Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson dropped by Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen Monday night, where he opened up about the potential for a spin-off series. The series ended with his character, Mitch, and Eric Stonestreet’s Cam moving to Missouri. Despite rumors of a spin-off floating around, Ferguson had previously been tight-lipped about the possibility.
“There were discussions,” Ferguson revealed. “I think the [ABC] network decided against it.”
Ferguson appeared somewhat shocked that he admitted to speaking with the network, saying, “That's the first time I ever said that!”
Even though the series won 22 Emmys during its run, Ferguson believes the network is looking for a more modern Modern Family.
“I just wonder if this is the right family to tell this story,” Ferguson explained. “I think … we’ve been on for 11 years and they’re ready to move in a different direction.”
