Photo Flash: MODERN FAMILY Cast Celebrates Iconic 200th Episode
The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan has been making viewers laugh for 200 episodes! The cast & executive producers of ABC's hit comedy series MODERN FAMILY were joined on set this week in Century City, California, by Channing Dungey (President, ABC Entertainment Group) as they honored the show's impressive milestone with a cake reminiscent of the series' opening credits.
"Modern Family" is currently airing its ninth season on ABC, and the 200th episode will air in early 2018.
The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is a wonderfully large and blended family with Jay Pritchett sitting at the head. By his side is his vivacious, younger second wife, Gloria, and together they are navigating life with their youngest son, Joe, and Gloria's son, Manny, who is heading off to college to explore the world on his own terms. Meanwhile, Jay's grown daughter, Claire, and her husband, Phil, are learning to navigate life as empty-nesters with the youngest, Luke, now out of high school and looking to his next move; middle daughter Alex is learning how to balance academia and a social life, and eldest Haley is still living at home as she pursues a career and love. Then there's Claire's brother and Jay's grown son, Mitchell, and his husband, Cameron, who are about to enter the dreaded middle-school years with their newly discovered, gifted daughter, Lily. These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they GIVE us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted, embrace of the modern family.
