Many characters in TV shows left the show because of some or the reason. But several characters didn’t just leave the show; they literally disappeared all of a sudden and never came back. Below are 15 times TV shows kicked a crucial character out, and acted like nothing’s changed.
1. Sheri from 13 Reasons Why: Sheri didn’t appear in seasons 3 and 4. And she hardly appeared in seasons 1 and 2. But if she would’ve stayed in the show, her chemistry with Clay may have built up.
2. In Degrassi: The Next Generation, many characters, including Kendra, Dave, Wesley, Terri, Arlene, and Leia, just disappeared, or the actors maybe wanted to move on.
3. In The O.C., Alex and Zach were there to play each other’s love interests, but then suddenly they just disappeared after Season 2.
4. In Saved by the Bell, Jessie’s stepbrother Eric was only seen in one episode. Like where did he go exactly after that!?
5. In Glee, Sue’s baby Robin was hardly seen two times after she was born. Robin was Sue’s daughter, and in fact, Sue was the main character in the show. How did her baby disappear all of a sudden? She barely got any mention in the last two seasons.
