When the show started, Larry signed a five-year contract and was offered to renew for two more seasons when his contract expired, but he declined. After five seasons, Larry had grown tired of playing the same negative, cartoonish antagonist, especially since during that period, the show's tone had changed from pure comedy to more dramatically focused storylines, and he decided to leave the series so that he could pursue other more challenging roles.

Frank Burns - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1290 words)
In the movie, Burns was portrayed by Robert Duvall, and in the series he was portrayed by Larry Linville.
The character of Frank Burns was said to be diametrically opposite of Larry Linville in real life, who was generally a friendly, courteous, well-read man. (Reportedly, Linville could also be high-strung, and this trait played into his TV character.) He based his portrayal of Major Burns on "every idiot I've ever known".
Linville, who once commented that there was actually a very dark aura hovering over Frank, believing that Frank was not all that stable yet he was still operating on patients, felt that the character of Frank Burns had gone as far as it possibly could, with the way the series had developed.
