** And they did it again in Season 5. This time the character that died was Jenny Shepard, at the end of the first half of the two-part finale. [[spoiler: Shepard, however, died in a blaze of glory, taking down ''all'' of the bad guys with her. All the grizzled {{Badass}}, Mike Franks(whom Shepard had asked for help), wound up doing was finish off two of the badguys who were bleeding out.]]

* Around the middle of the second season, a promo for ''Series/TheJoeSchmoShow'' (a parody of reality shows) promised viewers "We've laughed with them, cried with them, and on the next episode ''one of them is going to die.''" This turned out to be the frog Everett, who was killed off in the storyline by the falcon Montecore. This later resulted in Bryce, the stalker, killing the falcon off-screen as the frog was his, left in the RealityTVShowMansion after he had been booted off, but before he was invited to come back. Of course, since the whole thing was a parody, both falcon and frog were revealed to be just fine in the ending.

* ''BeverlyHills90210'' had a memorable example in the second season when we were told an original character would be killed off, and of course it turned out to be David Silver's friend Scott Scanlon.

* ''BreakoutKings'' [[SubvertedTrope subverted this]] so many times that it became annoying. When the commercials for Season 2 began to air, this was the ''only'' thing they talked about. But the creators threw a curve ball and actually ''did'' kill off one of the main characters, proving to everyone that they do have the balls to have someone KilledOffForReal.

* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' parodied this. Before the opening credits, [[Creator/RonHoward the Narrator]] announces that "one of these characters will die," while every main character flashes on screen, as well as an old lady who is unique to the episode. However, about halfway through the episode, the Narrator [[OhAndXDies simply tells the audience]] that she is the one who's going to die:

* ''ShortlandStreet'', after playing it straight through many previous deaths of major and minor characters, [[SubvertedTrope subverted this]] in 2008 when one episode ended with several of the characters seemingly falling victim to a shootout in the {{Cliffhanger}}. The OnTheNext promo immediately following the episode announced that there would be three casualties. Naturally many fans assumed that there would be three deaths, until the actual definition of casualties was pointed out. Sure enough nobody died.

** Another interesting thing to note is that when they started filming season 4, they hadn't actually yet decided who would be in the grave. This is just one of the reasons why fans were unhappy with the result.

** In Series 9, "Face the Raven"'s official summary noted that one of the characters who went into the trap street would not leave it alive. The options were Rigsy, a character who had made one appearance the previous season, Clara Oswald, the current companion, and the Doctor himself. The official trailer and a ''Graham Norton Show'' interview with Peter Capaldi went on to strongly suggest the death would be Clara's, which would mark the first companion getting KilledOffForReal since Adric in 1982's "Earthshock". She did indeed die, but unlike Adric and contrary to Moffat's LyingCreator claims she ''still'' appeared in the final two episodes of the season that followed -- because the Doctor had a '''massive''' SanitySlippage and attempted to defy a fixed point in time to bring her back. In the end, Clara's death still stood, but she became able to have a near-infinite number of new adventures within the very last moment of her life (and a TARDIS of her own) thanks to the Doctor's TragicDream.
