Things are heating up this season on Modern Family.

The Pritchett and Dunphy clans unite in a playful new cast shot for the upcoming season of the ABC comedy—but let’s be honest, the real star is the cute dog, Stella.

When Modern Family returns, Mitch and Cam will learn the hard way that the honeymoon phase can’t last forever as Mitch acclimates to their return much more quickly than his new husband. Over at the Dunphy house, their blissful summer will take a turn when Alex returns from a humanitarian trip and there’s an extreme shift in their moods.

Modern Family premieres Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
