I wrote for a primetime show where one of the actors was very difficult to work with so the creator of the show ended the season with that character‘s life in peril.
[The actor] became very apologetic and tried to get his act together, so he was not written off.
However, the following season he was back to the same shenanigans leading to him being killed off after that season.
He was not informed until his contract was not renewed.
It was most definitely not a fantastic way [to die]. In fact, they didn’t even get a death scene.
The next season started and it was revealed that character was dead.
