25 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 miss her, that new one doesn't fit in with them. It's like having a teenager working with adults. At least Ziva was some what more believable.

Ziva never did it for me and the woman on NCIS LA (the younger one not Heddy) has nothing in the talent dept (or looks dept for that matter and I think her relationship with what's his face see how impressed I am with the show is stupid as are the two characters. Heddy is the best actor on the show.

I like Ziva, but I like the team and I don't think I would stop watching the show. They were
there before Ziva came along. She needed a change and she took it. Now if Abby left. I'd
grieve.

I agree, NCIS is not the same with Ziva. Not only was she fluent in multiple languages, but her mind was sharp and the way she twisted sayings around when she spoke, left you laughing. The banter between her and Tony were just so funny. She was a character to be reckoned with. I believe I read when she decided to leave the show, that she wanted to spread her wings and do what she really likes....singing. I don't know how successful that has been or if she is on the "club circuit" back in L.A. but I wish her luck. Perhaps the strenuous work schedule got to her after all those years...who knows. However, they would welcome her back with arms opened wide if she ever decided to return. That twit that they have taking her place, just doesn't cut it. The show is still great, but it has somehow lost its zest with all of the antics the team would pull. I would rather NCIS let the other replacement go and just have it be them and Abbey in the lab. Point being, I can't even remember her name she is so bad!

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!
