What do the cast feel?
The cast from the series expressed how they feel on their favourite show coming to an end. Jesse Tyler who plays Mitchell in Modern family wrote on twitter that said— “New @ModernFam is on tonight. Only a few more until we say good bye forever. These 11 seasons have been the time of MY life!”
On working with her on-screen father, Julie Bowen says— “One of the highlights of my career has been working alongside the legendary Ed O’Neill…#modernfamily” Aubrey Anderson-Emmons A.K.A. Lily shared some glimpses on Instagram with a very emotional caption, “so hard to believe it’s over. Today was a long and emotional day but we feel so fortunate to have been a part of something so special. We love you all, our modern family family.”
What will the finale look like?
Right after the special episode, the fans will probably be too nervous to watch the final episode of the series. Fans would be kidding themselves if they denied not being emotional about the end.
In an interview with EW, Ty Burrell who has won two Emmys said— “It was like a beautiful torture. It was like being at a wedding and a funeral at the same time.”
The finale would be a continuation of everything that has happened so far. From Mitch and Cam deciding to adopt a baby boy, Phil and Claire finding some time for themselves away from their three kids and two grandkids who all live under the same roof, to Jay and Gloria beginning to get used to a change in their family dynamic.
The episode would also be incomplete without a final sibling rivalry. The audience will be in for a treat as they will get to witness their favourite family being their best selves as they could have ever been.
