“Modern Family”s Season Finale Date Has Finally Been Announced and Fans Are Processing Their Grief

ABC

Whether it’s Christmas morning or the perfect hair day, as the saying goes: all good things must come to an end. And yes, this phrase is true even for our favorite TV shows. After 11 seasons, the beloved ABC sitcom Modern Family is finally reaching its conclusion. The sitcom made a star (and a multi-millionaire) out of Sofia Vergara, resulting in her frequently* being named the “highest paid actress on television”. 

Not only that, but the television show earned an incredible five consecutive Emmy wins for Outstanding Comedy series, tying with the record previously set by “Frasier” in the ‘90s. Although the series will be returning tonight from the holiday break to resume its final season, it is one of the last time viewers will see the show on their TV screens.

On Wednesday, ABC announced that the series’ final episode will air on April 8th. 

Although ABC had announced back in February of 2019 that the upcoming 11th season would be it’s last, the premiere date of the series’ finale was still up in the air. 

Naturally, the reveal of “Modern Family”’s farewell episode date has sparked some sadness among the cast.  “I will probably miss the people the most,” Sarah Hyland, who plays the peppy and boy-crazy Haley Dunphy, told People magazine. Our crew is amazing and, of course, I love our cast, they are very special people.” According to series’ co-creator, Steve Levitan, the show’s ending has been a long time coming, with the writers plotting the finale for the past year and a half.

As for the Latinx community, what they will ostensibly miss the most is Sofia Vergara’s hilarious and affectionate portrayal maternal Colombian bombshell, Gloria Delgado.

Although Vergara had appeared in small bits in movies and television shows, her turn as Gloria Delgado is what truly solidified her as a household name. Critics praised her performance for being “tonally perfect”, and she established herself as what The Hollywood Reporter called a “formidable comedy actress”. She was even nominated 4 times for an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. As for the criticism that her character was feeding into harmful stereotypes as the “fiery Latina”, Vergara paid it no mind, saying, “I am Gloria, my mother is Gloria, my aunts are Gloria. [Gloria is] colorful, she’s honest, she’s out there, she cares about people. She’s loud, but I am loud. She’s crazy, but I am crazy.”

Vergara, for her part, is confident that Gloria’s story will end exactly how it’s supposed to. “Gloria has such a great life and such a beautiful family that I think anything that the writers have prepared for her, I’m going to be happy with,” Vergara recently told BuzzFeed. “I’m sure that it’s gonna be great, like all the seasons’ finales.”

And although ABC execs have previously expressed interest in continuing the series via a spin-off, the showrunners say there “no plans” on the books yet for such a project.

So that means that the final upcoming episodes will likely be the last time “Modern Family” fans get to see new installments of the adventures of the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker family. Description of how ABC is airing a “presenting a fan-curated tribute on March 11. ABC will kick off the night in prime time with the series’ very first episode, followed by favorite episodes that fans get to vote on next month.”

One thing’s for sure about “Modern Family” the success and staying-power of the unconventional family sitcom was proof that America loves to see their diversity reflected to them in their media. There is no one “right” way to be a family and “Modern Family” proved more accurately than any show before it that our commonalities are more plentiful than our differences. 

Although fans have known about “Modern Family”‘s final season for a while, that didn’t stop them from expressing their sadness on Twitter. 

“Modern Family” has been on the air for over ten years. It’s not surprising that fans are already grieving the show that has been part of their lives for so long. 

This fan is still in complete denial over the show’s impending conclusion:

Aww, the first stage of grief. We felt the same way when “Gossip Girl” ended.

This Latina had no words to describe her sadness over the final season:

Sometimes, the deepest emotions are best expressed in GIF form.

This person was getting deep in their feelings when watching the Christmas episode:

It was definitely around the Christmas episode that we started to finally recognize how much we were going to miss this show in our lives. 

And in the perfect fashion, this devastated fan laid all the blame at Cam’s feet. 

Hey, someone’s gotta be the bad guy!
