ABC has enjoyed eleven seasons of one of modern television's most successful comedy shows, but as it announced early in January, Modern Family will conclude its final season in less than two months.

The network plans to air the series finale on April 8, just over a year since it debuted in September of 2009.

In that decade-long span, the show has won over 20 Primetime Emmy Awards and garnered countless others, including the Golden Globes, Directors Guild of America, and Screen Actors Guild.

In January, ABC announced the decision to conclude the show alongside How To Get Away With Murder.

Stars from the show were quick to voice their disappointment.

"I will probably miss the people the most, from Modern,” star Sarah Hyland told PEOPLE of what she will miss the most about the show. “Our crew is amazing and, of course, I love our cast, they are very special people."

In addition to the finale, ABC announced that it would allow fans to decide which episodes will air on an entire night dedicated to the show.


On March 11, from 8:00 -11:00 PM, ABC will air the show's pilot followed by all the episodes voted on by fans of the show. Voting occurred from Feb. 3 to Feb. 7 on Twitter.

"The night will kick off with the episode that started it all—the Modern Family series premiere—followed by five additional fan-chosen episodes, giving viewers a chance to gather their families for the ultimate Modern Family binge and relive some of the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan's most hilarious, jaw-dropping and monumental moments," ABC wrote in a statement.

Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cameron Tucker on the show, expressed his sorrow on Instagram shortly after ABC's announcement.

"I'm so thankful and grateful to have had this job for the last 10 years and that I get to do it for one more year with this talented group of beauties," he wrote.

Sofia Vergara, who plays Gloria Delgado-Prichett and became the top-earning television actress for several years in the 2010s due to the show, reflected on what a pleasant experience she has had.

“It’s been a pleasure and an honor to be able to play Gloria Pritchett on TV,” Vergara said in an interview with Yahoo Entertainment. “I lived around a woman that reminded me a lot of Gloria. You know, very colorful, very passionate, very loud, very fun. I wouldn’t change anything about Gloria.”

You can still catch the remainder of season 11, as well as stream the show in its entirety, on ABC. Check your local listings for specific times and dates.
