2018 has been a year of laughter but also one of pain. There have been many TV deaths we didn’t see coming this year. Now it’s time to rank the most shocking 18.

It’s been a tough year for TV deaths. We’ve had to say goodbye to some of our favorite characters. Many of these we didn’t see coming. Yes, SEAL Team, I’m most definitely looking at you. Throughout 2018, we’ve cried our hearts out at the way our favorite shows have treated our characters.

Looking at shows across the networks, it’s time to look at what the most shocking deaths were. Which ones rocked us the hardest.

In some cases, these deaths shocked us because of who they were. We either didn’t see it coming or we just didn’t think the writers would do that do us. In other cases, the deaths broke our hearts and we felt the shock from the other characters on screen.

They’re not always going to be characters we loved. In fact, we may not have liked the storyline or the way the death was handled, but that doesn’t stop it from being a shocker.

This is from 2018. Not just from the 2018-2019 TV season, but TV deaths from January to now. Of course, there may be some more deaths to come, so this is up to Dec. 18, 2018. Ah, lots of 18s!

Here are the top 18 TV deaths from 2018.
