The current revival era is giving TV audiences a chance to reconnect with some of their favorite characters of past years, such as The X-Files’ Mulder and Scully and, later this month, the Tanner family of Fuller House. But what about characters that have been missing from shows that are still on the air? When do we get to see those people again?

Here are 9 characters from current shows that we haven’t touched base with in a while, but would really really want to see come back at some point, for either a guest spot or a full on seasonal arc. Some involve actors who left shows on bad terms, some involve actors who left on okay terms, and there are a few characters who actually met their demise, but we all know that no death on TV is necessarily final.

Elliot Stabler (Law & Order: SVU)
While actor Christopher Meloni has done a great job in his career of mixing serious roles with hilarious ones – one only needs to view anything Wet Hot American Summer-related to prove that last one – he will arguably forever be most associated with the hot-headed and faith-embracing Detective Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: SVU, a character he played for 12 seasons, earning an Emmy nomination. Meloni left the show fairly suddenly in 2011 after contract negotiations didn’t go his way, and Stabler was said to have resigned from the force after being placed on administrative leave. Thankfully, showrunner Warren Leight plans to bring Meloni back, but it likely won’t happen until the actual series finale. We’re holding out hope for something sooner.
