The cast of Modern Family has lasted nearly ten seasons but that good run is coming to an end as the co-creator has announced that a "significant character" will die in the current season.

Viewers can still expect hilarious antics from the star-studded cast, but the first half of the season will draw a few tears.

As for what else the family will be facing in Season 10, Lloyd offered, "There is a significant change in the dynamics of the family that people maybe thought was going to happen at some point down the line that is happening sooner than expected".

Lloyd tells EW that the unidentified character's passing "will be a moving event ... that has repercussions across several episodes".

"It's not easy to do [on TV] because that's a heavy subject", Lloyd explained.

The character who dies might not necessarily be on of the core Dunphy family members.

'I hope there is.

Who will we lose this season?

Ariel Winter, Sarah Hyland, Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons and Jeremy Maquire also have starring roles on the sitcom.

Seeing as how Ed O'Neill's family patriarch, Jay Pritchett, is the eldest among the series' many characters, it wouldn't be too surprising if Lloyd and the writers were aiming to kill him off. So our standpoint was, 'Well, if we can do another season, we may as well.
