* ''{{Weeds}}'' contains over-arcing storylines, although they aren't necessarily clearly-defined between seasons, and they sometimes aren't so much resolved as they are escaped from. This gives it a quality of drifting from situation to situation that fits its stoner subject matter, while characters from unresolved plotlines sometimes resurface later.
* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'' has an arc that started from the final episode of Season 4, titled ''iOMG'' and continues in the first four episodes of Season 5, dealing with Sam's feelings for Freddie. Notable in being one of the only examples of a KidCom having a StoryArc, especially for the big two of DisneyChannel and {{Nickelodeon}}.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' often premieres new episodes in week-long events called "Steven Bombs" that form mini-arcs that either concern the overarching MythArc or character relationships, such as the first one dealing with the oncoming approach of [[PlanetLooters Homeworld Gems]] or the third one dealing with a loss of trust within the team after it's discovered that Pearl has been manipulating Garnet. In turn, the episodes are divided into "shapes". With each shape having a different arc, as confirmed by one of the writers [[http://ben-levin.tumblr.com/post/115369126820/would-it-be-reasonable-to-assume-that-season-2-is here.]]

** Season 12 has a loose arc where all of the adventures take place in the same area of space but at different times, with the exception of Pertwee-era hangover "Robot" and the WhamEpisode "Genesis of the Daleks".

** Season 12 has a loose arc where all was an experiment at more arc-based plotting, as an attempt at RevisitingTheRoots. This was done by having the Doctor lose access to his TARDIS for much of the adventures take place season, instead relying on various teleporters or personal time travel devices to move him about, which gives a stronger continuity between stories. On top of that, every story in the same area of space but at different times, season takes place either on Earth or the Nerva Beacon orbiting Earth, with the exception of Pertwee-era hangover "Robot" and the WhamEpisode "Genesis of the Daleks".

* The Film/JamesBond series does this twice. The first arc is the SPECTRE Arc, which lasted from the first movie, ''Film/DrNo'' (1962), until the seventh, ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'' (1971). The second encompasses DanielCraig's run as Bond, with ''{{Film/Spectre}}'' continuing the [[AbortedArc arc left hanging]] by ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' and ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', while also following the events of ''{{Film/Skyfall}}''.
** A miniature arc mostly within the first SPECTRE arc involves the [[TearJerker death of Tracy Bond]] and Bond's RoaringRampageOfRevenge after it: ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService'', ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'', and ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly''.
