- Page 1

While it's easy to get frustrated with all the shows we loved from the 80s and 90s that are getting boring, unoriginal reboots these days, it's important to remember that this phenomenon is nothing new.

Whether they leave for personal reasons, medical issues, or just because they want to slow down, it's always interesting to take a look back and see where our old favorite celebrities went.
