‘MODERN FAMILY’ PICKED UP FOR ITS 11TH AND FINAL SEASON

Currently in its 10th season, ABC announced today that it has
picked up the Emmy® Award-winning series “Modern Family” for an
11th and final season. This wonderfully large and blended family
will continue to delight audiences for the 2019-2020 fall schedule with its
honest and often hilarious look into the warm and sometimes twisted embrace
of the modern family. Produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in
association with Steven Levitan Productions and Picador Productions, the
series airs Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. EST on The ABC Television Network,
streaming and on demand.

“Chris and Steve have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies
in television history,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. “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.”

“For 10 years, our characters have bravely faced turning points in life and
moved through them to great personal enrichment; we have chosen a different
path by doing one more season of ‘Modern Family,’” said co-creator and
executive producer Christopher Lloyd.

“Even after 10 years together, we realized there are still some things our
writers don’t yet know about each other’s sex lives,” said co-creator and
executive producer Steve Levitan.

ABC’s “Modern Family” ranks No. 1 in Wednesday’s 9:00 p.m. half-hour among
Adults 18-49 (2.1/9) and places among TV’s Top 5 comedies this season (No.
4). A five-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series, “Modern Family”
remains one of the most heavily awarded comedy series on television,
including a Golden Globe® win, four SAG Award wins for
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, a Peabody Award,
two GLAAD Media Awards, two NAACP Image Awards, six WGA awards, four PGA
awards, a Television Critics award along with dozens of individual wins by
the show’s award-winning cast.

Ferguson as Mitchell Pritchett, Eric Stonestreet as Cameron Tucker, Sarah
Hyland as Haley Dunphy, Nolan Gould as Luke Dunphy, Ariel Winter as Alex
