Even after all these years, Modern Family continues to mock my famishment. Well into its eighth season, it remains one of ABC’s best performers in terms of both its demo ratings and audience size. When considering a show this successful, the cancellation or renewal question largely comes down to money and will. In early January, ABC boss Channing Dungey said the network was “enthusiastic,” despite complex negotiations. If the creative team and the cast want to continue, and can come to terms, ABC will renew Modern Family for a ninth season.
5/10 update: ABC has renewed Modern Family for two more years — seasons nine and 10. Details here.
