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.

Ms DePablo, I know why you left & I can emphasize with your plight. The show has really gone down hill since you left. I realize you want to start a family, but at some point couldn't you make guest appearances . You really boosted that show from when you first came on it. You are not only beautiful but you are a great actress. A really rare combination.

She didn't leave to start a family. She left because of failed contract negotiations between her and the show runners.

She left because of failed contract negotiations between her and the CBS show runners. So she walked away on her terms. The negotiations lasted for months, so they were fully aware that she might not sign the contract. They should have been prepared for that scenario but weren't. Although they were quite prepared to put all the blame for their present situation on Cote every chance they could by saying they threw money at her, and then more money. But it wasn't only about money!
