* Horse-riding fan Kaley Cuoco managed to break one of her legs in a riding accident during production on ''Series/EightSimpleRules'' AND ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''; this is why she spends a few episodes of the former wearing a cast and why she... [[AbsenteeActor doesn't appear at all]] in a few episodes of the latter. When she returned, she spent several episodes working at the restaurant as a bartender rather than a waitress so she wouldn't have to walk around.

* Before filming began for the the 11th season of ''NYPDBlue'', Charlotte Ross got pregnant, which made things difficult since her character Connie [=McDowell=] had previously been established as infertile due to complications from a teen pregnancy. The writers got around this with a rather mild retcon, revealing that her doctor previously told her it would be ''almost'' impossible for her to get pregnant.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Mom}}'' took a similar approach to ''Frasier'' when Jaime Pressley became pregnant with twins in 2017. Her character became involved in a custody battle for her foster child and the stress caused her to experience a massive weight gain. She later went to a spa to get her life back on track.
* Angelique Cabral became pregnant just before the third season of ''Series/LifeInPieces''. Fortunately, it was easy to write her out during her maternity leave since her character had been injured in a fall in the previous season's finale, so she spent the premiere in traction. Also, the very nature of the show [[note]] The episodes are divided into vignettes in which not all characters appear. [[/note]] made it easy to just not feature her during her maternity leave. On top of this, there was also a dream sequence in which her character was pregnant.

* ''Radio/TheGoonShow'' was thrown into disarray by the sudden mental illness of star and writer SpikeMilligan. with Milligan out for an indeterminate length of time, other British character actors and impressionists such as Creator/EricSykes and Dick Emery were called in to cover his vocal parts. As Milligan's illness progressed, Sykes and other writers from the BBC's talent pool tried their hand at writing scripts. The BBC went to great lengths to prevent the end of their most popular programme, and the makeshifts held until Milligan was well enough to return.
