Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because we still have one last season of Modern Family!
The CBS comedy is ending its 10-year run after season 11, reports. Though there were whispers that the show was coming to a close, we all had hopes that it would stick around forever. Luckily, there are still reportedly many episodes we can look forward to in the coming months.
Though we can barely stand the thought, here’s everything to know about Modern Family’s final season:
Which cast members will return?
According to Deadline, the original actors are all likely all returning. The outlet claims that the adult stars—Ed O’Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, and Sofia Vergara—all in December.
Details of the original kid cast—Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, and Rico Rodriguez—have yet to be released, but notes that the renewal “hinged” on their return. This leads us to believe that all has been ironed out, and we’ll finally get to see Haley Dunphy as a mom.
How many episodes will there be in season 11?
As of now, it sounds like we can expect between 18 to 22 episodes in the final season. Based on co-creator Christopher Lloyd, it sounds like there’s still plenty more the writers have in mind for the Dunphy-Pritchett-Tucker clan.
“From our standpoint creatively we’ve gotten excited writing this season and change the lives of the characters—some in a significant way—and it’s made us think, ‘Wow, there’s a lot to explore in the lives of these characters,'” he told .
Give me some spoilers on the new season!
Of course, not much has been shared about what will happen in this last installment, especially considering co-creator Steve Levitan said, “I thought season 10 was going to be it.” (So glad he was wrong!)
Though there was a shocking death, unexpected pregnancy, and an infinite amount of laughs in season 10, it sounds like there’s plenty to look forward to in the funny family's parting moments.
"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,” said ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke.
