Modern Family first graced our screens back in 2009 as it became an instant hit with fans.

The hit comedy show ran for 11 series up until it came to an end in 2020.

It follows three families' ups and downs, all connected by Jay Pritchett, and the characters in the show often speak directly to the camera which creates a mockumentary style.

The episodes are based on usual events that normal families experience but they often end up in hilarious situations.

It won a total of 22 Emmy awards from 75 nominations along with the finale of the show getting 7.37 million viewers in the first run.

But where are the cast now twelve years after it began?
