We study the continuation of solutions of superlinear indefinite parabolic problems after the blow-up time. The nonlinearity is of the form $a(x)u^p$, where $p>1$ is subcritical and $a$ changes sign. Unlike the case $a>0$, the solutions will never blow up completely in the whole domain but only in a certain subdomain. In some cases we give a precise description of this subdomain. We also derive sufficient conditions for the blow-up of the associated energy.
