This year, the Emmy-winning comedy series, Modern Family will wrap up with the finale season, and fans will have to say goodbye to the Dunphy-Pritchet-Tucker family. But here comes Star World, all set to mark the end of a comedy era by hosting re-runs of the all 11 seasons of Modern Family for the first time on Indian Television. The series which has been considered as one of the most seminal and iconic comedies of present times, will start airing on Star World starting 16th March every Monday to Friday at 8PM!
The show stars some of the glamorous personalities who went on to become household names like Sofia Vergara and Sarah Hyland. Also starring Julie Bowen, Ty Burell, Jesse Tyrel Ferguson, Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez, the family sitcom revolves around an extended family who deal with their kids, quirky spouses, and jobs in their own unique ways, often falling into hilarious situations. A 21st century comedy, telling the story of a giant family that includes a gay couple, an interracial couple, divorce, adoption – basically everything, finally comes to an end but in its beautiful entirety will surely continue to live on.
Created by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan, this mockumentary style comedy, since its launch, has received immense acclaim over the years and remained popular and relevant to its audiences. The show, known to be all-inclusive and unconventional, went for a change of pace from the typical sitcom fare with its twists – voice given to LGBTQ characters and adaptation of the documentary style of filmmaking. With comparisons to The Office and Parks and Recreation, Modern Family matured to joining the squad of some legendary comedy TV shows of all time – Seinfeld, The Simpsons, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, to name a few. Bringing back plenty of fond reminiscing, this groundbreaking sitcom, over its 11-season run earned 75 Emmy nominations and 22 Emmy Awards, and a TV record with its five straight best comedy Emmys.
The show’s 11th and final season is currently airing on Star World, new episodes every Saturday at 7PM. And if you are one to take the trip down memory lane, then go and tune in to Star World and watch Modern Family (all seasons) airing every Monday – Friday at 8PM, starting 16th March.
A FAMILY THAT SINGS, FALLS, LAUGHS, CRIES, PLAYS TOGETHER…. WILL ALWAYS STICK TOGETHER
