* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' foreshadows a lot of events early on. There's the obvious, like Grunkle Stan retreating into a secret base at the end of the first episode. But there are also more hidden things, such as various background elements having the Eye of Providence [[spoiler:hinting at the constant presence of the BigBad, Bill Cipher]], Grunkle Stan's "STNLYMBL" license plate [[spoiler:hinting at his true identity]], and a multitude of repetitive imagery ([[spoiler:Why is Grunkle Stan shown as being on fire or dead so many times...?]]) That is to say nothing of opening sequence itself, which also includes hints to future plot points, like the Zodiac Ten or [[spoiler:the effects that the multidimensional portal has on gravity]].

Often overlaps with DoingItForTheArt. Compare DevelopersForesighg for the video game equivalent, and contrast TruthInTelevision {{Indy Ploy}}s and WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants for when they have almost ''no'' idea where things may lead to, leading to TheChrisCarterEffect.

Producers and the Creative Talent 'behind' the show are the key here. This trope does NOT concern the in-universe or in-story examples of characters planning things out to a ridiculous degree.

* ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Star Trek: DS9]]'' introduced the idea of the Dominion in a Ferengi episode (''[=DS9=]'' for 'joke episode'). The Dominion turn out to be the main villain after the next season until the end of the show. In the extras, the producers even say they did this intentionally.

** Damar was introduced in Season 4 as one of Dukat's officers who had barely more lines than an extra, which, according to the ''[=DS9=] Companion'', confused actor Casey Biggs until the producers reassured him that they had "big plans" for his character. It took an entire season and a half more before he even rose to the level of "supporting character," but he ended up being crucial to the overarching plotlines of the last two seasons.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/CatchTwentyTwo'' is one of the best examples of this. The book doesn't follow a linear progression of time. Instead, the narration jumps forward and backward constantly, which can be very confusing to the reader, especially since there is not a single date mentioned ever. The only way to tell when an event described happened is by how many missions the protagonist had flown at the time. Despite the convoluted narration format and the fact that the book features over 20 important characters, there isn't a single Main/PlotHole in the story. The writer famously kept [[https://biblioklept.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/heller.jpg a detailed graph]] to keep track of the timeline and each character's actions while writing the book, which took him 10 years.

* Another Creator/JossWhedon example: The season 4 of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', "Restless", contained much foreshadowing for the seasons to come and season 3 had Faith count down the days leading to [[spoiler: Buffy's death]] two years before it happened. Joss also arranged for every season finale of the show to provide some kind of closure just in case the show failed to get renewed.

Joss also arranged for every season finale of the show to provide some kind of closure just in case the show failed to get renewed. Willow's famous line "I think I'm kind of gay" from Season 3 is actually not an example - as Willow entering a lesbian relationship became a ThrowItIn during Season 4 and the other line was just a fun coincidence.




to:

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'':
** The second episode makes an offhand reference to Emma staying in Tallahasse for a while - a full season before it's revealed that Emma lived there with Henry's father.
** David Anders signed on after being told his character was really [[spoiler: Dr Frankenstein]], which wasn't revealed until early Season 2. Meghan Ory was likewise told that [[spoiler: Red would turn out to be the wolf]] long before it actually happened on the show.
** Maid Marian appears briefly in Robin Hood's debut episode in Season 2 only from far away. She doesn't appear again until a surprise twist [[spoiler: in the Season 3 finale]]. She's played by the same actress, meaning eagle-eyed viewers could have guessed the twist simply by re-watching the episode "Lacey".
