Looks like we’ll have the Dunphy, Pritchett, Delgado and Tucker clan for one more season. Modern Family has been renewed for Season 11 which will serve as the comedy’s last. ABC made the announcement Tuesday at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena.
“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,” co-creator Christopher Lloyd quipped in a statement, while co-creator Steve Levitan added: “Even after 10 years together, we realized there are still some things our writers don’t yet know about each other’s sex lives.”
There were rumors that Season 10 would be the Emmy-winning show’s last but looks like a deal was made to eke out one more season. Personally, I’m happy we get a little more time with the crew.
Are you bummed the end of an era is closing? Weigh in below.
