As with many American sitcoms, 'Modern Family' has reached is tenth season and is now at a a pivotal moment of change, although in this case it takes an unwanted and tragic turn. Christopher Lloyd, co-creator of the series, has said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that a "significant character" will die in the new season of the sitcom.
Lloyd, of course, did not reveal which character exactly would be passing to the other side, but he assured that it will have a strong impact on the rest of the characters during the episodes following the death.
Will there be more 'Modern Family'?
With this tenth season of 'Modern Family' the actors' contracts, which were signed so many years ago, now come to an end, thus leaving the potential of future seasons unclear. Despite this, Lloyd assured that "there's goodwill on both sides to make it happen, but there's also complicated matters that have to get worked through".
The new season of 'Modern Family' will premiere on 26th September.
