Modern Family’s Mitchell Pritchett actor lifts lid on ‘really emotional’ finale as cast plan lockdown viewing party – The Sun

He said: "I think it's going to be really emotional to watch it on television next week.
"Now that I don't have anywhere to go, I've been able to sit down and watch the show in real time, which I haven't been able to do before.

"So I think it'll be interesting to watch it while all of our fans are watching it for the first time."

The star added that he would have been gutted if he wasn't able to get the 'closure' that everyone involved in the show deserved.

He said: "I’m so grateful that we were able to finish Modern Family the way we wanted to before all of this happened. My heart hurts for shows that aren’t able to do that."

All cast and crew members were lucky enough to celebrate their amazing time on the programme with a wrap party before the pandemic hit.

Jesse added: "I would’ve been devastated if we wouldn’t have been able to finish Modern Family and it just ended sort of ambiguously.

"We had a really nice last few weeks together as a cast and we had a really wonderful wrap party, and I’m just really grateful that we got to have that closure."

Last week ABC announced that a one-hour documentary will air before the two-part, one-hour series finale.

The documentary, A Modern Farewell, will look back at all episodes of the beloved comedy, including those dating back to when it first aired in 2009.

Fans of the show can expect a range of interviews with their favourite cast and crew members.

The special will even give a sneak peek at the table read of the script for the final episode – which is due to air straight after the documentary.

Filming the final scene of the show was extremely emotional for all involved, including co-creator Christopher Lloyd, who told EW: "It's kind of like when you're a kid and your best friend moves away — only it's 100 best friends."

A series of touching photos were also released earlier this month to give fans a glimpse of what to expect next week.

One of the sweetest features Phil Dunphy (played by actor Ty Burrell) hugging wife Claire (Julie Bowen).

Burrell, who won two Emmys as the dippy dad-of-three, said of their last day on set: “It was like a beautiful torture. It was like being at a wedding and a funeral at the same time.”

In February the cast broke down in tears on their last day of filming as the sitcom wrapped.

Vergara could be seen crying as she cuddled into her co-stars as the cast sang along to Green Day's Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).

The 47-year-old actress captioned the clip: "What a day! Saying goodbye to our Modern Family" with three love heart emojis.

The one-hour farewell will air on Wednesday April 8 at 9 pm on ABC.
