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?

Ziva should have appeared at the wake and funeral of Gibbs Dad
that would have told us that there is an offering....but she didn't appear

Now, wait a minute. I loved the actress who played Ziva and I miss her every much of the rest of you BUT! I still like the theme of the story line--the relationship of the characters. They work together, care for each other, it is very "family" oriented, I know--it's guns, killing, intrigue, but the characters are in a working situation and they care for each other. Today that means something. They are not out to cut one an others throat for a higher position or the like. I like all the cast and the story line and how it's carried out. I didn't watch it only because of the Ziva character, I like the whole cast, story line and how it's portrayed.

when she announced her exit from NCIS without notice CBS offered her a massive RAISE....she declined....they will take her back but as time goes by the chance of that dims from the future

It wasn't only about money! You should do some research. And it wasn't without notice. She and CBS show runners were in contract negotiations for months, which came to an impasse. CBS should have been prepared for the fact that she didn't want to sign the contract (according to their terms), so she left on her terms. They obviously didn't value her as much as they valued Michael Weatherly, who got everything he wanted on the signing of his contract.

I too love The Character "Ziva". The only problem for me, is how to resurrect her back into an active Agent with NCIS.? One of Gibbs rules. Do not to get emotionally involved with a colleague. In this case Tony Denozo. Yes, I secretly wanted Tony to kiss Ziva. Mentally thinking it was I. She is gorgeous. Especially when she dresses up. Like the scene where she is a Singer in that Green Dress. Showing those most becoming dimples on her lower back. Just above her butt. Most sexy ever. Yes, I agree Ms Johnson. Bring Ziva back. Get rid of the blonde character who never sits in a chair. Or at least make her a "Red Head". Spice it up for Gibbs and Tobias of the FBI character.

You're absolutely right! They've already lost upwards of 3 million viewers - let's see how they do with a few more. The show runners are playing hardball and trying to put all of the blame for the situation (which they created) on Cote.

Bring Ziva BACK. I have lost interest in watching NCIS without Ziva. You should have offered Ziva a decent salary or whatever she wanted to keep her there.

ONCE AND FOR ALL, ZIVA LEFT ON HER OWN ACCORD TO FOLLOW OTHER INTERESTS. NO ONE FROM THE PROGRAM WANTED HER TO LEAVE!!!! IT WAS HER OWN CHOOSING, WHICH I RESPECT, ALTHOUGH I TOO MISS HER ON NCIS. (the capitals are on purpose for all those who still can't face the fact that Ziva left on her own accord)) I'm tired of people still blaming the show and the station!
