"Pretty Little Liars" wrapped production on its seventh and final season this week, and the cast and crew took to social media to reminisce about the series and reflect on the end of an era, sharing some emotional photos and words with fans.
The tributes came pouring in from stars Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, and Troian Bellisario, as well as series creator and showrunner I. Marlene King, with each woman saying goodbye to the series in her own way. Throwback photos, snaps from the wrap party, and parting words from empty dressing rooms all made appearances on Twitter and Instagram, each more emotional than the last.

Today we let Aria, Alison, Hanna, Emily, and Spencer go while the rest of us tried to cope by eating cake. Thank you everyone for this incredible ride. I'm trying to breathe and soak it all in and I'm just so full of gratitude that this was my life for so long. Rosewood Forever, xoxo Em. I mean Shay ????. #PLLForever
From the first episode (this photo) until now ... goodbye Aria. You became a huge part of my life and a part of my identity in a way. I'll miss you , your wacky wardrobe, your ability to do anything for love and your friends. Forever in my heart!!
I have kept so little in this room over the years, by Patti and Lo have been here through all of it. I guess I had hopes it would make it easy to pack up when the end came. Well, It took very little time but nothing about the packing was felt easy. Goodbye room (and my home for 7 years). Be good to the next girl. Whoever she is.
Reflecting on these last seven years in my empty room I called home. I will never forget this experience. I was so lucky to work with such amazing people who have affected my life greatly. I am so happy to know they will be my family from here on out. To the fans...... what can I say other than I love you so much. Thank you for being on this journey with me and giving me so much support. I wouldn't be here without all of you. I'm sad to say bye to Hanna..... but I'm excited to see what the future holds and I'm so happy to know that all of you will be by my side ❤️
Can't... stop... crying. I know I need to celebrate this amazing show and not mourn it- but that just seems too hard right now... ????
