Fans and cast alike have learned the fate of the ABC comedy, Modern Family.
The very popular ABC comedy has been renewed for an 11th and final season.
Though fans thought the show would be ending after Season 10, it turns out it’s going to get one more season after all!
The exciting news was announced on Tuesday, February 5 at the Television Critics Association press tour by ABC President Karey Burke.
“Chris [Lloyd] and Steve [Levitan] have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history,” Karey said praising the co-creators.
“In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won’t want to miss.”
Cast members Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, and Rico Rodriguez have all signed deals for an 11th season.
This is exciting news for fans, but it’s also very exciting for Chris and Steve, who get to finish the show on a high note.
“For 10 years, our characters have bravely faced turning points in life and moved through them to great personal enrichment; we have chosen a different path by doing one more season of Modern Family,” Chris said.
“Even after 10 years together, we realized there are still some things our writers don’t yet know about each other’s sex lives,” Steve joked.
A few of the cast members shared their thoughts about the final season on Twitter.
“Will be hard to say goodbye. Love my family,” Jesse wrote on Twitter.
“What an amazing ride this has been! I can’t wait to return for a final season with my Modern Family,” Rico shared.
