* ''Series/HappyDays'': Of all the regular characters that were billed at one point or another during the series' 11-year-run, just four remained from the first through last seasons: Creator/HenryWinkler (Fonzie), Tom Bosley (Howard Cunningham), Marion Ross (Marion Cunningham) and Anson Williams (Potsie Weber). Two of the other original characters Creator/RonHoward (Richie Cunningham) and Don Most (Ralph Malph) left after the seventh season, while Erin Moran (Joanie Cunningham) briefly left for the 1982-1983 season. Of the remaining characters, we all know what became of {{Chuck Cunningham|Syndrome}}, later addition Scott Baio (as Chachi Arcola) left along with Moran in 1982 but also returned, and various other characters came and went through the years.
* ''Series/SesameStreet'': Much of the cast has rolled over many times, with the exceptions of Caroll Spinney (Big Bird and Oscar), Bob [=McGrath=] (Bob), Loretta Long (Susan) and very occasionally Creator/FrankOz (Bert, Cookie Monster and Grover), who have been there since Day 1 in 1969, although appearances for [=McGrath=] and Long have become less frequent since the mid- to late-2000s, and Oz's characters are almost always played by different performers. Spinney is also becoming less active, as his characters are now puppeteered by different people while he voices them, and occasionally they provide the voices themselves. Aside from them, Emilio Delgado (Luis) and Rosco Orman (Gordon) are by far the longest-tenured actors at 40 or more years.



* Since the original ''Series/{{CSI}}'' premiered in 2000, its later seasons have seen the departure of three of its leads (Grissom, retired, and Catherine, new job, and Ray Langston (who replaced Grissom), forcibly resigned), two of its secondary leads (Sara, quit from PTSD but now back as effective regular, and Warrick, KilledOffForReal) and a number of its recurring supporting roles (Wendy, Sofia, and the very short tenure of Riley, meant to replace Sara). Most of the departures were of the "actor wanting to move on" variety, but contract disputes and in Warrick's case, personal problems, also factored. As of the series' conclusion in 2015, the only actor to be a part of the regular cast for all fifteen seasons was George Eads as Nick Stokes, and this was only because of the show's abrupt cancellation, he was PutOnABus in the finale and would no longer have been with the cast had the show continued. Because of this, he did not appear in the 2-hour GrandFinale, even though Grissom, Catherine, and Brass all did make return appearances.
** Eric Szmanda (Greg Sanders) also deserves a mention. Although he only had a recurring role as a lab tech in the first two seasons, he became a regular cast member in season 3, and remained as such throughout the finale.

* The game show ''Series/FamilyFeud'' has through many hosts. Richard Dawson was the original host from 1976-85, and after a three-year gap, the show was revived from 1988-94 with Ray Combs. Dawson returned for the 1994-95 season. After another hiatus, the show came back in 1999, with the hosting duties going to Louie Anderson (1999-02), Richard Karn (2002-06), John O'Hurley (2006-10), and Steve Harvey (2010-present).
* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' has only 4 of its original 9 main cast members among the ''14'' currently (season 14) listed among the main cast... but there are also 9 actors and actresses that are neither current nor first-season regulars but have nonetheless been regulars at some point. (Though one of them has returned to recurring status in Season 14.)

* ''Series/{{Knots Landing}}'': Michele Lee (Karen) and Ted Shackelford (Gary) were the only actors who were regular cast members for all fourteen seasons, though Joan Van Ark (Valene) was a regular for the first thirteen and returned for the {{Series Finale}}. Lee was the only actor to appear in all 344 episodes.

Lee was the only actor to appear in all 344 episodes.



* The world's longest-running SitCom, the [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] series ''Series/LastOfTheSummerWine'' (1973-2010) went through many major characters over the course of its run. As well as the sheer length of the series, this was because most of the characters were elderly, and so had to be replaced whenever an actor died or became too infirm for regular work.






* ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' is inevitably getting this as the outcome of the show becoming UnCancelled but none of the original cast wants to return to the series.
* As of the start of season 15, 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 13, being replaced by Jennifer Esposito (Alex Quinn) and Wilmer Valderrama (Nick Torres); later that season, Duane Henry (Clayton Reeves) was promoted to the main cast. Esposito's character only lasted one season, being replaced at the start of season 15 by Maria Bello (Jacqueline Sloan), and it's already been reported that Perette will be leaving asst the end of the current season. And that's not counting the turnover in important recurring characters who have not appeared in the opening credits. It is understood among ''NCIS''[='=] fanbase that barring a collapse in its ratings, the series will likely continue so long as Harmon wants to do it.



* ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' has not had a lot of hosting changes: on daytime (1972-present), the only hosting change was Bob Barker to Drew Carey in 2007, while various nighttime incarnations have had Dennis James (1972-77), Bob Barker (1977-80), Tom Kennedy (1985-86), and Doug Davidson (1994-95). However, the announcer post has changed three times (Johnny Olson from 1972-84, Rod Roddy from 1985-2003, Rich Fields from 2004-10, and George Gray from 2011 onward, plus Burton Richardson for the 1994 nighttime version), and countless numbers of models ("Barker's Beauties") have rotated in and out of the cast over time.

* ''{{Spooks}}'' went through a very large number of cast changes in its run. Only one character, Harry Pearce, appears in all ten seasons and every other position in Section D had at least three different occupants over the show's run.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'', almost. Despite three members of the original Four Man Team making it to the series cancellation (one of them having spent a year [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence dead]] for [[Literature/TheRestaurantAtTheEndOfTheUniverse tax purposes]]), most of the surrounding cast and all of the big bads were gone two seasons earlier.

Six players from the 2017 roster that ended the streak, remained from the 2008 Cup win, and none of them were on the earlier Cup winners (Henrik Zetterberg, Justin Abdelkader, Jimmy Howard, Darren Helm, Niklas Kronwall, and Jonathan Ericsson).
* In an indirect way, only three people were present in the first three Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cups (1991-2 (1991-92 and 2009): Mario Lemieux (TheLeader in the first two, owner in the third), Gilles Meloche (goaltender coach in all) and Kevin Stevens (player in the first two, scout in the third, to the point he wasn't engraved on the Cup). By the time the Penguins won again in 2016-7, 2016-17, just Lemieux remained to get his name two more times, and the roster had only 5 reminders of 2009 (Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Chris Kunitz, Kris Letang - who missed the ice in 2017 due to injury - and the only one that didn't get ice time in the second series, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury - who afterwards would be picked in the expansion draft).

* ''Series/TheBill'' lasted for 26 years, starting in 1984. Nearly the entire original cast were still present as of the 1992 season, but there was a gradual erosion from that point onwards. A fair portion of the original cast were still in the show in 2000, but a massive cast clean-out seen the removal of some of these characters (notably Peter Ellis as the Chief Super, who had been a regular since 1984), after which nobody seemed to have contracual immortality anymore. At least one ''original'' cast member (Jeff Stewart as PC Reg Hollis) still managed to stick around until the 24th season in 2008 however, while one cast member from the original 1983 pilot episode (Trudie Goodwin as Sergeant June Ackland) was there until the 23rd season in 2007.

Five guys remained in all championships (Nicklas Lidström, Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, Darren McCarty, and Tomas Holmström), while Chris Osgood was absent from the third one.

** Eric Szmanda (Greg Sanders) also deserves a mention. Although he only had a recurring role as a lab tech in the first two seasons, he became a regular cast member in season 3, and remained as such throughout the finale.

In 2017 a similar scenario is expected with the departure of Creator/StevenMoffat, the producer, and Creator/PeterCapaldi, the star).
