And the goodbyes keep on coming.
With Wednesday marking the final day of filming on Pretty Little Liars, showrunner I. Marlene King is bidding farewell to the mystery-loving world she created all those years ago. “Today marks the series wrap on ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ my home away from home for the last seven seasons,” King wrote on the show’s official Instagram, which reposted from the Cosmopolitan account.
Giving a bit of detail on the finale, King continued, “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. We have created a worldwide family of fans who have come together to watch and celebrate the show. Friendships have been made and sealed over the love our passionate fans have for ‘PLL.’ In an age where technology often separates people, we used social media to bring them together.
“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. 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.'”
King later shared this emotional tweet:
Pretty Little Liars returns to Freeform in April 2017.
