Even in the middle of this "modern farewell," Modern Family is still going strong. In the most recent episode—season 11, episode 10, "The Prescott"—Alex's (Ariel Winter) new company is putting her up at a new luxury apartment with full amenities and a list of high-profile residents that the family is eager to take advantage of, without her knowing. Phil (Ty Burrell) is on a mission to review the restaurant's famous sliders for his food blog, while Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) sneak in separately to meet its most famous resident, David Beckham.

Meanwhile, Luke (Nolan Gould) and Manny (Rico Rodriguez) head straight for the gym to try and pick up on older women and end up in some hot water with a few of the residents. The episode also features guest star Stephen Merchant as Higgins, the building's concierge, who must deal with all of the madness created by the family.
Phil's slider adventure
Critically lauded for revitalizing the television sitcom when it premiered in fall 2009, Modern Family also quickly cemented itself as a culturally defining series. The show featured characters who lived their lives on their own terms, broke down stereotypes and shared their biggest embarrassments, mishaps, tender and funny moments with the world. The recipient of a record five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, Modern Family tied the Emmy Award record previously set by Frasier. As the series counts down to the finale, this wonderfully large and blended family will continue to delight audiences with its honest and often hilarious look into the warm and sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
