At the end of his letter to the fans, Macy adds: “And now it’s done. The last episode has aired. And I’d like to tell you again, I love you. Thank you for letting us in to your lives. And if I may make one small request, please stay completely, bravely and unapologetically, shameless.”

Other actors from the series are also saying goodbye to Shameless and the fans on social media. Taking to Twitter, Kev actor Steve Howey praised former lead star Emmy Rossum, who was, unfortunately, able to make it back to the series for its final episode.

She was our matriarch,” Howey wrote, posting an image of Rossum. “One of the pillars that held up the foundation. If you look back over the last 10 seasons, you’ll find something special, Fiona. She was missed this last season but never forgotten.”
