When it comes to canceling TV characters, Death never goes on hiatus.

The death of a TV character, as in life, can be an anticipated event ("I just can't wait till they kill that bastard off") as in J. R. Ewing from DALLAS (unfortunately the bullet didn't kill him), or can catch us off guard as with the unexpected death of Colonel Henry Blake on M*A*S*H.

Death may also visit because actors get bored with their character's role and wish to leave the series or an actor may be asking too much money for their abilities and be written out of the script [a.k.a. WOOS]; or because the actor's character may be fodder for the scriptwriter's fertile imagination who just wants to kill them off.

Question. Do we have to mourn again for characters when they die in reruns?

The following is a fairly complete list of many of television's popular characters who have passed away into TV Heaven.

"We're all waiting, for what? Fulfillment, love... validation, approval? It's a waste of time. Life is an empty, hollow exercise filled with pain, loss and grief, and the only thing we can expect to achieve in our lives is our own, inevitable death."

-- Dr. Luka Kovac, ER
