It appears Modern Family will get a proper sendoff with an 11th season consisting of a full 18 episodes.
Per sources at Deadline, the 11th and final season is nearly a done deal with the adult stars compensation being nearly finalized:
Modern Family has taken an important step toward a final 11th season. I hear that the ABC comedy series’ original adult cast, stars Ed O’Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara, are close to deals with producing studio 20th Century Fox TV to return. I hear that there are still a few outstanding issues to be resolved but an agreement on the financial terms has been reached, with all six expected to reprise their roles in a potential eleventh season, which I hear would consist of at least 18 episodes.
The negotiations have followed a similar pattern as previous with the adults being locked in first and then the kids following. From what we hear, the children’s deals are in initial stages of discussion already. We anticipate an 11th season to air in 2020.
