Modern Family: Hit US sitcom to end after 11 series

Modern Family, ABC's top rated comedy, centred on the extended Pritchett-Tucker-Dunphy family, has been picked up for an eleventh and final season, of at least 18 episodes.

ABC announced on Tuesday (February 5) that the show will be renewed for one final season before wrapping up.

Modern Family aired its 200th episode past year, reaching a milestone that's become increasingly rare for major network sitcoms (several US hits never made it to the ten-season mark, including The Office, 30 Rock, and How I Met Your Mother).

"Chris and Steve have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history", said Burke.

After a panel promoting the family show, ABC president Karey Burke was asked about a potential off-shoot.

Burke promised that the final season of Modern Family will feature "more milestone events" that long-standing fans will not want to miss.

No episode count has been announced for Modern Family's final season, but had Levitan previously told THR he expected it would receive 20 or more episodes.

So excited that #ModernFamily has been picked up for Season 11!

Launched in 2009, Modern Family steadily rose in popularity through its early years. "We're coming back for one more season". "We're all trying to figure that out", Levitan shared with THR in October of 2018.

The series had a five-year unbroken run of winning the Emmy award for outstanding comedy series between 2010 and 2014.

We'll update you with an exact release date for Modern Family season 11 when ABC makes that announcement.
