Christopher Lloyd On ‘Modern Family’: A "Significant Character" Will Die This Season

Tony Rivetti  ABC

And while it remains to be seen if ABC will re-up with the Dunphy family, the show's co-creator Christopher Lloyd has said this season is going to change Modern Family forever. Not a good surprise, though: In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Christopher Lloyd said that there will be a death during the first half of the season.

"We're handling some bigger life events in this season", he told the magazine.

'But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it'.

Lloyd tells EW that the unidentified character's passing "will be a moving event ... that has repercussions across several episodes".

At the risk of playing the most morbid game of Guess Who? ever, which "significant character" do you predict will meet an untimely end in Season 10?

"There's goodwill on both sides to make it happen, but there's also complicated matters that have to get worked through, and there's a time constraint on it, because we can't have it take too long", he says of a possible 11th season.

The five-time best comedy series Emmy victor stars Ed O'Neill, Sofia Veragra, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ariel Winter, Sarah Hyland, Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Jeremy Maguire.

The show, which has made household names out of all the stars, including Sofia Vergara, Sarah Hyland, and Ariel Winter, has been on air since 2009 and will premiere its 10th season later this month.

While the program is entering the a year ago of its contract, Lloyd is optimistic that "goodwill on both sides" will extend the show's life ― even if one character's life is being cut short.

It's unclear whether season 10 will be the show's final season, but Lloyd hopes to continue the award-winning series.

Yes, death is coming to Modern Family.
