Modern Family renewed for 11th and final season

"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", said Karey Burke, President of ABC Entertainment.

"Modern Family" cast members Julie Bowen (Claire Dunphy), Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell Pritchett), Eric Stonestreet (Cameron Tucker), Sarah Hyland (Haley Dunphy), Nolan Gould (Luke Dunphy), and Ariel Winter (Alex Dunphy).

The hit sitcom has been renewed for an 11th season, which will serve as the show's final one, ABC announced Tuesday at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California. Created by Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, the domestic comedy revolving around an extended family that won five consecutive Emmy Awards for best comedy series from 2010 to 2014.

Modern Family has seen its audience decline in recent seasons but it consistently ranks among ABC's top five scripted series.

The producers considered bringing the show to a close following its ongoing 10th season, but changed their mind as they workshopped ideas for new episodes.

"'It would make for a very lively last season, but if we end up doing another season-and I think it's looking a little bit more likely that will happen-we'll just throw all these changes into people's lives, which is only good in terms of new stuff for us to explore".

At the time of its premiere, "Modern Family's" portrayal of blended families and same-sex partners was groundbreaking, especially for a broadcast network.

'And I'm not sure it would be a full season.
