ABC Network announced today (Tuesday, February 5) Modern Family is officially renewed for its 11th season, which will also be its final season.
The show has been a major success for ABC with five Emmy awards in the Outstanding Comedy Series category, four SAG Awards, and a Golden Globe award over the past decade. It will finish three seasons short of the longest-running sitcom ever, "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet."
Modern Family , which is ABC’s longest running comedy, is rated in TV’s top five comedies in viewers and is No. 1 in its 9 p.m. half hour spot on Wednesdays in the 18-to-49 age group that demographic advertisers seek.
The final season is set to air in the 2019-2020 fall season. An earlier version of this post said it was due to air next year.
