It's time to bid farewell to one of TV's most beloved families: The Dunphys.

ABC is confirming their goodbye to Phil, Claire, Jay, Gloria, Alex, Haley, Luke, Mitchell, Cameron and Manny forever, and we're devastated.

Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement at the 2019 Television Critics Association press tour that season 11 will be Modern Family's last hurrah.

"Co-creators Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history", Burke announced.

"In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won't want to miss." The show has always been a strong ratings player for the network, but have decreased slowly over the years.

Modern Family contracts were apparently only up until season 10, which lead many to believe that the show would finish after that outing.

Deadline has reported that all cast members would be happy to continue with the show, as were Modern Family's producers and ABC.

However, co-creator Christopher Lloyd recently told E! News that working on season 10 and changing things up by including a death and surprise pregnancy inspired the writers to keep going.

"The way this season was developed, there's a little bit more in the way of kind of real-life events than what you've seen in the past," Lloyd said, following Haley's pregnancy announcement.

"But you know, in life, that happens where nothing at all particularly tumultuous happens, and then four things happen in the span of a couple of months."

A deal for another season of Modern Family was made easier due to the impending Disney acquisition of the series' studio, 20th Century Fox TV. Maybe spin-offs will be in the works?


Most of us remember the days of Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf, strutting across our screens. We were OBSESSED with Gossip Girl, it took over our lives.

From the romance between Blair and Chuck Bass, to the big reveal of who the secret character behind the mayhem was; it had us hooked.

Now, a reboot of The CW series may be coming to our screens, an executive producer has revealed. Stop the world, we're getting off. This is major goss…

Yup, that's right. We're going right back to the Upper East Side, and discussions have reportedly taken place about bringing the original drama back.

The series starred Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley, and aired from 2007 until 2012. Let's not forget that none other than Kristen Bell narrated it too.

The show followed the glamorous (not to mention absurd) lives of a group of upper-class teenagers living in the prestigious areas of Manhattan.

The trends it inspired are still around today, it had an unprecedented amount of influence on the youth who tuned in to watch it.

Gossip Girl was a massive hit for the American TV network The CW, and president Mark Pedowitz has confirmed it could get a reboot.

According to Deadline, he said: “There’s been discussions. But I don’t know if we’re there yet.”

Pedowitz also added that the return would depend on Warner Bros., who own The CW, and showrunners Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz.

We've seen all 121 episodes about a million times, but my GOD we want more.

Whether you've always wanted to pursue your dream career or just want to add an educational edge to your repertoire of skills – going to college is never a bad idea. 

Fancy spicing up your life with some further education? 

Then you better act fast. 

Tomorrow is the closing date for CAO applications, so if you're planning on throwing your hat into the ring, now would be the time. 

This date is the cut off point for entry to all first-year undergraduate courses. 

If you list your chosen courses and then change your mind, don't despair. 

If you need more time to mull the decision over, applicants can modify their course selection up until July 1, though for some programmes that is not allowed.

Dr Derek O'Byrne from Waterford Institute of Technology shared some sage advice with BreakingNews.ie for all those applying with the CAO.

'It’s a difficult process, there are a lot of choices available to people,' he noted.

'What’s really important though is that they pick programmes that very much suit their skill-sets and their interests.'

'If people pick a programme that they’re interested in, and that they enjoy, they’re much more likely to do well in that programme,' he said.
