21 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?

I hated it when Kate was killed off! I LOOKED FORWard to watching Zeva and all her abilities to play that part. Kept hoping, DeNozzo and her would get it on! Or Gibbs and her, she is one hot woman, I look forward to seeing her act, with BOND,Daniel Craig. Wow! The NCIS producers a4 really disappointing their fans, pay her more than Weatherly,please get her back! Come on Gibbs!

Ziva is not missed by the vast majority of NCIS fans. Cote chose to quit. I personally found the character annoying as she was turning into a major Mary Sue & I found the character grating. Also Cote was offered a lot of money to reconsider her choice but said no. So good riddance to her. I much preferred Kate to Ziva anyway. At least the new character is not good at everything & will over time win the haters over. NCIS is not the Ziva show folks - so get a grip & get over it.

You've got to be kidding.....? Oh, you must be one of those "zivahaters". But the real Mary Sue here is that horrible Bishop character who couldn't act her way out of a paper bag to save her life! And she won't win anyone over - what a joke.

Calling me an idiot just because I expressed my opinion, which I think a significant number of fans agree with, but you do not, shows just how immature you are.

Au contraire - I think there are very FEW fans who agree with you.

One person coming or going on NCIS does affect the show. What makes a show a hit is good story telling. This show still has what it takes to get the job done.

No it does not - they're losing more and more fans on a daily basis specifically due to the presence of Bishop. Just check some of the other message boards if you care to.

I'll never forgive Joss Whedon for what he did to Cordelia Chase on Angel, it was totally unnecessary.

What about Col. Henry Blake from Mash?
