It never bodes well for popular TV series when one of its stars, or sometimes several, exit the show before it is over. Luckily, many of those series have been able to move forward without some of its stars, but thankfully quite a few of them made the time to make one last appearance on the series. It is hard to wrap up a beloved and long-running series without all of the stars, and out of loyalty to the show and of course the passionate fans, here are 12 TV shows that managed to bring back their former stars for the series finale:
After almost six seasons starring as Dr. Allison Cameron on House, actress Jennifer Morrison exited the series. Although she went on to appear in other fan favorite series such as How I Met Your Mother, and of course star in Once Upon a Time, her character was a pretty big loss for House. Luckily, Morrison made time to appear in the series finale episode “Everybody Dies” in 2012. She and Kal Penn, who exited the show in 2009, appeared as visions that Dr. House had as he struggled to decide if life was worth living.
