Sofia Vergara shares new look at viral Modern Family reunion as fans express concern for Ty Burrell


Sofia Vergara hosted a reunion for the cast of Modern Family at her Los Angeles home, over three and a half years after the show first ended its run.

Modern Family was an ABC staple for its 11-year long run, from September 2009 to April 2020, winning critical acclaim and 22 Emmy Awards from its whopping 75 nominations.

The entirety of the mockumentary sitcom’s cast was present for the reunion organized by the 51-year-old Colombian star, but fans immediately noticed that a beloved favorite was missing.

The cast held up a photograph of Ty Burrell, who played lovable goofball dad and husband Phil Dunphy, while posing for pictures, indicating that he couldn’t make it. The photo of the character kept making the rounds in several of the images shared by Sofia.

It immediately concerned several of the star’s followers, who reacted with comments like: “Bruh I thought Phill died, I almost had a mini heart attack,” and: “Had to google and check that Phil was still alive….,” plus: “Typical Phil, making us think the worse. He should have been the robot ipad thing if he couldn’t make it,” as well as: “No but tell my why my favorite character is always missing.”

Thankfully, it seems like Ty, now 56, simply couldn’t make it for some or the other reason (possibly scheduling conflicts) as he’s alive and steadily working, much to the relief of fans.

We don’t see this strong bond in every cast on TV. You guys are so special!!”

The show was particularly credited for breaking ground with its depiction of same-sex couple Mitchell and Cameron and normalizing the idea of LGBTQ+ relationships on-screen, while also shining a light on themes like adoption and immigration.

The show won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series five consecutive times. Ty, Eric, and Julie each earned two Emmy wins for their performances, with the remaining adult cast members also receiving multiple consecutive nominations.
