enough, features the 7th Doctor instead of the 8th, who was the current Doctor, and in many ways feels unlike "Doctor Who", with aspects like changing Time Lords from SufficientlyAdvancedAliens to [[RealityWarper Reality Warpers]]. Thankfully "Doctor Who" was revived 4 years later, and "Death comes to Time" is now generally regarded as an AlternateContinuity, though some fans use it to [[FanonDiscontinuity de-canonize]] the TV Movie and revived series.

** The fifth season of is a pretty good example, if you ignore the cliffhanger at the very end. The story that had been building for the past 5 seasons had finally been resolved, the BigBad was defeated, Kripke stopped writing the show, and it could have all been over. Except it wasn't, it wasn't even at the half way point!

* ''Series/CSINewYork'' did this in its seventh season with 'Exit Strategy', which had Mac leave the NY crime lab to work on identifying the remains of 9/11 victims. It turned into a TenMinuteRetirement, and he came back in season 8. In season 8's finale, Mac was shot by a drug store robber and spent the episode in a NearDeathExperience, in another finale. The show will be back for awas renewed for a 9th season, which ends up being the last.

* As ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' is an origin story for the familiar ComicBook/{{Batman}} mythos we all know and love, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Season 3 finale is the final episode of the series -- all the {{Canon Foreigner}}s are KilledOffForReal or revealed to have been a CanonCharacterAllAlong, Penguin not only retakes his spot as Gotham's top crime boss but also opens his famous Iceberg Lounge, Gordon is more determined than ever to be the cop Gotham needs (setting him up for his role as {{The Commissioner|Gordon}}), Selina is taking her first steps towards becoming ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}, and in the final scene, Bruce is on his first outing as a vigilante (complete with proto-Batsuit. However, the show had already been renewed for a fourth season by the time the episode aired.

** The Season 4 finale, "Take This Ed and Shove It", said that the entire series was [[AllJustADream all just memories]] being remembered by Eddy in his old age. Season 5 then came along and retconned this, while also having its own Fauxnale titled "A Fistful of Ed", in which the Eds finally end an episode being fully content. This was followed by two more episodes, before the story was definitively wrapped up in [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddysBigPictureShow the movie]].

** The finale episode of the second season, "Light in the Darkness", has become ''another'' example of this trope, as it was made before Nick commissioned the following 2 seasons. As such, [[spoiler: we learn the origin of the Avatar, which ties in to the present threat, which bonds with a human host to create a DARK Avatar that DESTROYS the Avatar spirit and breaks the whole cycle. Korra's own human spirit then has an epic battle with the Dark Avatar, destroying him and reclaiming her Avatar spirit, but now being the first Avatar in a new cycle. She then decides to keep the portals to the Spirit World open, changing the Avatar's role in the world and ushering in a new age.]] It feels very conclusive to the series and the ''Avatar'' franchise as a whole, but it was not to be. (And that's probably a good thing, as it's considered [[SophomoreSlump the worst season]] of ''Korra'' by a wide margin.

* ''Film/BeneathThePlanetOfTheApes'' was originally meant to be the final entry in the series, [[spoiler: which is why it ends with Earth being blown up by a nuclear weapon]]. However, the producers wanted to squeeze more money out of what had become a CashCowFranchise, and decided to continue the series by [[spoiler: using time travel to take the surviving protagonists back to the period before the apes took over]].
