Added DiffLines:

* The second season of ''Series/{{Lucifer|2016}}'' was greenlit with 13 episodes, then received an additional 9-episode order a month after the season started (though four of them ended up being moved to the third season). The 13th episode, "A Good Day to Die", has a very climactic season finale feel in it, representing a break between the first half of the season with the second. There is even a TimeSkip between the two.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/{{Fringe}}'' the 13th episode of the first season, "The Transformation", resolves the John Scott arc, and Creator/MarkValley never appears again. The next episode, "Ability", starts the examination of the Olivia's Cortexiphan-related talents.

Added DiffLines:

* The 2nd season of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' follows this format with the first 13 half hours (My New Wand! to Bon Bon the Birthday Clown) ending on a WhamEpisode, the following 8 half hours (Raid the Cave to Starcrushed) following the consequences of said episode, and a half hour of standalone episodes that fall in between in production order ([[HalloweenEpisode Hungry Larry]] and [[LowerDeckEpisode Spider with a Top Hat]]) being deliberately written to be able to premier [[OutOfOrder whenever in the season and still fit]] given the former's Holiday episode status.

Added DiffLines:

* Season 1 of ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'' was originally 13 half hours before being expanded to 20, resulting in the redesigns planned for season 2 to be implemented within season 1.

* ''Series/{{Glee}}'' had a crucial competition win, resolution for several story arcs, and even a traditional kiss in the final scene in its 13th episode. All of the front 13 were produced before airing and have fewer songs. They're also generally considered the show's best episodes by the majority of the fandom

Added DiffLines:
