* Sonny and Chad in ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'' danced around their obvious attraction to each other, and the Season 1 finale seemed to indicate that movement was happening. Season 2 has brought on this, and a lot more ShipTease. TheyDo.

With Demi Lovato leaving the show due to personal issues it looks like they didn't.

Added DiffLines:
* Sonny {{Awkward}} is basically entirely based on the relationship between Jenna and Chad in ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'' danced around their obvious attraction to each other, Matty. * FakingIt has Amy and the Karma. The Season 1 finale seemed to indicate that movement was happening. Season 2 has brought on this, and a lot more ShipTease. TheyDo.Karma reject Amy, but it's still unresolved.

* Ant-Man and Wasp in ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''. Three attempts he made during the first season to confess his love for her didn't go as planned, and [[spoiler: his quitting the Avengers further harmed their chances of starting a relationship]].

See also AlmostKiss, RelationshipUpgrade, LikeBrotherAndSister, MomentKiller, EveryoneCanSeeIt. When a series ends without even a [[MaybeEverAfter hint of resolution]] to will-they-or-won't-they, it's NoRomanticResolution. Contrast FriendsWithBenefits, where they ''definitely'' do it, but without the emotional baggage.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': The trope could very well be called "Ross And Rachel", except for the whole thing about not naming tropes after characters. For reference, the Ross/Rachel {{UST}} was introduced in the first five minutes of the PilotEpisode, and not fully resolved until the last five minutes of the GrandFinale. That's right, it was dragged out over ''literally'' the entire series. ** Well, they ended up together in the last moments of the SeriesFinale. They got together in season 2, broke up in season 3, and from that it was an [[RelationshipRevolvingDoor on-again-off-again thing]]. ** Which is fairly amusing seeing as Ross/Rachel was never meant to go beyond the pilot but it was so popular they abandoned their original plan [[note]]Joey/Monica, which got [[DevelopmentGag the occasional reference of Monica having a crush on Joey when he moved in]][[/note]] . So the show's longest plot was almost the one that never was.

* The sneaky bastards behind ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' took a different approach to this regarding the [[ShipToShipCombat Nanoha-related ships]] by [[TimeSkip jumping ten years forward]] then cranking the ShipTease all the way to the max [[ShrugOfGod without saying anything definite]]. Suddenly, the question mutated from "Will They Or Won't They?" to "DidTheyOrDidntThey?"

* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Rumiko Takahashi just loves this trope. Nothing is ''really'' resolved until the very end when [[spoiler:Kagome marries Inuyasha and Sango marries Miroku]].

* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Rumiko Takahashi just loves this trope. Nothing is ''really'' resolved until the very end when [[spoiler:Kagome marries Inuyasha and Sango marries Miroku]]. To be fair, Miroku and Sango officially declare their commitment to each other before the end, although this is still done very late in the series.

* The Carly/Freddie and Freddie/Sam pairings on ''Series/ICarly'' averted this. Carly and Freddie got together in ''iSaved Your Life'' then broke up at the end, and then Sam and Freddie got together in ''iLose My Mind'', which was 1 episode and 3 days in-universe after Sam revealed her feelings for Freddie in ''iOMG''. Whilst both sides had some obvious ShipTease, it was never UnresolvedSexualTension as neither couple could really qualifiy since Freddie liked Carly but she didn't like him back until ''iSaved Your Life'', and Freddie didn't like Sam until ''iLose My Mind'', and Sam had shown no indications she liked Freddie until ''iOMG''.
