Modern Family has confirmed it’s being cancelled after its 11th season

It’s coming to an end.

Modern Family was a TV show that broke barriers before anyone else. It was a depiction of a mixed family and how no matter who you are, or what background you come from, you can be part of a healthy, loving family.

While viewership has gone down in recent seasons, it still ranks on the top 5 scripted shows for ABC.

However, last night it was confirmed that the next season – season 11, will be its last.

Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement: “Chris and Steve [the creators] have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history. 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.”

Meanwhile, Christopher said: “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.”

And Lloyd also gave a very tongue-in-cheek response: “After 10 years together, we realised there are still some things our writers don’t yet know about each other’s sex lives.”

The show will be missed.
