Just to be clear, Modern Family is not getting a reboot.
Instead, according to The Hollywood Reporter, co-creator Steve Levitan is gearing up to begin production on a follow-up to the series: a meta comedy by the name of Reboot.
The series has already received a pilot order from Hulu, and is described as follows: “When Hulu reboots an early 2000s family sitcom, its dysfunctional cast is forced back together and now must deal with their unresolved issues in today’s fast-changing world.”
Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and Johnny Knoxville (Jackass) have also reportedly been cast in the series, although their roles are currently being kept under wraps.
Levitan co-wrote the pilot with John Enbom (Veronica Mars).
The series will be produced by 20th Television.
We’ll provide further details as they become available, especially if the show gets a full series order.
