PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - ABC says the series finale of its comedy ‘Modern Family’ will air on April 8.


The show was an immediate critical and commercial hit for the network upon its debut in 2009. It shares with ‘Frasier’ the record of five consecutive Emmy Awards for the best comedy on television.

ABC says it will air the series' very first episode on March 11, along with five favorite episodes to be selected by fans.

The show has managed to remain intact with its ensemble cast, including Sofia Vergara and Ed O'Neill, and co-creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd. Levitan says there are no spin-offs in the works.
