Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily Fields on the long-running series, posted her “Farewell Letter” to YouTube Tuesday.

"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."

She 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."

"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."

The final episodes of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ will begin airing in April 2017. The cast and crew wrapped up filming for good on Oct. 26.
