It's not goodbye, it's see you later.
After 11 years, the Modern Familycast and crew bid farewell to the beloved ABC sitcom. A production source exclusively tells ET that "there was not a dry eye on set" for the final day of filming on Friday.
"Having been together for 11 years, everyone was so emotional," the source says. "There were definitely tears on-and-off all day, but especially when we got down to the last scene."
ET’s source says that many of the cast’s family members were also a part of the final celebration. Sofia Vergara's husband, Joe Manganiello, Jesse Tyler Ferguson's husband, Justin Mikita, and Sarah Hyland's fiancé, Wells Adams, were on the set to show their support.
According to the source, in between takes, Mangianello would chat with Vergara, but for the most part, he was hanging out on the side taking photos. Mikita, the source says, was behind the monitor watching. "Justin is like part of the family. He's really close with everyone."
The source shares that Ariel Winter's new boyfriend, Luke Benward, was not at Friday’s final taping, but he was spotted visiting her on set earlier this month.
As each actor was individually wrapped for the final time by the assistant director, they were all overcome with emotion. "It broke my heart seeing Jeremy [Maguire] crying. The kids grew up on the show! Aubrey [Anderson-Emmons] was a baby when she started," the source says.
