It’s hard saying goodbye to a show that you’ve spent years with — especially when that show is Liv and Maddie.
Warning, all of their goodbyes will probably break your heart, too.

Tonight is the night. Four years ago I was an excited kid who just got his drivers license when I got the call that we were going to be a series. I know I can't possibly do the journey or anyone responsible for Liv and Maddie justice with a longer than usual instagram post. However, I can say that I learned more about myself, the entertainment industry, and how amazing people can be than I ever could have anywhere else. I am sad to see Liv and Maddie stop airing new episodes but this will forever be remembered as the peak of my career than I can reflect on from rock bottom. To the fans that watched from the beginning I can't thank you enough. Everyone one of you that tuned in every new episode were the fuel to the fire we put out bi-monthly. You were all so supportive and on point with your constructive criticisms or criticisms. Please watch this very special episode tonight at 5:30 and cry along with the rest of America's youth. Silver lining; now I have reason to go back and watch all the scenes I fast forwarded through because I wasn't in them. I wish I could express to everyone that made this show possible (fans included) just how much each and every one of you mean to me. Not you, @tenzingt4 Now, let's demand a #LivAndMaddieMovie.
Tonight's the night…after 4 magical seasons #livandmaddiecalistyle comes to an end…but the friendships created during that time will bond us together forever! I have thanked everyone thru tears & hugs in person but still gotta give additional love & gratitude to everyone at the Disney Channel! The cast made this show must see tv for so many kids & families – @dovecameron @joeybragg @tenzingt4 @rochakali @sirbenjamin213 @officiallaurendonzis @jess_m_garcia @mccarya @kurtlong73 @joliejenkins @chloeeast @jimmybellinger @carterhastings1 @shelbywulfert @emmybuckner @simplyshak @renastrober @amarrmw @thelucasadams @chloe_wepper @joshswickard @themirandamay & so many talented others! Our remarkable crew who made everything possible – too many to name but a few I must #davecove #kevinsullivan @wendyfaraone @poulos.chris @therealjencandy #tootch #greghampson @michaelcourville #ash – our remarkable writers lead by our heart & soul show runners @johndbeck @ronhart44 our amazing @oopsdoughnuts @whitneye0718 @mkmeath and the lady who without her 24/7 producing we never would have existed or stayed on – my remarkable partner @bsullenger. It all started with a pilot called Bits & Pieces…and from that two amazing twin sisters & their family was born! Cast & Crew By Chance – Friends By Choice! Bam What!!!
On Friday, March 24th, at 5:30PM on @DisneyChannel, we will air the final episode of #LivAndMaddie, the show I was fortunate enough to create with @ronhart44 @bsullenger & @herrdirektor. I'm incredibly proud of this show, this episode, the cast, crew and writing staff I was blessed to work with and the positive messages we were able to disguise inside a boatload of fun. As we take our bow, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who put their blood sweat, tears and laughs into making the show. And I'd like to say an even bigger thank you to those of you who watched. Whether you're a kid, or a grown-up who watched WITH your kids, it was our pleasure and honor to spend the last four years with your family in your home on your TV. We hope you enjoy watching the "Liv and Maddie" series finale, #EndARooney as much as we enjoyed making it. This is not the end of the story. Just the end of the part we are currently telling. Bam, what?!
When I booked Liv and Maddie, I had no idea the impact it was going to have on my life. I had just moved to LA a few months prior, and was SPOILED to have had this opportunity. I gained four seasons of knowledge, love, experience, friends, laughter, and a family. We have been done shooting for a bit now, but it's crazy to think tonight the final episode ever airs. Tune In. ?? Thank you to EVERYONE involved. #livandmaddie #livandmaddiecalistyle #goodbyelam #disneychannel #lamfam
Tonight we say goodbye to Liv and Maddie ???? the best four years of my entire life. . . Besides living my dream of being on the Disney Channel, this show gave me a whole new family. People that have impacted me more than I could have ever hoped for. Working on this show was much more than just a dream come true. ????This show has changed my life, forever. I met my best friends on this set, friends that I would do anything for. I owe so much gratitude to anyone and EVERYONE who let me be a part of Liv and Maddie. Willow, will always be a huge part of me and thank you thank you thank you for letting me play her. I love you all so much…Goodbye Rooneys ???? #goodbyelam #livandmaddie #livandmaddiecalistyle #endarooney

As we near our end later today, I want to tip my hat to our beginning. This is Bits & Pieces, the show that made us a family. For two years prior to this, it was just me, @herrdirektor, @johndbeck & @ronhart44 in search of a show. Multiple concepts. Countless drafts. TWO YEARS. Not a clue if we'd ever get something on the air. Eventually the four of us grew into 100+ and we got to make an iconic DC show with the loveliest and happiest cast & crew in the business. It doesn't always happen that way — ok, it rarely happens that way — and I've been doing this long enough to know how fortunate I am. A big thank you to everyone at the @disneychannel, to our incredible cast and our hardworking crew. It was actually a pleasure to go to work everyday. To my partners in crime — Andy, Ron & John — if I had to spend so many years in a foxhole, I'm glad it was with you. I think we done good. Finally, to our fans…your devotion to this show has been our greatest reward. Thanks for being part of our community and for sending us constant love. I hope you enjoy this finale. It's my very favorite episode, and it was crafted with an enormous amount of care for our fans. I find it emotionally satisfying in every way. We've been talking about "the end" for months now, but the truth is…this show marks the beginning. The beginning of lifelong friendships. The beginning of incredible careers for many, both in front of and behind the camera. It's the first time we worked together, but certainly not the last. You are all etched into my heart, as is this show, and today I am filled with pride and gratitude. xoxo #livandmaddie #endarooney
Thank you to everyone who has supported this show, whether you watched from season 1, or came in later on, I am so happy to have been a part of a show that means so much to so many. Thank you Dove, for being the Liv to my Maddie, for letting me be Maddie with you, and to you and Emmy for being my twins and my sweet, dear friends. The past 4 years are irreplaceable ???? Sisters by chance, friends by choice ????#GoodbyeLAM
