Modern Family creators Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd have confirmed that the Emmy-award winning series will come to an end with it's upcoming tenth season. The ninth season is currently airing.
“Our plan is to end it at ten. If we can leave with most of our audience wanting more, I think that’s the right way to do it,” Levitan said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “Never say never, but I just can’t imagine that we’d go past that.”
And, hey, he's not wrong! The show has maintained impressive critical acclaim and an unwavering fan-base for the better part of a decade, so why not exit on a high and on their own terms? After all, there's nothing worse than a show that wraps without half the original cast and a panicked, senseless finale.
At least we have one more season and approximately 24 more episodes until we have to bid farewell to our beloved Pritchett family.
