One of my favorite TV series, Red Dwarf, a British sci-fi comedy, ended on a cliffhanger more than ten years ago. The reason for this was that one of the actors went to prison for ten years for drug trafficking, two of the actors died (Kochanski and Hollie) , and one of the two creators/writers also died (Robert Grant). Well, the one actor is out of jail, and the remaining creator/writer got all of the remaining actors back together for two more seasons of the show to wrap things up. I've just discovered that Season 10 of Red Dwarf is already halfway through its run. And how was that cliffhanger ending resolved, you ask? Well, it's sort of a running gag in this season that it never was. They just picked up as if it never happened.
Why season 10 when the last season to air was season 8, you ask? Well, there was a made for TV movie that takes place between Season 8 and season 10 called Back To Earth that was rather boring and lame and also didn't explain how the cliffhanger was resolved either. Although, it did have a very entertaining end that spoofed Blade Runner quite badly. This movie is considered by the creator to be season 9.
