Launching in 2009, Modern Family was an instant hit for ABC and has won 21 Primetime Emmy awards.

Like most long-running series, it has lost steam and buzz as the years have gone by. 

Modern Family Season 10 is currently averaging a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49.

Modern Family joins The Good Doctor and A Million Little Things which were also renewed during TCA. 

There's still no word yet on an exact episode count, but a truncated run might be the best way to end the series. 

Modern Family has lacked in the comedy department of late, so it would be great for it to go out with a more focused season.
