We have some bad news, Modern Family fans. After announcing that the series will be renewed for an 11th season today, February 5th, Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, released a statement clarifying that the upcoming season will also be the show’s last. “[Co-creators Christopher Lloyd and Steven 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.”
The news isn’t exactly unexpected—at least not to those of us who closely follow the show. There was previously talk that the current 10th season would be the last, and Lloyd even alluded to the fact that he was unsure if the show would be renewed for another season when he spoke to E! News back in November. And we admittedly get it…11 years is a long time, and all good things must come to an end at some point.
However, that doesn’t necessarily make it easy. And Twitter is currently in mourning.
We get it, guys. We’re right there with you.
