ABC Renews ‘Modern Family’ for Seasons 9 and 10

modern-familyModern Family is sticking around for at least two more 22-episode seasons. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has handed out a double-season renewal to Modern Family, which will keep it on the air through at least seasons 9 and 10. In addition to the renewal, the show’s 10 main stars have all signed new contracts that include raises (they each made about $350,000 per episode, “as well as a portion of the show’s profits,” in season 8). It’s unknown whether or not the show will continue after the new seasons air, but co-creator Steve Levitan told THR that his plans were to end after season 10: “I’d like it to go 10 seasons. It seems like a nice, round number. But most importantly, I’d like to end strong. If that means ending it after nine, that’s OK. If it means ending it after 10, even better.”
