ABC’s mockumentary family sitcom Modern Family is all set to say goodbye to its fans this week.
After airing a total of 11 seasons, the series will end its run with a two-part series finale. Many of the show’s fans are torn between being excited to watch how things will end for each of the characters and being emotional over the fact that it is farewell for good to the misadventures of the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan.
Questions about what’s next for the cast members are swirling around though. Fortunately, reports reveal that while Modern Family has come to an end, followers of the show can still catch some of the cast members in their next projects.
