"More feels in our final week of filming!" she captioned the set of photos which showed her and co-stars Aisha Dee and Meghann Fahy smiling and hugging one another.

She continued: "Last night I had a good cry when we wrapped our last scene in Jane's apartment set. This has been a place that has felt like a real home to me these last five seasons. It has been filled with so many memories, emotions, learning experiences, and magical moments that I will never forget "

The hit series, which airs on Freeform in the US, has seen renewed interest in recent months following its international release on Netflix. Although the first three seasons have been available to watch on Amazon Prime for years, many only discovered the series last month when it landed on the streaming site.

News of the show's cancellation came in January. At the time, the show's creator, Wendy Straker Hauser, released a statement that read: "The Bold Type has been an incredible gift that has truly changed my life. I spent my twenties in New York City, working in magazines, so in many ways, the show feels very personal to my experiences.

"I have truly loved writing this show and living in this world. I will miss it terribly, but I am so grateful for the opportunity and glad to know it's been a comfort to so many people out there."

According to Freeform, the series will conclude with Jane, Sutton and Kat "on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world".
