32 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.

The Ziva replacement does not fit at all. Her mismatched eyebrows and hair color alone keep me from watching NCIS anymore.

I agree Bishop brings nothing to NCIS, she lacks carisma and chemistry with rest of cast. She needs to be replaced if the show is going to keep its top ratings.

I wish CBS would bring back the character of Ziva David. The new character is O.K., but, I liked Ziva much better.

Ziva quit the show at the last minute leaving the writers, and the fans hanging. She wasn't fired, and she doesn't want top come back. She left us all. F her.

Ziva was a beautiful and stunning la fema fatale. Were the writers correct about any of the conflicts with US FBI, NCIS, CIA and Israel? I enjoyed the series. But, I am not seeing anything like these stories in NY Times or Washington Post.

Ziva should be brought back. I cancelled my recording with the new girl. Not really feeling it. So sorry.

I missed Cote's character "Ziva" starting out, then her fans took over all of the NCIS sites and now I can't stand the character due to their unending and excessive obnoxious whining. It's been over a year people ... she left ... get over it. Even reruns, I just can't do it. I hope she never comes back on the show ... which will probably be the case since she burned bridges upon her abrupt exit.
