And with one emotional post, Gina Rodriguez is saying adios to Jane the Virgin.

After five seasons, the beloved Spanglish CW series will air its final episode on Wednesday night. Ahead of its finale, the Golden Globe winner took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message about portraying Jane Villanueva and her incredible experience on the show.

"Jane the Virgin. Wow. We started shooting the first season of Jane in July 2014. A few days into shooting I turned 30 on set. Yesterday I turned 35. And today is the very last episodes, 99 and 100 airing of Jane the Virgin," Rodriguez began. "Five years. Five years of love, laughter, growth, pain, surprises, deaths, new births and a sh*t ton of memories. To my warriors who have supported me from day one, Thank you. I am able to live out my dream career because of you and I will never stop making art to bring Joy and Laughter into your home/train ride/plane ride or classroom!"

"Art is my savior. Art is what makes me feel like I can fly," she continued. "Thank you to Jennie for making me your Jane and to the incredible cast for becoming my family. I will always love you Jane. Hope you tune in tonight and enjoy our goodbye! 📸 by my mentor and one of the best in the biz @bradsilberling."

Justin Baldoni, who starred as Jane's love interest, Rafael, also posted a sweet behind-the-scenes photo of himself with Rodriguez, Jaime Camil and Yael Grobglas.

"Can’t believe this is it. Tonight it ends. What a ride," the actor wrote. "Forgive me as I may be posting a lot today as I am feeling very sentimental (as usual). So much gratitude. What a journey this has been. What a family we have become. What a blessing. #theend #janethevirgin#thefinalchapter."
