Cliffhanger is when something ends abruptly without resolving the issue. This is frequently seen in television shows (usually between seasons or episodes) and fanworks (usually between chapters when an author wants to hear feedback), although it has also been seen in a few films as well.
Fanfiction reviewers sometimes refer to cliffhangers as 'cliffies as in, "Oh you horrible person, you. Another cliffie!?"
