The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is a wonderfully large and blended family with Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neil) sitting at the head. By his side is his vivacious, younger second wife, Gloria (Sofia Vergara), and together they are navigating life with their youngest son, Joe, and Gloria's son, Manny (Rico Rodriguez), who is heading off to college to explore the world on his own terms.
Meanwhile, Jay's grown daughter, Claire (Julie Bowen), and her husband, Phil (Ty Burrell), are learning to navigate life as empty-nesters with the youngest, Luke (Nolan Gould), now out of high school and looking to his next move; middle daughter Alex (Ariel Winter) is learning how to balance academia and a social life, and eldest Haley (Sarah Hyland) is still living at home as she pursues a career and love.
Then there's Claire's brother and Jay's grown son, Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), and his husband, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), who are about to enter the dreaded middle-school years with their newly-discovered-gifted daughter, Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons). These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they give us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted, embrace of the modern family.
The new season began airing last Wednesday on the ABC network, and now Amazon.com has ALREADY begun accepting pre-orders for Modern Family - The Complete 9th Season
. This listing is prior to the official Fox Home Entertainment announcement for the item, though, so instead of a street date Amazon merely says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
Pricing is available, however, at $29.95 SRP. There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entry, but there is early box art (seen below; this may not be finalized yet, and could be subject to change). Stay tuned, of course, and we'll update you further on this title just as soon as we find out more! Our thanks to one of our longtime readers, "Kevin," for pointing this out to us.
