The Resolution Will Not Be Identified
Some TV stations and programs (particularly those catering to children) will not hint at the finale of a series on the network at all. In some cases, they air the finale without referring to it as such. Other times, the last episode of a show will end with something like, "See you next time," despite the end of the show having been established in other media, such as newspapers.

This usually happens with TV shows that will be rerun by the channels that first aired them. Of course, if you're young and this happens, maybe the network thinks you're too young to notice. They may also believe that if no new episodes air of your favorite show, you might not want to watch their network anymore.

Alternatively, a show that's been Screwed by the Network may not have been planned to have been cancelled, thus giving no time to plan for a final episode.

The trope was named after Gil Scott Heron's The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.
