Season 11 is the last season of ABC’s comedy, ‘Modern Family’

It feels like we’ve gone through everything with this family. Viewers saw Alex head off for college, Jay adopt Stella, and Claire take over for her dad in the closet business. Cam became a high school football coach and Joe learned to tie his shoes. We even saw Hayley have her twins.

This modern family had some tough times, like Phil’s mom passing and some really good times, like Cam and Mitch’s wedding. Now, it’s all coming to an end. After over a decade of making viewers laugh and winning a handful of Emmy Awards, ABC’s Modern Family is finally saying goodbye with its 11th season.

“For ten years, our characters have bravely faced turning points in life and moved through them to great personal enrichment; we have chosen a different path by doing one more season of Modern Family,” said co-creator and executive producer Christopher Lloyd in a statement. So, when is the finale of season 11?
