After 11 seasons, 22 Emmy Awards, and 12 Golden Globe nominations, ABC’s Modern Family has finally come to an end. However, a spin-off may be in the works soon.
The series finale aired Wednesday night (April 8), bringing the mockumentary sitcom to an end. The show pioneered LGBTQ inclusivity on network television, particularly with gay couple Cam and Mitchell. The show is tied for being the most nominated scripted TV series in GLAAD Media Award history with Will and Grace and Grey’s Anatomy.
Fans may get to see more of Mitch and Cam, however, as some of the show’s co-creators are reportedly talking about a spinoff for the couple.
Series co-creator Steve Levitan told Deadline that, while he’s not personally planning on working on a spinoff, “there are a couple of writers who are thinking about” a Mitch and Cam spinoff, “but they’re literally just thinking about it.”
“They’re using this time that we have now to think about it, if there’s something there,” he continued. “I’m not driving this, but I’m a huge fan of [actors] Jesse [Tyler Ferguson] and Eric [Stonestreet], and those characters are of course near and dear to me, and I certainly think that they’re strong enough to carry a show.”
Talking to the Hollywood Reporter, co-creator Christopher Lloyd said that a potential spinoff “can’t just be more Modern Family; it’s got to be some of our show but with new characters mixed in, perhaps.”
