Executive Producer Steve Levitan addresses the future of the long-running sitcom.

Bowen told DeGeneres, "They're my family! There's going to be a lot of tears. There's going to be a lot, 'It's our first last table read of the season.' And it will go on for 22 episodes like that."

Modern Family has won 22 Primetime Emmy Awards, with Bowen taking home the gold statue twice for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2011 and 2012.
