We hate to be the bearer of bad news, Hate to Get Away With Murder fans. Frank and Bonnie are officially over. 

Co-stars Charlie Weber and Liza Weil, who developed a romance on set of the wildly popular ABC series, have broken up. Weber confirmed the news to People, sharing on Thursday, "Liza and I share an amazing relationship rooted in love and respect. That relationship has found its way back to the great friendship we've always had."

His statement continued, "We will continue to support each other and will always love working together." 

Charlie and Liza's split comes two and a half years after it was revealed publicly that they began dating in the summer of 2016. The former lovebirds preferred to keep most details of their love story private, but in 2017 Weber revealed how they initially fell for each other. 

"We were great friends and we found ourselves in a position to be more than that," he shared on the Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss podcast.

"You spend a lot of time [together] and we, I very much enjoyed spending time away from work and so it all just kind of came together like that," Weber explained at the time. "I'm very happy."
