Alas, the end is nigh for those of us who have watched through 10 and a half seasons of "Modern Family" over the last decade, as the series is sadly coming to an end.

Modern Family premiered in 2009, six years before the Supreme Court ruled that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry.

"The intention of that picture was extra to make folks think about that the household will reunite", he defined to Leisure Weekly (EW). Something great when you move is having a base home, the one you can always go back to, knowing that the light will always be on, wherever you are in the world.

"To even just know that that light is on can do wonders for you wherever you are in the world".

The following contains spoilers about the "Modern Family" series finale.

It is closer to saying that these characters will live in the memory of the audience and not to saying: "we will definitely see this family forming again". However, doing a spin-off is fraught in a lot of ways and we won't do it unless we feel confident there's something there, I don't want to say it's a long shot, it's under discussion but we'll see. Does that mean we won't do it? It is possible, but if it does not happen, it seems that this is an uplifting image for the end.

Suggesting that the Modern Family door is at the very least ajar, Lloyd also revealed that there have been some "very preliminary conversations about spinning off some characters" behind the scenes. "The goal, deliver a solid, amusing episode that feels real and gives you that emotional sendoff I think everybody craves".

"That could be a year from now, we catch up with one or two or three people and then other characters from the show perhaps drop in", he mused, before adding yet another caveat: "It could be something like that. It's a thing we knock round".

One of the highest-rated programs of all time, "Cosby" aired its finale amid the outbreak of the Los Angeles riots in the wake of acquittal of police officers charged with the beating of motorist Rodney King.
