How to watch ‘Modern Family’ season 11

After a decade of charming television audiences, the Pritchett/Dunphy/Marshall family is finally waving farewell. The 11th season of Modern Family will also be the show’s last. Yes, it was a little touch and go there, and at the start of the last season it looked like season 10 would be the last. Nope! There’s still a little more to tell, and there’s also a number of loose ends to tie up. In true Modern Family fashion, season 10 closes by bringing the entire family together over a special something, Season 10’s special something just so happened to be  Haley expanding the family further, by giving birth to a beautiful baby girl and boy (who are yet to be named). 

What will bring the family together in season 11? How will Haley adapt to motherhood of not one, but two babies? Who will make it out alive? Probably everyone, this isn’t Game of Thrones after all. And while the stakes are a little lower, the waterworks will be astronomic when Modern Family ends early next year. 

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Modern Family season 11 online.
