Description

A recipient of the 2010 Emmy® Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, Modern Family returns to ABC for its third season!

Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill) sits at the head of a large and unconventional family. Now in his second marriage to his gorgeous young wife, Gloria (Sofia Vergara), Jay has been given something of a second chance. Still, old habits are hard to break, and it’s trial by fire as he tries to adapt to life with the same passion and vigor that Gloria exhibits, which are matched by her precocious 12-year-old son, Manny (Rico Rodriguez). There are some culture clashes, a few misunderstandings, but also plenty of sweet victories along the way. Jay’s grown daughter, Claire (Julie Bowen), and her husband, Phil (Ty Burrell), are the proud parents of three kids with whom they want that open, healthy, honest relationship. It’s not always easy, especially when you have Haley (Sarah Hyland), a teenage daughter who’s growing up a little fast, Alex (Ariel Winter), a too-smart-for-her-own-good middle daughter and Luke (Nolan Gould), a scatterbrained boy. Add to this that Phil is just a big kid himself, even if he does always have the best intentions. Claire is the anchor, trying her best to run a tight ship and determined not to let her kids have the rebellious childhood she had. Claire’s brother and Jay’s grown son, Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), is busy raising an adopted daughter, Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons), with his long term partner, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet). Opposites attract in this household, with Cameron having a wonderfully big personality and maybe a flare for the dramatic, while Mitchell is more buttoned-down. They balance each other out, and these doting fathers are relishing their roles as parents developing their own little family.

These three unique families give us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted, embrace of the modern family.
