From the beginning of the first season of "Modern Family" in 2009 to the end of the eleventh season in 2019, a family drama with enough "American style" in content and form has accompanied us for ten years.

Among the many classic American dramas, "Modern Family" is one of the few that has maintained a high level from the first season to the last season, and there is no unfinished end at all, which is really amazing how it did it!
