Think you're going to be sad when Pretty Little Liars ends? Just imagine how the cast, crew and creators feel when they wrap after seven seasons!

Keegan Allen filmed his final scenes Tuesday and gave an emotional farewell to his PLL family. Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse and the rest of the cast said their final goodbyes the following day, and based on the Instagrams, tweets and snaps we've seen so far, it looks like there wasn't a dry eye anywhere on the Pretty Little Liars set.

Show creator Marlene King reflected on shooting the finale, telling Cosmopolitan, "Today marks the series wrap on 'Pretty Little Liars,' my home away from home for the last seven seasons. When I call 'cut' on the very last scene, all five PLLs will be in the shot. Tears will be spilled, gifts will be exchanged, and final memories will be made. The most meaningful gift, however, is that we call ourselves 'PLL Family' because that is how much we mean to each other."

Lucy, who played Aria Montgomery for all seven seasons, took to Instagram, writing, "The day has come to say goodbye to my second home, a character that helped shaped me and so many people who mean the world to me. Bittersweet feelings today, but so proud of what we've done." 

Troian Instagrammed an email her fiancé Patrick Adams sent to her character, Spencer. 

 

"I had no idea how hard this would be," added Troiann.

Shay took a more lighthearted approach to her final day filming, Instagramming a collage of Freeform shots with her own commentary.

Sasha Instagrammed a similar split shot, writing, "I can't believe that the day has come. In a couple of hours I'll be going to work for the last time at my second home. Although this day will be filled with happy and sad tears, I'll be forever grateful to share them with the ones I've come to call family."

Ashley's candid Instagram snap made us a little misty-eyed...

Seven years later the day has come to say goodbye.

But it was her tearful Snapchat videos that really brought out the waterworks! 

It's been real, but as creator Marlene wrote, that's what makes it so great. "In season six, Spencer quoted A. A. Milne, author of 'Winnie the Pooh': 'How lucky I am to have something that makes saying good-bye so hard.' And those words have never spoken to me so loudly," she wrote (per Cosmopolitan). "Thank you to the cast, the crew, and all the fans who have kept Rosewood alive; we would be nowhere without you. And as this chapter ends, to my 'PLL' family all over the world, I won't say good-bye, I'll say, 'See you soon, bitches.'"

Pretty Little Liars season 7 returns to Freeform in April 2017.
