* In ''Series/StrangerThings'', three distinct groups of people (the kids, the sheriff, and Nancy and Johnny) all run around independently trying to figure out what is going on until converging for the Season 1 finale. Each group ends up 'specializing' in a certain area of the investigation. The kids do the most research into the science and idea of The Upside-Down, Nancy and Johnny are mostly dealing with understanding the Demogorgon, and Joyce and Hopper are largely dealing with Eleven's origins.

* ''Series/TheExpanse'' does this with Season 1, as Miller is investigating the disappearance of Julie Mao and finds out that she was part of the crew of the ''Scopuli'', the same ship used as bait for the destruction of the ''Canterbury'', the motive behind which Holden and the other survivors of the ''Cant'' are determined to uncover. These two plot lines run pretty much in tandem but separately for the remainder of the season, until Miller and Holden run into each other at the end of the third to last episode of the season. Oh, and [[ThirdLineSomeWaiting meanwhile]], Avasarala is back on Earth, dealing with the political fallout from the above situation and trying to uncover the mastermind behind it all.
