Fans may have officially bid adieu to Pretty Little Liars in June, but the series is still racking up praise off-screen. During Sunday night's Teen Choice Awards, PLL took home two wins, including Janel Parrish for Choice Villain and Lucy Hale for Choice Drama TV Actress, the latter of which all five leading "Liars" were nominated for. Both women used their Pretty Little Liars Teen Choice Awards speech to reflect on their time on the show and thank for their fans for making it so special — a fitting testament to the legacy that the show has built over the last seven years.

"This is a little bittersweet. It’s my last event for Pretty Little Liars, so this means the absolute world to me. Thank you so much. I love you guys," Hale said. To which Parrish added: "First of all, I’m still shaking. [This win] surprised me so much. Thank you. This means the world. This is our final season. We’re so grateful. We love you."

PLL filming wrapped last October, so the team behind it has had nearly a year to process its end, but it's only been two months since the show aired its twist-filled finale and that emotion came through in Parrish and Hale's words.

Rumors of a PLL spin-off have already begun percolating, and the show's final scene only fanned the flames. But whether or not that ultimately happens, it's clear PLL will be near and dear to these women's hearts for a long time to come.
