When you enjoy a show on television, you sometimes forget how much time has passed. That’s certainly the case with watching Modern Family. It’s been almost 10 years since the first episode aired back in September of 2009, and so many things have happened on the show and with the Pritchett-Dunphy clan. We’ve literally seen the kids grow up on television, and we’ve grown to consider them part of the family—somehow. It’s sad to say goodbye, but we all know that all good things must come to an end eventually. Modern Family is saying farewell with its 11th season coming this fall.
Given that this will be the last time we’ll see the family get together on screen, we can safely expect crazier times than usual. The show has become quite an iconic series over the years, and it’s managed to stay strong for the entire time it was on the air. We’re pretty sure that there will be lots of tears to be shed and belly laughs to be had, but that’s almost a given on a show like Modern Family. However, EOnline.com reports that there will be plenty of other milestones to be had in this last season. We know that season 10 gave us a glimpse into so many family milestones, but we also thought that season 10 was going to be the final season of the show.
The creators of Modern Family, Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, assured us that we really haven’t seen everything just yet. It’s exciting to think about what could those writers possibly mean, but you could almost cringe at the notion as well. The family has done some pretty outrageous things in the past, and we’re fairly certain that they will take it even farther this season.
The season 10 finale was quite a big one for everyone in the show. This article from MSN.com outlines Sarah Hyland’s big moment in the entire series. Hyland’s character Haley gave birth to twins in the finale, which is a great set up for season 11 to start with. It’s quite a circle of life moment for the show, considering that Hyland’s character was only a kid when Modern Family first aired. Now that the Pritchett-Dunphy clan is growing, we could only cross our fingers for a spinoff announcement before the show completely closes its doors.
We can expect all the original stars to come back. The adults are definitely signed on, and that includes Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet. According to Countryliving.com, the renewal for season 11 relied heavily on the return of all the original kids—Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. Considering that the final season has been announced, we can probably expect every member of the gang to show up. It’ll be a great way to end the series, with all of the family together on screen.
