It has a total of 75 nominations to its name and has also been a constant presence at the Golden Globe Awards. Its worldwide popularity has prompted three successful adaptations in other countries.

We have chosen a different path by doing one more season of Modern Family.” Actress Ariel Winter expressed her thoughts on the final series with THR. “It’s strange to think that it’s coming to an end.

Modern Family Plot: What is it about?

‘Modern Family’ is a depiction of the way current families function. Through different units, it portrays different kinds of relationships. There is the idea of a nuclear family while being a part of a giant unit. There is a step relationship as well as the exploration of same-sex marriage. All these undercurrents and more are presented to the audience through the day to day lives of the Pritchetts. The personal and professional lives of the characters clash and they often find themselves in some tricky situations. Apart from making the audience laugh, the series also touches upon a lot of issues. From the impact of technology and social media on current lifestyle to the complicated procedure of raising one’s kid, with every seasonal arc, the show brings highly relatable content to the audience, which is what makes it so popular.

The show has been around for ten years and all the characters have come a long way. In season 10, it is revealed that DeDe, who plays Claire and Mitchell’s mother, is the one who passes away after battling a heart condition which she had chosen to not disclose to the family. Steve Levitan said about the death, “It occurred to us that death is a giant part of the family experience, and while Phil (Ty Burrell) had lost his mother in a previous episode, we’ve never seen the entire family have to deal with such a loss. It seemed like an interesting thing to have happen.”
