Modern Family - Renewed for a 9th and 10th Season

The 10 stars of the five-time Emmy-winning family series have inked new rich contracts to return to the network's top comedy, which has been renewed for a ninth and 10th season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. It's unclear if season 10 of the Emmy darling will be its last. The renewal is for 44 total episodes, 22 per season.

“We are beyond thrilled that we get to spend more time with these characters, these amazing actors, our ridiculously talented writers and our incredible crew — all of whom are like family to us. And the good kind of family, not the kind that argues with you all the time,” co-creator/co-showrunner Steve Levitan said.

Sources say the stars have each scored raises to remain with the comedy from showrunners Levitan and Chris Lloyd and producers 20th Century Fox Television. Securing raises are the six primary stars — Sofia Vergara (Gloria), Julie Bowen (Claire), Ty Burrell (Phil), Eric Stonestreet (Cameron), Jessie Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell) and Ed O’Neill (Jay) — as well as younger cast members Rico Rodriguez (Manny), Nolan Gould (Luke), Sarah Hyland (Haley) and Ariel Winter (Alex).

"Modern Family has been the centerpiece of our comedy brand for eight seasons and we are thrilled to have it on our schedule for two more years," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said. "Steve and Chris have created such endearing characters, and the cast is second-to-none.”
