When it comes to Modern Family’s ultimate ending, the men are already being a little more heartfelt about the impending event than the ladies in the cast. After news broke that Modern Family would be returning for Season 11 (yay!) but would then be cancelled (boo!), cast members including Jesse Tyler Ferguson and more revealed their feelings about leaving behind their TV family and more.
Will be hard to say goodbye. Love my family.
Representing the younger portion of the cast. Nolan Gould, who plays Luke on the long-running show, shared a lovely cast photo along with a message of thanks regarding getting one more year to hang out with the cast and wrap up the narrative. He also thanked the fans of the ABC comedy for sticking around over the long haul.
He also recorded a video saying a lot of similar stuff.
Then there’s Eric Stonestreet, who humorously shared the photo he took of himself with an actual camera right before his audition way back in 2009. That’s an original selfie, man. He also told fellow actors to always continue to put themselves out there and to follow their dreams, noting,
Before playing Cam, Eric Stonestreet had been acting since 1999, but on television had mostly taken one-off guest stints on a variety of programs before the ABC gig. He had an occasional recurring role on CSI in the early 2000s,but Modern Family was his big break and it’s still the role the actor is most known for.
Other cast members, including Sarah Hyland, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen and Ariel Winter, haven’t officially commented about their feelings regarding the end of the series yet; granted, the show won’t be ending for a long while. (Julie Bowen did previously speak out about how she felt pretty good about the chances the show would come back for at least one season, and it turns out her prediction was right.) Currently, we’re only in the winter of Modern Family’s 10th season, and an 11th season will most definitely be coming, according to ABC.
The show has seen a lot of changes this season –including a pregnancy -- and we’ll have to wait and see exactly how the sitcom ends up panning out. For now, you can catch new episodes on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET. Take a look at what else is still hitting the schedule in 2019 with our midseason premiere guide.
