29 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.

DID WE MISS ANYONE? WHICH RECENTLY-DEPARTED TELEVISION CHARACTER AR YOU MISSING THE MOST THESE DAYS?

Ziva David. I wish she would come back, she was the best at that desk for sure !!!!!!! She is a great actress and don't know why you let her go. Don't know a good thing when you have it ! You will make so many more viewers happier, bring her back.

Ziva (or Ziver according to Gibbs) was to dark, always moody and secretive, got annoying.

The Ziva replacement does not fit at all. Her mismatched eyebrows and hair color alone keep me from watching NCIS anymore.

I agree Bishop brings nothing to NCIS, she lacks carisma and chemistry with rest of cast. She needs to be replaced if the show is going to keep its top ratings.

I wish CBS would bring back the character of Ziva David. The new character is O.K., but, I liked Ziva much better.
