The stars of Pretty Little Liars are waving goodbye to Rosewood. 

After six years and seven seasons onscreen together, the beloved Freeform drama is filming its final scenes ever, surely an emotional experience for inseparably tight-knit castmates Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse

Troian took to Instagram early Saturday morning with a heartfelt essay about her final moments on set, and fans will want to grab the tissues for this one, because it sure is a tear jerker. 

"It's a little past 4AM and I'm crawling into bed after the last fraturday I'll ever pull on @prettylittleliars," she captioned a photo of herself, adding, "There is something so magical about these work day/nights. Everyone is so raw. So funny. So tired and so unapologetically caring for one another."

She continued, "I'm allowed to be my silliest on set, I'm aloud to cry my heart out in a scene. I'm aloud to drink too much coffee and laugh and sing way too loud and fall asleep on everyone else's chair at video village while they work tirelessly and and gently prop me up for my next take. That's family. That's who I work with. And these are the nights I'll miss the most. 3 more wake ups left."

In late August, the cast announced the news that PLL would end with season seven via Facebook Live broadcast, and since then its but nothing but bittersweet reminiscing from the actors. 

Keegan Allen shared his own tribute to Bellisario on Instagram Friday, writing, "I have grown up with you and learned so much from you. I'm a better person because of you. I will continue to look up to you as an actor, because you care so deeply for our craft, and bring the greatest truth to everything you do."

"I absolutely love you Troian Bellisario. And as our characters drift off into space and away from our control, I remain grateful I could inhabit their existence with you right there to ground and protect me," he added. "I will miss these subtle moments and quick, brief glimpses of you and this whole surreal experience."

It's not all sad news, though! You'll still have some time to come to terms with Pretty Little Liars ending: The second half of season seven will premiere in April 2017, and the series finale will be a supersized two-hour event.
