“The Hunger Games” stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Sam Claflin bid an emotional farewell to the franchise as filming on the final installment came to an end on Friday.

The cast of the blockbuster movie series shot their final scene for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” in Europe and producer Nina Jacobson photographed a group hug between castmembers Lawrence, Harrelson, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as the foursome said their goodbyes.

Claflin, who joined the cast for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” last year, also expressed his thanks to his co-stars and fans of the book-to-big screen franchise.

He wrote, “I just want/need to express my many thanks to everyone (cast, crew & fans) who have worked so hard for so long to make The Hunger Games experience what it is. But for also trusting me enough to let me be part of it. I feel privileged, honored and so very lucky to have shared this opportunity with so many passionate & talented people. #dreamjob”

The final book of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian series, “Mockingjay,” has been split into two films, with the first premiering this November, and the fourth and final movie debuting in November, 2015.
