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?

While I miss Troy a little bit, I miss Pierce equally as much. Hickey's been great, and I'd like to see Abed's gf get more time.
Ziva I don't miss at all, I actually whooped and cheered when I read she'd be leaving, so glad she's gone, so, so, so, happy. Never liked her character. I do wish her dad've lived and they'd have killed her off but oh well.
While Carter was a great character the show's been so good without her, giving more screen time for it's other character's that I hardly miss her, guess it goes to show how good the writers are. Be interesting to see if they bring in someone to replace her eventually.

Of all the Grey's Anatomy characters to 'miss' you chose Heather? What about Mark or Lexi? Izzy or George? Even Addison!

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.
