In terms of Modern Family, the pending $52.4 billion Fox-Disney deal is expected to play a larger role in talks between ABC and 20th Century Fox Television about whether the Emmy-winning comedy will run beyond its upcoming 10th season. Co-creator and co-showrunner Steve Levitan previously said was the “plan is to end it at 10,” though that was before producers 20th Century Fox Television were poised to become a Disney property should the deal close as expected. That would eliminate one of the biggest obstacles to the show’s renewal, with ABC no longer left to pay a sizable licensing fee to 20th TV for the series. What’s more, it would incentivize ABC to renew the star-studded comedy for a potential 11th season and boost its own bottom line.
