* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' had a shorter season 3 that would have officially made it a SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon. The finale of season 3 is a MusicalEpisode that [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore changes the status quo]] when main character Twilight Sparkle authors her own magic, [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence Ascends to a Higher Plane of Existence]], and returns as an [[WingedUnicorn alicorn]] [[LateArrivalSpoiler princess]]. It was intended as the series finale when it was written. However, a fourth season of the show and a SpinOff movie were ordered, leading to the episode being rewritten to loosely be the first part in a three-episode arc.

* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' has a similar example to that of ''PrettyCure'''s, with BigBad Pasder being defeated for good in episode 30. Then the Primevals happened. This one's entirely a case of YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle. It had only filled out [[SpoiledByTheFormat half the episodes]] of any ''Anime/BraveSeries'' and made it known by revealing King J-der's lovingly animated design and StockFootage.

* ''Film/SawIII'' was clearly intended to finish the ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' series since it wraps up everything pretty nicely. There was even a box set released of the "Saw Trilogy". A few {{Sequel Hook}}s were added (Jigsaw's brief flashback, as well as the wax-covered tape and Amanda's letter) so that the series could continue. And then the senth film ''Film/Saw3D'' aka ''Saw: the Final Chapter'' was meant to be the last before ''Film/SawLegacy'' was announced.

* Episode 52 of ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' (which is where the original source material of ''Anime/GoLion'', which they dubbed over to make Voltron ran out) has the Voltron Force successfully attack Planet Doom, defeating Zarkon and Lotor, destroying their armies, and freeing all the slaves. Then the American studio that did the dubbing commissioned [[PostScriptSeason twenty more episodes]], which had Planet Doom suddenly become a threat again, featured very bad writing, and ended on an episode that didn't really resolve anything.

** ''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 hapilly ever after. But, it wasn't.

** The second-season finale, "Flashback", is a clip show that was intended to be the final episode (finishing with a "journey continues" ending) after it was cancelled by Creator/{{CBS}}...then it was picked up by {{CTV}} Television and resumed in Canada.

* The third season (2010) of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' ended with the episode "It's Going Down" where Huey foils a fake terrorist attack, and Granddad deciding to move out of his gated community. That was it until the fourth and final season aired in 2014, without Aaron [=McGruder=]'s involvement (though AdultSwim and most viewers [[OldShame pretend that the fourth season]] [[FanonDiscontinuity never happened]], with [adult swim] only airing ''Boondocks'' reruns up to "It's Going Down".

** The last episode of season 11 (hosted by Anjelica Houston and Billy Martin with musical guest GeorgeClinton and Parliament-Funkadelic) was written as the series finale as well, due to the low ratings and terrible reviews the show had gotten during the season. The final scene had everyone in the cast (except for Jon Lovitz) locked in a room that Lorne had set on fire. When the show was given a second chance at life, the final scene (and everything about season 11) was written off as AllJustADream ("...a horrible, horrible dream").

* 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.
