“Modern Family” is coming to an end after 11 seasons.
ABC announced on Tuesday that its critically acclaimed comedy series was renewed for the 11th season which will be the show’s last. When the show, co-created by Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, first premiered in 2009 it was praised for its portrayal of a wacky, blended family which featured a same-sex couple, Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet).
The show went on to win 22 Emmy awards including five for Outstanding Comedy Series from 2010-2014. It’s also received a Golden Globe for best television series, four Screen Actors Guild Awards for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series, a Peabody Award and a GLAAD Media Award.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell) tweeted an emotional reaction to the news writing “Will be hard to say goodbye. Love my family.”
The final season will air from 2019-2020.
