Modern Family Is Going to Kill a Character, But Who?

At the risk of playing the most morbid game of Guess Who? ever, which "significant character" do you predict will meet an untimely end in Season 10? Not a good surprise, though: In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Christopher Lloyd said that there will be a death during the first half of the season.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly published on Thursday, Christopher Lloyd told the outlet that they're "handling some bigger life events" in season 10, premiering on September 26, including death.

"We're handling some bigger life events in this season", Lloyd told the magazine.

"We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it's not easy to do because that's a heavy subject", the creator explained.

"Shelley Long has guest starred as DeDe on Modern Family seven times over nine seasons, after being introduced in the Season 1 Episode" The Incident". The upcoming Season 10 is the second year of a two-year pickup, and the network has been eyeing an 11th.

The pay cuts, imposed by the government and the industry, have had a noticeable chilling effect upon China's entertainment sector. The actress' studio and reps say that the claims against her are slander and that she hired a lawyer to dispute the allegations.


'I hope there is.

The show, which has made household names out of all the stars, including Sofia Vergara, Sarah Hyland, and Ariel Winter, has been on air since 2009 and will premiere its 10th season later this month. Given the relentlessness of old age, there's also the possibility that one of the main characters' senior parents can bite the dust, like Phil's father Frank (played by Fred Willard).

"I'm hoping that we have some news on that [soon], and if it winds up that we tried and just couldn't make it work, we will have a great final season for sure".

Modern Family returns Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on ABC.
