Modern Family may be entering its final season, but will this be the end of the Dunphys? Recently, ABC boss Karey Burke spoke with Deadline about possible spinoff ideas for the hit TV show.
Nearing its 11th and final season, the comedy series revolves around three Los Angeles families who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill) and his adult children, Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) and Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson). The cast also includes Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Jeremy Maguire.
In the interview, Burke revealed to Deadline that there is a possibility for a Modern Family spinoff that focuses on Haley Dunphy (Hyland) and her new family. However, series co-creator Steve Levitan wants to focus on the the final season of Modern Family right now before discussing any spinoffs.
I get smacked down every time I bring it up to Steve Levitan, so I’m going to stay quiet for a little while,” she said. “They’ve just started production on the final season — I was at the first table read last week, which was so great, and I’m going to let them focus on that.”
