* As of the start of season 13 (The show is still ongoing as of the 2016/7 season), only three of the original six cast members of ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' are still on the show. The original cast was Mark Harmon (Gibbs), Michael Weatherly ([=DiNozzo=]), Sasha Alexander (Kate Todd), David [=McCallum=] (Ducky), Pauly Perette (Abby), and Alan Dale (Director Morrow). At the beginning of season 2, Sean Murray ([=McGee=]) was promoted from repeat guest star to the main cast and Brian Dietzen (Palmer) was added as a secondary cast member (eventually getting promoted to main cast status). At the end of season 2, Alexander's character was killed off and Dale's character was written out (occasionally returning as a guest star), and they were replaced by Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) and Lauren Holly (Director Shepherd). Holly's character was killed off at the end of season 5, and was replaced by Rocky Carroll (Director Vance). This cast held steady until the beginning of season 11, when de Pablo left the show, being replaced by Emily Wickersham (Ellie Bishop). Then Weatherly left the show at the end of season 12, being replaced by Jennifer Esposito (Alex Quinn) and Wilmer Valderrama (Nick Torres). And that's not counting the turnover in important recurring characters who have not appeared in the opening credits.

* ''Series/WaterlooRoad'' ran for 200 episodes over ten series for nine years. By the time the final episode aired in 2015, ''all'' of the cast who had begun the show in 2006 had left. In fact, Waterloo Road's cast turnover rate was so high that when the series ended the longest-serving current cast member - Melanie Hill - had only joined three years earlier.

** Its spin-off ''Series/LawAndOrderSVU'' has now, in its 15th season, almost completely overturned its original cast. Only Creator/MariskaHargitay remains as a constant from season one until now; Music/IceT from season two until now. Though unlike its parent program it actually maintained nearly the entirety of its original cast, with the exception of one departure in the second season, for its first twelve seasons.

* Most {{Soap Opera}}s are run on this trope. Since many have been running 40+ years, and people don't want to spend the entirety of their lives on one show, they tend to leave the soap after a few years to pursue alternative employment options. To replace them, either the [[TheOtherDarrin character actors are changed]] or new characters are brought in. This means that the main casts of soaps tend to change drastically every few years. As an example, New Zealand-produced soap opera ''ShortlandStreet'' first aired in 1992, and as of 2011 only one of the original cast members remains (Dr Chris Warner).

** Mario Zagallo won the first four of Brazil's titles (player in 1958 and 1962, coach in 1970, assistant coach in 1994), and his teammate [[TheAce Pelé]] was the only one fielded in the first three. Another Brazilian, Cafu, played in the 1994 and 2002 titles (and is the only man to play three Cup finals), while Ronaldo was in the bench in the former the first and the top goalscorer in the latter.

*** Christie Rampone, who played in five World Cups, has the longest gap between World Cup wins for a player of either sex. In her first World Cup, she was on the 1999 squad, but didn't play in the final. In her last in 2015, with her being the sole holdover from the 1999 champs, she came on as a sub late in the 2015 final with the USWNT safely ahead.
