32 TV Characters We Still Can't Believe Have Left Us

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Some were killed off. Some left because their portrayers wanted off; others because their networks wanted a change.

But the reasons behind their loss does little to dull our pain. We still miss them. We still grieve for them. We still wish things could have been different.

From biker wives to surgical interns, community college students to misguided witches, here is a look at some of men and women who we still can't believe are gone...

Troy Barnes
Donald Glover left Community to pursue his rapping career. He took his beloved character with him.

The only NCIS I find interesting is NCIS Los Angeles. I figure it's probably because it's the diversity of actors on the script. Both NCIS and NCIS New Orleans are rather flat as far as diversity is concerned and hence a bit boring! ------------------------------------ health and wealth

Get over it people! Actors go where they can make the most money so they can afford to buy their biggest houses and fancy Jags and Mercedes! Live with it!

Donald didn't leave to "pursue" his rapping career. He's been rapping since before Community existed

Ziva was the best part of NCIS . she was funny and smart at the same time

Ziva was god but it was her time to move on..... good actors and actresses do not stay too long with one show... when the challenge wears off they are off looking for new challenges... and NCIS has been around too long... it has lost a lot of its appeal and number of viewers.

The show is not about Ziva, if Gibbs left, then that's a horse of a different color,
