** Tara Lewis (played by Aisha Tyler) fills in for JJ in season eleven when she goes on maternity leave. Unlike Todd, she joins the BAU full time after JJ returns (she was originally planned to be Kate's temporary substitute but Creator/JenniferLoveHewitt decided to leave the show instead of returning in seasom 12, hence Lewis gets PromotedToOpeningCredits in said season after being the FakeGuestStar for every episode of the eleventh season excluding four).

* A rather unique example, also from ''Series/LawAndOrder'': When Jill Hennessey’s character Claire Kincaid made a crossover appearance on ''Series/HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'', conflicting and overlapping production schedules forced producers to [[MakingUseOfTheTwin recruit Jill's identical twin sister Jacqueline]] (a host and occasional actress on Canadian TV) to double for her sister in a few courtroom scenes. This unusual substitution, in the episode "Corpus Delicti," is not credited on-screen.

* ''Series/OurMissBrooks'': In a few episodes (e.g. "Wild Goose"), Mrs. Davis' sister Angela substitutes as Miss Brooks' landlady. Angela was said to be watching over things while Mrs. Davis visited relatives. Jane Morgan, the actress who played Mrs. Davis, suffered a stroke. Fortunately, she made a complete recovery and returned within a few weeks time.

* During filming of the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "[[{{Recap/StarTrekS2E16TheGamestersOfTriskelion}} The Gamesters of Triskelion]]", Creator/GeorgeTakei was busy filming the movie ''Film/TheGreenBerets''. Chekov took his place in the script, with a barroom brawling style in the episode's fight scenes taking the place of the martial arts scenes planned for Sulu.
** Ditto "[[{{Recap/StarTrekS2E15TheTroubleWithTribbles}} The Trouble with Tribbles]]"; Chekov's instant recognition of quadro-triticale made more sense when the script was written for Sulu, as Sulu had an established background in botany.

So in the next episode, the Doctor is knocked out in an injury (played by a double), and his lines (and technical skills) are given to a freedom-fighter character from the story.

* When Kathryn Erbe got pregnant during Season 3 of ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'', the character of G. Lynn Bishop was brought in as a replacement. Erbe was still seen in those episodes, but she stayed behind a desk.



** To be clear, that was really only invoked in "The Mazarin Stone", as Jeremy Brett was (to put it bluntly) dying. In other episodes, Watson does have more of a role, and even some of Holmes' lines (such as the solitary cyclist) - this was not done for Brett's health, but to even the relationship and make it clear he wasn't the bumbling idiot that popular opinion holds so dear.

Martin committed to the filming of ''Theatre/{{Rent}}'' in 2005, his character Ed Green on ''Series/LawAndOrder'' was shot late in the season and spent the remaining four episodes recovering in the hospital. Michael Imperioli took over as Fontana's temporary partner Nick Falco for the duration. Unlike most other out-of-nowhere Temporary Substitute, Falco made an additional appearance the next season in a non-substitute capacity.

** When Kathryn Erbe got pregnant during Season 3 of ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'', the character of G. Lynn Bishop was brought in as a replacement. Unlike most examples, this was actually written into the show well in advance of Bishop's arrival, with the explanation that Erbe's character was acting as a surrogate for her sister and would need a temporary replacement in the later stages of the pregnancy. Erbe was still seen in several of the Bishop episodes, but she stayed behind a desk.



* Variation on ''Series/ForeverKnight'': Some of the scripts originally written with Captain Stonetree in season 1 were stashed away and used with Captain Reese in season 3. The two captains even both have the first name "Joe".

* Amandine Train, Saphir's actrice, was pregnant during the filming of Season 5 of ''Series/{{Noob}}''. However, Saphir also had the important task of [[spoiler:getting Omega Zell ready for high-level play]] during that portion of the story. One episode filmed during the last months of her pregnancy had her use and avatar looking just like Gaea, which made Gaea's actrice play in the in-game scenes while some of her dialog had the camera do SplitScreen between the avatar and her player in front of the computer with only her face visible. Later episodes outright had Saphir need to complete an urgent quest off-screen and call in her sister to take care of her everyday work, including the stuff happening onscreen. The sister in question is also briefly seen in ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions''.

* When Jason David Frank took time off to visit his family in Texas, the producers of the New Zealand-filmed ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' were forced to first trap his character, Tommy Oliver, in Ranger form, and later, render him invisible for two episodes. Since Tommy is a high school science teacher by this point in the franchise, they also had to grab several Substitute Teachers. To make things significantly more interesting, one of the substitutes was the [[JekyllAndHyde human form]] of the BigBad.
