The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan are ready to say goodbye but not before giving fans one final night of belly laughs as one of television’s great family comedies. Currently in its 11th and final season, ABC announced today that the Emmy® Award-winning series “Modern Family” will air its series farewell episode on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, on ABC.
Critically lauded for revitalizing the television sitcom when it premiered in fall 2009, “Modern Family” also quickly cemented itself as a culturally defining series. The show featured characters who lived their lives on their own terms, broke down stereotypes and shared their biggest embarrassments, mishaps, tender and funny moments with the world. The recipient of a record five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, “Modern Family” tied the Emmy Award record previously set by “Frasier.” As the series counts down to the finale, this wonderfully large and blended family will continue to delight audiences with its honest and often hilarious look into the warm and sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
