Is it over for “Modern Family?

The series has just wrapped up its sixth season but during the screening of this season’s finale, Julie Bowen who plays Claire Dunphy and Ed O’Neil were asked if their hit show is ending.

“It will, you know. I saw ‘Mad Men’ went off the other day, and that’s just how it works. That’s all,” said O’ Neil.

As for Bowen, “Oh, it’s coming!”

The end of the series may be something that the team behind it are thinking about since they are now heading to their seventh season and Alex is off to college already. When Haley went off to college, I thought it’s almost the end for the show because one family member out of the picture anymore changes the game because the concept of the TV series is all about family. However, the producers have managed to turn things around and we still get to see Haley. It is a good twist. But what about now? Is it really time for the show to end?

Executive producer Christopher Lloyd and co-creator Steven Levitan both agree that they’re not yet there but that doesn’t mean that ending the show is not on their mind, “We’d like to think we’re still maybe a couple years away. I think about it all the time. A lot of it is going to be take it year by year. We want to keep it going for as long as possible. but we very much also want to protect the show’s legacy. We want to go out strong,” Levitan said.

Well, I’m hoping for more years to come for this show because this is definitely one of the best shows today!
