If this year’s tragic TV episodes left you with any tissues to spare, you’ll want to grab those now.
We’re only halfway through 2022, but we’ve already lost no fewer than 20 beloved characters during the television year thus far. And, since we thought your Tuesday could use a little emotional upheaval, we’ve recapped those tearjerking losses in the list below.
The following photos (presented chronologically) revisit nearly two dozen demises that have broken our hearts in 2022, beginning with the January loss of a major Dexter character and culminating (so far) with a wholly unexpected June fatality on Legacies. And though other characters have met unfortunate ends on the small screen this year, we’ve whittled down our choices to the most distressing deaths of the bunch, with only one tragedy per show represented.
Needless to say, we’re slapping a big ol’ SPOILER ALERT on the list below. If you’re not caught up on the following series (listed alphabetically), you might want to bookmark this page for later: 1883, Better Call Saul, Charmed, Chicago P.D., Dexter: New Blood, Euphoria, FBI: Most Wanted, Fear the Walking Dead, The Flash, Killing Eve, The Kings of Napa, Legacies, Mayans MC, Ozark, The Resident, Russian Doll, Stranger Things, This Is Us, The Walking Dead and/or The Young and the Restless.
