13 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 with TV season in a bit of a lull at the moment (darn you, Winter Olympics!), this seemed like an ideal time to take stock of characters we've lost over the past few months.

From biker wives to surgical interns, community college students to misguided witches, here is a look at a handful 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?

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!

Ziva's personality, not the PART she played is what made the Program GREAT.
The Program lost interest for a big audience, they have to bring in someone as strong willed and attractive as Ziva, the blond playing the part now is just a fill in that is detracting from the Program

Ziva was great! The new person has big shoes to fill but we need to give her a chance. I wish they could bring back Kate Todd's sister. Perhaps NCIS has ran it's course but there are just not that many shows I can watch anymore.

Ziva was the best, I don't know why they let her go, if it was money they should have paid her. The show hasn't been the same without her. I record it but not as interested in it as I once was. Bring her back.

Zive, on NCIS, was an inspiration, multilingual, intelligent, self-defense expect, political minded, simple looking, but exotic and beautiful. Please give her want she wants and return her to us.

I am not enjoying NCIS anymore since Ziva left. The new choice, replacing Ziva, is a bad decision. I know that many of my friends feel the same way. Hopefully, you guys decide to bring her back because she really fits into NCIS better than the present actress. Sofar, I am not watching the show at all!

I completely agree. This new character adds absolutely nothing to the show. I tried to give the character a chance, given how much I grew to like Ziva, after I was appalled about them killing off Kate. But It's just not happening for me. It's nothing against the actress; they haven't given her a good role. I no longer go out of my way to watch it either. I'm so disappointed, I loved that show!
