The end is nigh.
The leading ladies of Freeform's Pretty Little Liars—Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Sasha Pieterse—convened Wednesday for a final table read. In late August, E! News confirmed that the series will end in 2017 after seven seasons. Before it began, the girls huddled together on the Warner Bros. lot and took a selfie to commemorate the occasion.
Hale later put the picture on Instagram. "While we still have 15 more days of filming, I sit here with a heavy, but extremely full & grateful heart after our official last table read of Pretty Little Liars. Aside from a murder mystery, mysterious Rosewood, the Hunt for A, and a lot of sketchy characters...the foundation of this show started and ended with friendship. Through it all, these characters stuck by each other's side," Hale, 27, told her followers. "Knowing and working with each of these ladies has left such a huge mark on my life. And I'm not ready to say goodbye."
