'Modern Family' Showrunners Talk Possibilities of Mitch & Cam Spinoff

'Modern Family' Showrunners Talk Possibilities of Mitch & Cam Spinoff

Modern Family signed off the air after 11 seasons on air just moments ago and while we dry our tears, the showrunners are opening up about the potential for spinoffs.

Speaking with Deadline, Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd revealed if there were any more stories for the Dunphys, Tuckers, Pritchets and Delgados to tell.

Steve revealed that the “at the moment, I’m personally not thinking about that.”

He adds, “I think that there are a couple of writers who are thinking about well, is there a Mitch and Cam spinoff, but they’re literally just thinking about it. They’re using this time that we have now to think about it, if there’s something there.”

“I’m not driving this but I’m a huge fan of Jesse [Tyler Ferguson] and Eric [Stonestreet], and those characters are of course near and dear to me, and I certainly think that they’re strong enough to carry a show,” Steve continued. “For me, I really felt that what I needed creatively was to work on something new after working on Modern Family for 12 years and pretty much exclusively.”

Christopher agrees, saying that “it does present a possibility for us. Will that happen? I’m not sure but we would be probably dumb to not explore it. However, doing a spinoff is fraught in a lot of ways and we won’t do it unless we feel confident there’s something there, I don’t want to say it’s a long shot, it’s under discussion but we’ll see. We don’t want to jump into something like that, particularly because Modern Family is a tough act to follow, but that is a possibility.”

What did you think of the Modern Family series finale?
