Why Could Modern Family Season 11 Be The Finale?
There are many reason and indications that makes Modern Family Season 11 the finale of the television series. The first indication was given by the directors Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan, that they saw the show as having a finite life. This was seen back in 2018 with the launch of season 10 when they wrapped the television series and called Modern Family Season 10 the final season.
In an interview with THR Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan told the interviewer that this would be the last season and they have no plans further to extend the show’s life.
But somehow as the demand for another season increased the producers change their minds and came up with Modern Family Season 11 in 2019. The major reason for Modern Family Season 11 being the finale is that it was made on orders, not by Levitan’s insistence.
Why Modern Family Was Canceled?
There are various possible reasons for Modern Family Season 12 not happening. The first one is the Levitan’s wish, as we already told you Modern Family Season 11 was specially ordered and the directors Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan were in no mood for it.
So, it is expected that they won’t be producing Modern Family Season 12.
The next reason is the contracts of the lead cast. The lead cast has been signed for Ten seasons and for Modern Family Season 11, the cast hiked their prices and the total cost of production increased.
As far as Modern Family Season 12 is Concerned this raised production cost would play a major role in the next season which is Modern Family Season 12 not happening.
The next and foremost reason that could be responsible for Modern Family Season 12 not happening is the decline in the viewership and ratings of the show.
It has been observed that Modern Family Season 11 has got almost half the number of viewers when compared to season 8. This decline in the number of viewership and ratings indicate that it is the perfect time to wrap the show.
How Will Modern Family Season 12 Plot Be?
Although the Filmmakers have called season 11 the finale of the television series Modern Family there is a possibility if the producers want to continue the series they can move ahead with the plot we have disclosed.
Modern Family Season 11 was filled with many new things, we have seen Mitchell and Can move to the new house and adopt the baby. We have also seen Hayley’s motherhood and Phil and Claire trying to adjust to being Grandparents.
When compared to season 1, season 11 character dynamics are totally different and for Modern Family Season 12, it would be a perfect plot to take those changes further. The new season can be on Mitchell and Can raising their children and it can also have Lily, their oldest daughter encountering a Teenage experience.
