IT'S THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE 'MODERN' ERA
EMMY(R) AWARD-WINNING AND ACCLAIMED COMEDY
'MODERN FAMILY' PICKED UP FOR ITS 11TH AND FINAL SEASON
Currently in its 10th season, ABC announced today that it has picked up the Emmy(R) Award-winning series "Modern Family" for an 11th and final season. This wonderfully large and blended family will continue to delight audiences for the 2019-2020 fall schedule with its honest and often hilarious look into the warm and sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family. Produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in association with Steven Levitan Productions and Picador Productions, the series airs Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. EST on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
"Chris and Steve have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history," said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. "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."
"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,'" said co-creator and executive producer Christopher Lloyd.
"Even after 10 years together, we realized there are still some things our writers don't yet know about each other's sex lives," said co-creator and executive producer Steve Levitan.
ABC's "Modern Family" ranks No. 1 in Wednesday's 9:00 p.m. half-hour among Adults 18-49 (2.1/9) and places among TV's Top 5 comedies this season (No. 4).
