What’s in store for the end of Modern Family? Recently, the cast and co-creator Steve Levitan spoke with The Wrap about the ABC TV show’s upcoming finale and possible spin-off.
The long-running sitcom is the middle of its 11th and final season. The cast includes Ed O’Neil, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Nolan Gould, Ariel Winter, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, Jeremy Macguire, and Reid Ewing.
During this year’s winter TCA press conference, Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan revealed there are no current plans for a spin-off to the ABC TV show. Star Julie Bowen followed up by saying that doesn’t mean there will never be a spin-off:
It depends. Is the spinoff as good as ‘Modern Family?’ Do we get to have the amazing writers? Do we get to have the amazing cast? The incredible hours? Do I get to work in LA and see my kids? Then yeah.”

Critically lauded for revitalizing the television sitcom when it premiered in fall 2009, “Modern Family” also quickly cemented itself as a culturally defining series. The show featured characters who lived their lives on their own terms, broke down stereotypes and shared their biggest embarrassments, mishaps, tender and funny moments with the world. The recipient of a record five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, “Modern Family” tied the Emmy Award record previously set by “Frasier.” As the series counts down to the finale, this wonderfully large and blended family will continue to delight audiences with its honest and often hilarious look into the warm and sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
“Modern Family” is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in association with Steven Levitan Prods and Picador Productions. Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are co-creators/executive producers. Danny Zuker, Paul Corrigan, Brad Walsh, Abraham Higginbotham, Jeffrey Richman and Jeff Morton also serve as executive producers.
