Unsolved Mysteries: 24 TV Cliffhangers

by | August 30, 2016 | Comments

Rotten Tomatoes looks at 24 unresolved TV cliffhangers, ranging from poisoned presidents to adrift interstellar spaceships. We couldn’t possibly solve these mysteries. Can YOU?


  • DANIELL LEE

    TRUMP 2016

    • Jeannine Brenna

      Yes, we’re hoping that story ends without explanation, just drifts away….

  • John Holloway

    I still don’t know if I missed the final episode of “Continuum”???

  • Malleable 69

    Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was actually one of my all time favorite TV series. It just got better and better each episode. When they cancelled it I went on a Fox rant for a week. They get the best series and find some way to screw them up and cancel them – Firefly anyone.

    The Shield really should be on this list.

  • Blakeney

    I’d also like to mention The Player. Alex Kane is a security expert in Las Vegas. While searching for clues to his wife’s murder, he is recruited as a Player for a mysterious high-stakes gambling organization that bets on whether he can save the day for each mission he goes on. Wesley Snipes plays The Pit Boss, Kane’s new employer and Charity Wakefield plays The Dealer, Kane’s link to information and technical help. Things intensify why the FBI takes an interest and Alex finds out his dead wife might not be so dead after all…some great questions but we never got to know the answers thanks to early cancellation.

    And don’t even get me started on Now and Again. I”m still waiting to see how that turned out.

    • Jeannine Brenna

      I liked both of those shows. I need to stop liking shows, they always disappear without a trace.

  • Doodlee Pigvirus

    they should have included the superior 2009-2011 V series that ended in a cliffhanger, instead.

  • Steve O’Rourke

    LOST: “They call me Hurley, but I’m not going to tell you why.” Unless I missed an episode, that’s one secret we’ll never know the answer to.

  • LoneDragon

    Is there an actual article here that I am somehow missing? All I see are 15 pictures.
    But I was definitely upset about Terminator, Duckman and Exo-Squad.

  • MHC

    I’m getting a slide-show but no text.

  • Ray Rardin

    How about Magnum P.I. and the Higgins/Robin Masters unsolved mystery.
