The Cast Exits That Kept M*A*S*H Fresh and Timeless

Introduction: A Show’s Unlikely Success

M*A*S*H, initially met with poor ratings, turned into a TV legend that spanned 11 seasons. The show's unique blend of humor and drama, combined with a stellar cast led by Alan Alda as Hawkeye, made it a staple of American television. One of the key factors behind its longevity was the frequent departure of main cast members, which surprisingly kept the show fresh and engaging.

Early Departures and Fresh Faces

The first major exits came in the form of Wayne Rogers, who played Trapper, and McLean Stevenson, who portrayed the beloved Major Blake. Rogers left due to frustration over his character being overshadowed by Hawkeye. Stevenson's exit, driven by similar concerns, led to one of TV's most shocking moments: Major Blake’s death.
