*WARNING: This article contains spoilers for the Schitt's Creek season 6 finale!*
Schitt's Creek, the much-loved Canadian sitcom from the minds of Eugene and Dan Levy, ended last night after six treasured seasons - and fans were left in "puddles of tears" at the emotional finale.
The series, which ended for US audiences this week and will finish in the UK next month, follows the Roses family who lose their fortune after being defrauded by their business manager.
The privileged family are left with their sole remaining asset: a small town named Schitt's Creek, which Johnny (Eugene Levy) had bought for David (Daniel Levy) as a joke birthday gift in the 90s.
Forced to rebuild their life in the town, the Roses move into two rooms in a rundown motel.
The series is obviously hilarious, but there was a lot of character building at its core.
Viewers followed the Roses - Johnny, Moira, David and Alexis - as they bonded as a family through their misfortune, and the ending sees the family leave Schitt's Creek, the place they so begrudged moving to at the start.
Patrick and David get married, Moira is set to return to Sunrise Bay, Johnny places a lucrative new business deal and Alexis gets ready to leave for a new life in New York.
The whole episode is emotional, but it's the goodbyes outside the hotel which proved to be all to much for longstanding fans.
"Perhaps i just needed to cry anyway but the series finale & wonderful wrap up really hit me hard," said teary-eyed fan on Twitter.
"This Schitts Creek finale. my god. I just had three different tears running down my face at the same time," said another.
"#SchittsCreek might have just pulled off the perfect series finale," viewed another.
"When a box of Kleenex just won't do the job, bring out the Bounty!! Happy tears! Sad tears! Thank you, @SchittsCreek," cried another.
"The @SchittsCreek series finale was perfection. So sad to see this beautiful show go. I'll be rewatching for years to come," said a third.
There's your warning: don't tune in without a massive box of tissues.
Farewell, Schitt's Creek.
