Kirsten Vangsness posted a series of photos from the make up trailer walls on May 14.

“When you love your job so much you post pictures of the job at the job to remind you about the job,” she wrote in the caption. “My heart is broken from joy and it will take a bit to put myself back together, luckily I have these great 7 folks I know from this job (and our huge brilliant crew) who I can cry to about it and know intimately where I’m coming from.”

“Thank you for giving us the gift to do this job for so long my appreciation is truly infinite,” she concluded.

“My goodness. What a joy and a privilege I’ve had to sit at this desk,” she wrote in the caption of a photo of her character’s desk. “I’m not crying, because I will mess up Garcia’s make-up if I do but I am becoming exquisitely aware I am entering good bye time.”

Criminal Minds is ending its run on CBS with its upcoming 15th and final season, and the cast has finished filming the series finale.

Season 14 ended with an emotional cliffhanger for two of the team's members. JJ (A.J. Cook) confessed she's always loved Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) at gunpoint, the fallout of which will be explored in its final season.

The series also stars Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Aisha Tyler, Kirsten Vangsness, Adam Rodriguez, and Daniel Henney.
