Modern Family is ending after 10 years and fans are not okay.

After nearly a decade on our screens, Modern Family will be coming to an end after its 11th season.

The news comes after US ABC network president, Karey Burke announced the show would be finishing in 2020, after over 200 episodes.

“Chris Lloyd and Steve Levitan have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history,” she said.

“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.”

Since the sitcom’s inception in 2009, the show has detailed the lives of the Pritchett, Dunphy and Tucker-Pritchett families as they navigate parenting in the show’s signature mockumentary style.

Between the cast, Modern Family has amassed 22 Emmy awards (from 75 nominations) and a Golden Globe for the Best Television Series. It’s also the ABC’s (US) longest-running comedy series to date.

Since news broke of the show’s imminent finish, we can’t help but feel a little bit sad.

What will we do without Phil Dunphy and his nuggets of wisdom?

How will Hayley and Dylan cope with being parents to twins?

What will Cam and Mitch do as Lily becomes a moody, heavy-metal loving teenager?


As you might imagine, fans are devastated. Here’s how they’re reacting on social media.




However, according to E!, a spinoff could be in the works.

“I would love it. No one would be happier if there were one,” said Burke with fans suspecting a followup series could focus on Haley and Dylan as they become young parents.”They have big plans. There are some surprises and big milestones coming. They intend to really, really go out big. So, it would be terrific if a spin off were part of that.”
