No more red sharpie, no more take-downs, no more Memorial Day soirees, because Revenge is officially coming to an end Sunday.

“It has been very bittersweet because we were saying goodbye to these characters – and actors – that we’ve spent so much time with,” executive producer Sunil Nayar tells PEOPLE. “And just like the characters are trying to leave behind the people and plots that had occupied their every waking moments for five years, so was the cast and crew.”

And even though the ABC drama’s cancellation was just recently announced, Sunday’s finale had been plotted out regardless of the show’s future.

“As we approached the second half of the season, lets’ call it A.D. or ‘After Daniel‘, we crafted it with the intention that even if it wasn’t the series finale, it would be the finale of the story people had been watching for four years.”

But that doesn’t mean the team behind Revenge was looking to tie everything up in a neat little bow.

“We wanted to show the audience we were not scared to get to the places that they may have thought we wouldn’t have, like Emily announcing to the world that she really is Amanda Clark,” Nayar says. “We had milestones that we wanted to hit to prove that we weren’t scared of the closure and, in fact, we were promising it.”

So what exactly can Nayar promise for the final episode?

“All of the series regulars have a journey and a conclusion and a bit of retribution in the series finale,” he says. “I feel we really have told everyone’s complete story and I think everyone’s ending is both satisfying and surprising. I’m really happy with where we ended up.”

The final episode of Revenge airs Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
