What Can We Expect from Modern Family Season 11?

Modern family season 11

When you enjoy a show on television, you sometimes forget how much time has passed. That’s certainly the case with watching Modern Family. It’s been almost 10 years since the first episode aired back in September of 2009, and so many things have happened on the show and with the Pritchett-Dunphy clan. We’ve literally seen the kids grow up on television, and we’ve grown to consider them part of the family–somehow. It’s sad to say goodbye, but we all know that all good things must come to an end eventually. Modern Family is saying farewell with its 11th season coming this fall.

Given that this will be the last time we’ll see the family get together on screen, we can safely expect crazier times than usual. The show has become quite an iconic series over the years, and it’s managed to stay strong for the entire time it was on the air. We’re pretty sure that there will be lots of tears to be shed and belly laughs to be had, but that’s almost a given on a show like Modern Family. However, EOnline.com reports that there will be plenty of other milestones to be had in this last season. We know that season 10 gave us a glimpse into so many family milestones, but we also thought that season 10 was going to be the final season of the show.

The creators of Modern Family, Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, assured us that we really haven’t seen everything just yet. It’s exciting to think about what could those writers possibly mean, but you could almost cringe at the notion as well. The family has done some pretty outrageous things in the past, and we’re fairly certain that they will take it even farther this season.

The season 10 finale was quite a big one for everyone in the show. This article from MSN.com outlines Sarah Hyland’s big moment in the entire series. Hyland’s character Haley gave birth to twins in the finale, which is a great set up for season 11 to start with. It’s quite a circle of life moment for the show, considering that Hyland’s character was only a kid when Modern Family first aired. Now that the Pritchett-Dunphy clan is growing, we could only cross our fingers for a spinoff announcement before the show completely closes its doors.

We can expect all the original stars to come back. The adults are definitely signed on, and that includes Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet. According to Countryliving.com, the renewal for season 11 relied heavily on the return of all the original kids–Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. Considering that the final season has been announced, we can probably expect every member of the gang to show up. It’ll be a great way to end the series, with all of the family together on screen.

It may start to sound a bit too emotional, but don’t get confused. The final season will have lots of big moments, but we’ll also get the usual family nonsense. The laughs will certainly be there. Phil will still be Phil. Gloria’s accent is still heavily there after all these years. Besides the adults aging some more and the kids growing up, the Pritchett-Dunphy family is still the same modern family. Many of the stars from the show have posted tributes already. Jesse Tyler Ferguson stated in an Instagram post just how emotional the final year would be getting to work with the best cast once more. It’s a good reminder that the TV family is much like a real family off screen, and this is probably why everyone in Modern Family has that dynamite chemistry. We’ll expect to see more of this chemistry in season 11, but we’ll probably see it with a little dab of sadness and a little dab of finality as well. The show might set up its ending to be open to any future spinoffs, and the possibilities are essentially endless. Regardless, we know it’s going to be a terrific final year, as we’ve come to expect from a show that has given nothing less than its best over the last 10 years.

The network said that they’ll be releasing a full series, so we get to have anywhere from 18 to 22 episodes before we have to say goodbye for good. Creatively, the writers haven’t really lost inspiration despite the fact that we’ve literally been watching the show for 10 years. That’s a lot of episodes of creative thinking. And thankfully throughout the years, we’ve never had to watch a character get killed off. Although we saw Shelley Long’s quiet passing in season 10, that was pretty much it. According to this article from TV Guide, Long’s character was Ed O’Neill’s ex-wife on the show. As important as her character was to the family, she really didn’t play a major role in the episode-to-episode aspect. It might be safe to say that we’re not going to lose anyone to death this finale. The season will probably play homage to itself, and we can probably expect a neatly tied bow at the end of it all.

The show has won a total of 22 Emmy Awards over the years, and its achievements don’t end there. Modern Family has set the standard for family-type dramas, and to this day, its appeal has truly been outstanding. We could probably say thanks to the brains behind the cast because they did a phenomenal job putting the Pritchett-Dunphy family together. Other TV families might try to give it a go, but Modern Family will be quite difficult to replace.
