The MEG experiment has carried on a search for the Lepton Flavour Violating decay $\mu \to e \gamma$, taking data in the 2008-2013 period. The final analysis of the MEG data is presented here, setting a new 90% confidence level upper limit on the branching ratio of this decay at $4.2 \times 10^{-13}$. We also present the status of the MEG upgrade, which is expected to improve the sensitivity by one order of magnitude within the next few years.
