"Modern Family" renewed: ABC orders Season 5. | ABC

"Modern Family" has been renewed for a fifth season because ABC (and audiences) just can't get enough of the Dunphys.

Starring Ty Burrell, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and more, "Modern Family" centers on a hilariously unconventional family wading their way through the trials and tribulations of life.

"Modern Family's" renewal was in the bag. The comedy has seen strong ratings since it's 2009 premiere, and has only increased in viewership over the years. Season 4 is currently averaging 13 million viewers.

In addition to "Modern Family," the network renewed "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy," "Last Man Standing," "The Middle," "Nashville," "Once Upon A Time," "Revenge," "Scandal" and "Suburgatory." ABC canceled an additional five series from the 2012-2013 season: "Body Of Proof," "Happy Endings," "How To Live With Your Parents," "Malibu Country" and "Red Widow," which join the previously canceled "666 Park Avenue," "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23," "Last Resort," "Private Practice" and "Zero Hour."ABC has not confirmed the reported fates of "Family Tools" and "The Neighbors."

ABC also picked up a number of comedies for the 2013-2014 season: "Super Fun Night" starring Rebel Wilson; ensemble "Mixology"; Malin Akerman's "Trophy Wife"; family comedy "The Goldbergs" and "Back in the Game" starring James Caan. On the drama side, in addition to "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," ABC picked up spinoff "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland"; drama "The Returned"; David Zabel's "Lucky 7" and "Betrayal"; the Christian Slater/Steve Zahn vehicle "Mind Games" and Sofia Vergara-produced "Killer Women."
