At the start of “Modern Family’s” tenth season, the show’s executive producer hinted to the fact that a “significant” character would die. Ever since the news broke, fans of the show have been speculating who the victim might be.
Most fans agreed that it would likely be Jay and Gloria’s dog, Stella— but in a new interview with E!, Jesse Tyler Ferguson confirmed that it’s not an animal.
“It’s definitely a person, not the dog. I’ve been hearing rumors about the dog, it’s not the dog. It’s no animal, it’s a human being,” he said.
Ferguson went on to tease that it could even be his character, Mitchell Pritchett. “I’ll just say I haven’t been at work in a few weeks,” he said. “I’m just kidding. Or am I?”
