15 Sitcom Characters Whose Personalities Changed Completely
Okay, they’re not canceling our show, but if we want it to have some longevity, it could use some course correction. Great sitcoms are all about the characters. If we love them, we’ll come back week after week to see what kind of insanity they get up to next. So, whether it was directly after the pilot, or within the first few seasons, the show felt like these now-beloved characters needed to change.
Why some characters get a revamp, and some characters need to die or disappear is a mystery. For example, in Parks & Rec, Mark Brendanawicz is completely written off the show, but Andy Dwyer changes from a selfish slob to a lovable member of the Parks Department (and then into a hot slob??).
And, as you’ll see, not every change was a good one. For better or for worse, the personalities of these 15 sitcom characters changed courses completely.
