Modern Family bosses have confirmed that a character will be killed off in Season 10. "We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it's not easy to do because that's a heavy subject".
'But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it'. Will this be the last-ever season for the veteran comedy that won a record-tying five consecutive Outstanding Comedy Series Emmys (and has been nominated every year but this one)?
Fans have taken to Twitter to speculate on who the character is.
Lloyd said that the death "will be a moving event...that has repercussions across several episodes". Hyland herself responded to the troubling teaser.
Well, that'll be the joy of discovery that awaits you when Modern Family kicks off season 10 on September 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. While Lloyd isn't sure what the future of the show will be, he would love to continue its characters' journeys. So our standpoint was, 'Well, if we can do another season, we may as well.
However, he made it clear that he'd return if ABC asked them to mush on past Season 10, but he's also willing to say "goodbye" to the hit series after a ten-year run.
