Well, here's a bit of news that you probably weren't expecting to read today: Modern Family will be killing off a major character in their upcoming 10th season.
The show's co-creator, Christopher Lloyd, revealed the death in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. And though he didn't reveal who it's going to be, he did confirm that it's a "significant character."
Lloyd also told EW that the death "will be a moving event — and an event that has repercussions across several episodes."
As for WHY the typically light-hearted comedy was throwing such a dark twist into the series, Lloyd explained:
[Death] 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.
