The following is a list of characters who have been killed off in the series, or that were already dead to begin with, organized into individual seasons and/or periods of time. Unseen and/or unnamed characters are not included, and neither are characters that only appeared in pictures. Characters whose deaths, in a timeline, fit a specific season or period of time, are included in the respective tables for those. As for characters whose deaths occur, via flashback, in a specific season, but didn't actually occur in the timeline of that season, are presented at the beginning of said season (e.g. Monique Polier died during the timeline of season 2, but wasn't introduced till season 3.).
