Hit show 'Modern Family' set to end after 11 seasons

Hit show 'Modern Family' set to end after 11 seasons”

"I can't wait to return for a final season with my Modern Family", Rodriguez wrote.

The 20th Century Fox Television series has been an anchor of ABC's primetime schedule since its premiere in 2009.

Variety confirmed the wholly inoffensive show will hit screens once more across the 2019-2020 season, nearly a full year after creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd said Season 10 would likely be the last.

President of ABC Entertainment Karey Burke made the announcement at the Television Critics Association on Tuesday, saying the single-camera domestic comedy created by Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd would come to an end, Variety reported.

Modern Family this season is averaging 5.1 million total viewers and a 1.4 demo rating, down 10 and 15 percent from Season 9 but still ranking as ABC's No. 2 comedy (behind The Conners) and No. 4 series overall.

'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'. The show, now in its 10th season, had been expected to wrap its run with season 11.

Meanwhile, Levitan joked, "Even after 10 years together, we realized there are still some things our writers don't yet know about each other's sex lives". It means we'll say goodbye to the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker crew in 2020. "Love my family", star Jesse Tyler Ferguson said on social media.

There is now no word on which cast members will be returning for the final season, but it's probably safe to assume we'll get all the series regulars including Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Ed O'Neill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson Eric Stonestreet and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons.
