‘MODERN FAMILY’ WILL KILL OFF A CHARACTER THIS SEASON
Written by Rick Rizer on September 14, 2018
There is going to be a major death on the upcoming 10th season of “Modern Family.” Christopher Lloyd, one of the show’s co-creators, opened up about an episode happening in the first half of the season. “We’re handling some bigger life events in this season,” he 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.” The character who is dying was not revealed, but Lloyd says it will be a “significant character on the series” and the death “will be a moving event – and an event that has repercussions across several episodes.” The character who dies might not necessarily be one of the core Dunphy family members.
