Modern Family expects to end with Season 10
"Our plan is to end it at 10,” says co-creator Steven Levitan as the ABC comedy celebrates tonight's 200th episode. “If we can leave with most of our audience wanting more, I think that's the right way to do it. Never say never, but I just can't imagine that we'd go past that.” Co-creator Christopher Lloyd says they have begun to form some "loose ideas" about how to end the series, which is currently in its ninth season. "We went through these questions on Frasier, when we brought that around after 11 seasons and sort of said, 'Well, the Shakespearean route on that is a birth, a death or a wedding,' and we managed to effectively do all three in the final episode," says Lloyd, who was Frasier’s showrunner. "So it may be some conversation that starts there, but we haven't figured out the episode we're doing three weeks from now. It's just a little over a year and a half from now. We've got time to think about that."
