Modern Family is entering its 10th season later this month and a “significant character on the series” will die with the death becoming “a moving event and an event that has repercussions across several episodes.”

“We’re handling some bigger life events in this season,” co-creator Christopher Lloyd told Entertainment Weekly. “We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it’s not easy to do because that’s a heavy subject. But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it.”
