If you're a fan of the TV sitcom Modern Family, you'll be sad to hear the show plans to kill off one of the major characters!

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly one of the co-creators of the show, Christopher Lloyd, confirmed the news.

"We’re handling some bigger life events in this season," he said.

"We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it’s not easy to do because that’s a heavy subject. But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it."

He went on to add the death would be of a significant character. "It will be a moving event — and an event that has repercussions across several episodes."

As to what else we can expect from the upcoming season, he said "there is a significant change in the dynamics of the family that people maybe thought was going to happen at some point down the line that is happening sooner than expected."

Modern Family returns to screens in the US later this month.
