Could Modern Family be on the verge of an expansion? Quite possibly.
EW has confirmed that preliminary talks have begun for a possible Modern Family spin-off. Deadline first reported on the conversations.
One option currently on the table would see the new project centered on guest star Rob Riggle’s character, Gil Thorpe, who is Phil’s (Ty Burrell) nemesis.
The news comes just one week after Modern Family took home its fourth win for Outstanding Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards, and just days after its season 5 premiere garnered 11.4 million viewers.
