ABC's acclaimed hit comedy, Modern Family, returns for its fifth season with a special one-hour event, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In the first half of the hour -- "Suddenly, Last Summer" -- the family is in the throes of summer activities: Phil and Claire are trying to orchestrate a kid-free week by coordinating Luke's camp with Haley's beach trip and Alex's volunteering excursion; Jay and Gloria are getting Manny ready for his first solo trip back to Colombia; and Mitch and Cam make it a summer to remember.
In the 1-Hour Season Premiere, so much will change with just one word: "Yes." But what's the question?
In the second half-hour - "First Days" -- Luke and Manny have their first day at high school, which proves to be harder for Phil and Gloria than for the boys. Elsewhere, Claire makes her big return to the workforce at Jay's closet company and is a little rusty on her first day, and Cam starts a new substituting gig at the high school, leaving Mitch to try to juggle Lily's first day in 1st grade and a very important meeting at work.
Phil (Ty Burrell) drops off Luke (Nolan Gould) at his first day of high school, while Alex (Ariel Winter) has already started studying before class has even started.
Cameron takes a job as a substitute teacher at the high school, but American history isn't his strong suit.
Why does Cam dress up as George Washington to teach Alex's A.P. History class? Find out during the 1-HOUR SEASON PREMIERE of Modern Family on WEDNESDAY, SEPT 25 9|8c.
