Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TwinPeaks'': While death tends to be final for most characters, the supernatural elements of the show do allow some characters to either stay alive in one form or another or continue to exist as a type of spirit. Philip Jeffries, Laura Palmer, and Leland Palmer all manage to stay around in one way or another. The same cannot be said for Windom Earle who's confrontation with Cooper ends with BOB taking Earle's soul. While Cooper and Annie make it out, Earle is definitively dead.

* When the actor playing the part dies in real life, it ''usually'' [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim means the character dies as well]]. In supernatural settings, there is often an explanation why they can't be brought back.
* ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' has Daniel Dickinson, Pete and Myka's former boss and friend, killed early in Season 2. The BigBad of Seasons 1, James [=MacPherson=], is killed in the Season 2 premiere. Benedict Valda performs a HeroicSacrifice in Season 2. Finally, Leena in Season 4.
* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' has killed off a number of characters over the years, most jarring being Derek "[=McDreamy=]" Shepherd himself (hit by a truck and then misdiagnosed), but also George O'Malley (hit by a bus), Mark "[=McSteamy=]" Sloan and Meredith's half-sister Lexie (plane crash). Others include Meredith's mom and Richard's first wife.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' - Even if some of them do appear afterwards (through flashbacks, time travel, and the sort), the Winchesters' mother Mary, their father John, Sam's girlfriend Jess, Ash, all the psychic children in the Second Season Finale, Azazel, Bela (WordOfGod that she's never coming back), Pamela, Lilith, Ruby, Ellen and Jo Harvelle, Zachariah, Gabriel, Rufus, Balthazar, Raphael, Bobby Singer, Meg, Anna, and Tessa all die for real.
** Actually, Word of God is that Gabriel is (somehow) still alive. Whether he'll be back or not is anyone's guess.

* Not many major heroes stay dead in the ''Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}'', but many of the villains have been killed off... often by the heroes.

* ''Series/{{Mash}}'': When [=McLean=] Stevenson left the series and declared he was never coming back, the writers took advantage by having his character, Col. Henry Blake, [[McLeaned be killed when the airplane]] he was a passenger in -- tragically, Blake was on his way home, having served his time -- is shot down. The moment Blake's death is revealed (in the Season 3 finale) was one of the most pin-dropping moments in television to that time.



* Mr. Hooper of ''Series/SesameStreet'' is a famous example of this in a children's show. This was their way of dealing [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim the death of Mr. Hooper's actor]] WillLee.

* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' has two of the main characters ending up dead. Kate is shot in the head by a sniper, and Ziva is killed by a mortar strike off-screen, some time after she leaves NCIS and returns to Israel. There are also Gibbs's former mentor (stabbed by a serial killer) and one of his ex-wives (shot in the head by sniper in a manner deliberately mirroring Kate's death). There were also Ziva's father and Leon's wife (both killed in a drive-by), as well as Jennifer (killed in a shoot-out with a hit squad).

* More of a dark meta-humor, but unlike other once cult franchises ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' properly stays dead after ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' release. One of the reasons it keeps such an iconic status.
