Scoop: 'Modern Family' heads to Hawaii!

Posted on

It’s the biggest thing to happen to the Aloha State since Vincent Price terrorized the Brady boys back in 1972: Modern Family is heading to Hawaii!

Executive producer Steve Levitan confirms that the entire cast will fly to Maui next week to shoot an episode slated to air in May.

“We’re going to show them on a family vacation,” reveals Levitan, adding that the trip coincides with Jay’s birthday. “Jay thinks that he and Gloria are going by themselves for this romantic getaway, and she surprises him by inviting the entire family.”

Wait, it gets better!

The first part of the two-part episode will be set entirely at the airport as they set off on their big trip. “Initially, we were just going to do [the airport episode],” explains Levitan. “And then as we were shooting it we decided that [viewers] would be somewhat disappointed if we didn’t follow through on the [actual] trip. So now the entire family is going to Hawaii.”

Take me with you! Please?
