* ''Manga/OnePiece'' rarely takes longer hiatuses (among the few examples are one month's hiatus before the TimeSkip and a couple of weeks when Oda was admitted to hospital), but it has become rather well-known for taking many more breaks than most of the other big shonen series. Currently, it is usually on break every fourth or fifth week (sometimes even more often). Sometimes it's because Oda is doing research, but other times no reason is given. Fans like joke that the hiatuses are to spend more time with his rather attractive wife.

** The Omegapause, the current pause which started in July 2015. Hussie currently expects this to be the last pause before ''Homestuck'' is completed, but he is known to have been wrong on this matter. His current prediction is for it to end on April 2016, which would also make it one of the longest hiatuses.

** Series 10 was pushed back to Spring 2017 from the originally planned Fall 2016 by Creator/TheBBC. The official explanation is to position the final season with Creator/StevenMoffat as showrunner as "event television" and to keep it from being overshadowed by such live events as the 2016 Summer Olympics. As a result of this delay, the only new episodes airing between Series 9 and 10 are the annual {{Christmas Episode}}s in 2015 and '16.

* ''Webcomic/FluffyBunnyDomination'' recently went on a 5 week hiatus. Time will tell if it is permanent or not.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' has been known to have long gaps in between updates, especially when The Brothers Chaps were working on the video game. Notably, the series has been plagued with a dead period from December 22, 2010 to July 18, 2013; a period of two and a half years without a single flash cartoon, and it's debatable whether the hiatus has been officially broken yet, as the months immediately before and after that have been very, very scarce in new content.
** A new email IS coming, however, [[http://twitter.com/#!/ronginald/statuses/174295231376785409 someday, when we're not expecting it]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': The show's broadcast schedule became rather erratic following the first half of season one. There have been numerous hiatuses, as well as "bombs"óweeks where there would be one new episode a day (generally preceded and followed by lengthy hiatuses). The odd schedule also means that there have only been very short or even nonexistent season breaks.

* The best known cases in print comics were the more-than-yearlong breaks taken by [[ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}} Garry Trudeau]] in 1983 and [[ComicStrip/TheFarSide Gary Larson]] in 1989, and the shorter breaks taken by [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Bill Watterson]] in 1991 and 1994 and [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charles Schulz]] in late 1997. In the business, these are known as "sabbaticals".
** Trudeau has gone on week-long vacations every now and then since the long break, with reruns being published in place. He also took a 3-month break in 2008. ''Doonsbury'' has been on "long-term hiatus" since Feb. 2014, due to Trudeau focusing his energies on ''Series/AlphaHouse'' (Sunday strips are new).
* Tom Pappalardo published the comic strip ''Whiskey! Tango! Foxtrot!'' from 2007-2008, took a year off, and returned in 2010 with a retooled layout, renaming it ''TheOptimist''.

* As of TheNewTens, it has become a very common practice in the anime industry to use the "split-cour" airing schedule, meaning a show will air its first half in one season, take a break the next season, and air the second half in the season after that. This used to be very rarely done before 2011 (and back then, it was more common for the shows that did this to take year long breaks but at least have 24-26 episode seasons to compensate, such as ''Anime/CodeGeass'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', rather than 12-13), but split-cours are practically industry standard now. Some notable examples include shows like ''LightNovel/FateZero'', ''Anime/AldnoahZero'', ''Manga/SnowWhiteWithTheRedHair'', ''Literature/{{Gate}}'', and the second season of ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' (which split its second season into [[UpToEleven three cours!]]).



* After the first half of ''Literature/{{Gate}}'' Season 1 aired in 2015, the series took a break and will resume in January 2016.
