Fans who are waiting with bated breath to watch the last few episodes of ABC's legendary sitcom 'Modern Family' Season 11 might have to wait a tad bit longer to catch up on Episode 16. 'I'm Going to Miss This' will not air this week as the show has decided to take a week-long break before airing its final episodes. 

Episode 16 will premiere on April 1 instead of March 26 and the 30-second-long trailer features a couple of classic moments that defined the series for over a decade, including their customary humor and display of emotions that tug at your heartstrings. 

The official synopsis for Episode 16 states: "Mitchell is having a hard time letting go of his old life and Gloria steps in to help him say goodbye. Meanwhile, Haley, Luke, and Alex decide to throw a party at the Dunphy house when Claire and Phil leave for a trip, and Dylan’s mom takes the twins for the night."

In the previous episode titled 'Baby Steps', Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron Tucker (Eric Stonestreet) agree to adopt a baby boy despite going back and forth with their decision. While the synopsis teases a painful goodbye, the trailer gives a glimpse of the family’s last Christmas, during which Cameron had announced that he, Mitch and Lily (Aubrey Frances Anderson-Emmons) would be relocating to Missouri.

Is it possible that Mitch and Cameron have decided to move to a new city for good? Why is Mitchell finding it hard to bid a goodbye if the couple isn’t going away from their extended newfangled family? 

The upcoming episode also teases the Dunphy siblings' misadventures as Claire (Julie Bowen) and Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) take off on a trip. Perhaps, some alone time with one another in their parents' absence may bring them closer, or might simply put them through a ride they weren’t prepared for. Either way, we’ll learn if the children of the 'Modern Family' are ready to embark on a new journey on their own. 

Haley Dunphy (Sarah Hyland) and Dylan’s (Reid Ewing) parenting skills could be put to test as Dylan's mother agrees to take the twins with her for the night. How are they going to deal with the situation should there be a mishap?

'Modern Family' Season 11 airs on Wednesdays on ABC.
