Here's what 'Modern Family' cast is doing next after the epic sitcom ends with Season 11
Having spent years with their favorite characters, dedicated fans can't help but wonder what awaits the actors after the show and we've got answers
Just like the wave of emotions fans are experiencing with 'Modern Family' Season 11 nearing its end, its long-loved cast members are also fighting back tears through the bittersweet farewell.
Bidding goodbye to characters who entertained us for over a decade and have gotten imprinted on our minds isn’t going to be easy. However, having spent years with their favorite characters, any dedicated fan of the hit sitcom can't help but wonder what awaits the actors once 'Modern Family' concludes.
While some of the 'Modern Family' actors are extremely active on social media, sharing their last few moments with fellow actors from the sets, the rest seem to be already working on their future projects.
Julie Bowen, who plays the matriarch of the Dunphy family, had initially planned on focusing on producing and directing until she got a call for a new series titled 'Raised by Wolves', according to AP News.
'Raise by Wolves' is created by David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, who are known for 'Will and Grace'. Calling it "an offer I could not turn down", Julie said, "We’re in a holding pattern.... I'm assuming there’s going to be life again. It’s really hard at this moment to know what’s what."
Meanwhile, Ty Burrell, who essays Claire’s husband Phil Dunphy's role, revealed, "I was planning on taking time to be with my family over the course of this year." He will be playing a voice role in the animated comedy 'Duncanville' post 'Modern Family' and has plans of trying his hand in production.
Similar to his character Manny Delgado, Rico Rodriguez has some big plans for his future following 'Modern Family'. He and his sister have started a production company that will see him write and produce their own material. He also said that he is open to outside opportunities. "I'm down for anything," he said.
In another recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Sarah Hyland, who is popular for playing Haley Dunphy said, "The thing as an actor is, it’s like, Will I have a job tomorrow? With Modern Family ending, it’s like, Oh, great. I'm never going to work again. I'm going to have to sell everything and live out of a shoebox."
It remains to be seen what the future holds for the rest of our favorite actors from the hit series.
'Modern Family' Season 11 finale airs on April 8 on ABC.
