Things are about to get really emotional on “Modern Family”.
The show’s co-creator Christopher Lloyd — no, not “Back to the Future” Christopher Lloyd — says a character’s death will shake the core of the popular program.
“We’re handling some bigger life events in this season,” Lloyd told Entertainment Weekly. “We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it’s not easy to do because that’s a heavy subject. But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it.”
Lloyd said the death of a “significant character on the series will be a moving event — and an event that has repercussions across several episodes.”
He and co-creator Steve Levitan heavily suggested season 10 of “Modern Family” would be the las, but the pair are in discussions with ABC about a potential 11th season.
Season 10 of “Modern Family” premieres Sept. 26.
