Lucy Hale is speaking out about the cancellation of her show, Katy Keene.

It was announced late Thursday night that the CW series was not picked up for a second season, prompting a tearful Hale to send a message to fans on social media.

"Hi guys, this is take...I've had to do this a couple times just 'cause I was a blubbering mess, and y'all don't want to see that," Hale shared with her fans in the video message. "I've kind of struggled all day with what I wanted to say about this, or if I shouldn't say anything...nothing felt right."

The 31-year-old actress continued, "I was like, I don't want to just post a picture or a caption because nothing would do justice to how I feel about Katy Keene or how I feel with the people involved with it."

Hale added that the show was "one of the highlights" of her life and that it was a "joy from top to bottom."
