When is Modern Family ending?

Unfortunately for fans, Modern Family is ending sooner than we thought. Based on the previous 10 seasons being between 22 and 24 episodes long and ending in the spring, we are expecting the series to wrap up sometime in mid-May 2020. However, the total amount of episodes for Season 11 has not yet been confirmed by the network.

Well, at least we can still look forward to seven whole months of the series!
