Shows that ended on cliffhangers. My biggest tv pet peeve... Feel free to let me know any shows I missed in the comments! I want this one to become a community list!

Shows to Boycott

Fabulous list, Elise! I am so glad you decided to make this one! Yay! : )

I've got ten mins to get out the door, I'll have more shows tomorrow but off the top of my head can I add Standoff? I *loved* that show and the ending just sucked. Also, The Booth at the End. No resolution just makes me not want to start any new shows!

This'll be a great list with more shows to follow, lots of comments about shows that we all know are forever in limbo.

I am so bummed about Ransom, glad to see it and other faves on the list. I know this list will take off and/or surpass my 'Oh no, they canceled this show. Why? Why? How could they?' list. They each complement one other, so that's really great! : )

Cliffhangers are the worst, ugh. Great list, much needed! May it go from strength to strength! : )

I've added them both, thanks so much! Agent Carter's on my list of shows to watch (if I can just find it streaming...). I completely forgot about the cliffhanger ending to secrets and lies, but that was an awful one!

Excellent list! I will know what not to watch now :-)
SGU: Stargate Universe, Taxi Brooklyn , The Divide & Transporter: The Series all ended on cliffhangers. These are all I can think of at the moment, but I'm sure I'll be back!

Those have been added! Some of these shows are still worth watching, even with the cliffhanger ending, because they're really good. Forever, for example is one of the best shows I've ever watched.

I'll add 'Forever' to my tracker list, thanks for the recommendation @Elise Favia! I'm really sorry it ended on a cliffhanger. Sometimes, as @Old_Maid said, knowing a show ends on a cliffhanger let's you know what *not* to watch (and thanks to this list I have lots to avoid). Although, sometimes, as you said, if you know going in that's it's going to end that way, you can be prepared for the inevitable yet still love the show. I do wish they'd just respect us viewers a smidge more and pay for a wrap-up of every show.

I keep forgetting shows with cliffhangers, maybe this has been added already but, even though I didn't watch it, my husband did, and he was crushed by the 'non-ending ending' ofThe Sopranos.

Ooh, plus The Whispers, ugh. Such a good show, cliffhangers galore in the finale and only one season. :/
