Modern Family Says Goodbye After 11 Seasons
Endings are inherently somber, but they can also mark a gale of tremendous success, as was the case with the finale episode of Modern Family. On April 8th, the ABC sitcom ended its award-winning 11 year-run on primetime television.
“A very rare thing in Hollywood is a commercial success and a critical success. All a wonderful mix,” ICM Partners’ client Chris Lloyd, one of the show’s co-creators told Variety. “To say goodbye to all of that is very difficult. And everyone knows you won’t be on a show like this again. You won’t be around this group of people again.”
In addition to Lloyd, who also holds many writing and story credits within the show’s 250 episodes, we would also like to congratulate a number of ICM Partners’ clients for their involvement in the award-winning comedy.
Our Talent clients Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen, and Ty Burrell will be sorely missed as their characters Mitchell Pritchett, Claire Dunphy, and Phil Dunphy, respectively. We would also like to congratulate Gail Mancuso, who directed the finale episode as well as the season premiere, Michael Spiller, who also directed an episode of the show’s final season, and Jason Winer, who directed the unforgettable pilot and many episodes throughout the show’s 11 seasons.
Modern Family was the recipient of 22 Primetime Emmy Awards, one Golden Globe Award, three Television Critics Awards, two awards from the Directors Guild, six awards from the Writers Guild, five awards from the Screen Actors Guild, and four awards from the American Film Institute.
Congratulations to everyone involved in Modern Family.
