Blanca star Mj Rodriguez shared a photo of the flag of the House of Evangelista, writing: "And just like that... it's a Wrap. I couldn't have asked for a better cast and crew to work on long side. The long hours, Emotional pull, The early calls were all worth it in the end.

"This show has changed my life, And I wouldn't have it any other way. So thank you pose fam, we did it! We changed the world, and we showed them how to love a bit harder again!"

Ricky actor Dyllon Burnside shared a post at the start of the final day, posting a cute photo of everyone having food together.

He wrote: "Don't have the words to articulate all of my feelings right now... what I will say, though, is that I have learned SO MUCH about love, life, family, art, community, myself, this industry... idk. So many things... from this group of people. I'm grateful for y'all.

"You are all realness personified. Thank you for the ways you have enriched my life... I'm sure I will have more to say as the final season airs but until then... I've been blessed beyond measure to work on this show for the past 3 seasons. You've given me more than I could've ever imagined."

Angel Bismark Curiel's post spoke about how his character made him a better person, stating: "Papi is my hero. The kind of man I aspire to be. Focused, loving, kind, forgiving, encouraging, the type to go above and beyond in the name of family. Not sure why I was given the gift of portraying him but it's an honor I'll carry with me for the rest of my life.

"Papi openly loved Angel, a Black and Latinx trans woman. No f**ks given. He didn't care what anyone had to say. I hope Papi's love story encourages men to stand in their truth, unlearn all that toxic shit, and learn to love. Period.

"The killings of Black and brown trans women has everything to do with shame and toxic masculinity and the harmful effects of the gender binary. If you love someone, truly love someone including yourself, no harm is being done. We must love and protect the people we love.

"For me, Papi was a mountain – a high summit for a mortal like me to climb. I could not have played him without the support of my family for life."
