Lea Michele said her first official goodbye to her character, Rachel Berry, as well as to Glee, the show on which she has starred since 2009, on Saturday. While subsequent goodbyes are certain to take place, Lea Michele has wrapped her filming for the show, and this marks the end of an era for the actress.

Glee will have aired for a total of six seasons and 121 episodes when fans officially say their goodbyes during the show's finale in March.

Even though Lea Michele has moved on with a new man, saying goodbye to Glee will likely stir up some old emotions regarding the passing of her boyfriend and costar Cory Monteith. Monteith played the role of Finn Hudson, who was long in a relationship with Michele's Rachel Berry on several seasons of Glee. Monteith died in July of 2013 of an accidental drug overdose.

Lea Michele thanked her fans and her Glee cast and crew via Twitter on Friday and Saturday.

Can you believe Glee is ending after six seasons? Do you think you will miss the show anywhere near as much as Lea Michele will?
