Modern Family will kill off a ‘significant’ character this season
Modern Family will get a touch darker this year with the death of a key player.
Whether it’s one of the central characters who’s about to bite the dust remains to be seen, but co-creator Christopher Lloyd has said that the departing person will be “significant”.
He told Entertainment Weekly: “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.”
The show is about to start its tenth season, and there are no plans to end it just yet.
“I think there’s a decent chance we’ll see [season 11] happen,” Lloyd added.
“I hope there is. From our standpoint creatively we’ve gotten excited writing this season and changing the lives of the characters — some in a significant way — and it’s made us think, ‘Wow, there’s a lot to explore in the lives of these characters’.”
For now, season 10 begins on September 26 in the US.
