Shay Mitchell Tearfully Says Goodbye To Pretty Little Liars — Watch The Emotional Farewell

Shay Mitchell


As you know, Pretty Little Liars has officially wrapped filming after seven years — and taking to her YouTube page on Tuesday, Shay Mitchell shared a raw and emotional goodbye to the Freeform series.

You’re definitely gonna want to grab the tissues!

The actress, who plays Emily Fields, began to tearfully express she gratitude for the show that gave her a chance as an aspiring starlet:

“Sad, anxious, excited, terrified, inspired, gratified, nervous, unsure, proud, upset, accomplished, relieved, devastated, lucky: I didn’t know it was possible to feel so much at once, yet I sit here with all my feelings. It feels like the last day of school with just an extra bit of emptiness.”

The 29-year-old continued:

“Our show ending is such a weird, unique thing that I have only experienced from where you all are sitting: the viewer’s side. I remember shows I watched growing up ending and all that came along with a series finale, yet where I am seated now is so different. I don’t know what my life would’ve looked like without Pretty Little Liars.”

The Mother’s Day star also took a moment to thank the cast and crew — especially her “sisters” and costars Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Sasha Pieterse, and Troian Bellisario:

“We did it. We managed to stay close through seven years of high school. And that will always be what I’m most proud of. The good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly, we were always there for each other, and I feel so incredibly lucky to know you all, and I will never forget what we had these last seven years. It was rare and special and perfect. And I will miss you all madly.”


“I’d like to think that somewhere in an alternate Rosewood universe, that these five women will always remain a constant in each others’ lives, just as I hope we all do in our own reality.”
