The exits of main characters on fan-favorite shows are always the most disappointing and often most emotional episodes. Although many stars give lots of warning when they decide to move on from hit series, there have been many other times when their departure has been completely abrupt, and sometimes they weren’t even given proper sendoffs. Here are sudden TV character exits that we never saw coming:
35. Jon Seda – Chicago P.D.
The Chicago series have seen more than their fair share of stars coming and going, and then Chicago P.D. had to say goodbye to Jon Seda. In July 2019 it was reported that Seda, who played Detective Antonio Dawson, would not be returning as a series regular. Reports indicated that “Seda’s character on Chicago P.D. had played out,” according to Deadline. His abrupt exit made it unclear how they were going to explain his character’s absence as fans were left reeling from the sudden exit.
