Modern Family

ABC

Modern Family is returning for its eighth season on Sept. 21, but it's Father's Day in the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker world.

E! News has an exclusive sneak peek at the new key art for Modern Family season eight, along with a few tidbits about the upcoming adventures of your favorite families.

The season premiere will begin with the family converging for a Father's Day celebration after vacations to New York, the Midwest and Mexico. Over the next couple of weeks, Claire (Julie Bowen) will struggle with Jay (Ed O'Neill) back at the company while Phil (Ty Burrell) enjoys more of his often-bizarre hobbies, and Gloria's (Sofia Vergara) hot sauce business starts to see some success.

Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) will entertain a revolving door of interesting guests in their upstairs rental unit, and Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) will experience the growing pains that come along with being a tween.

Haley (Sarah Hyland) will begin an entrepreneurial career path while Alex (Ariel Winter) will battle mono and learn to keep her life balanced at Caltech. Manny (Rico Rodriguez) and Luke (Nolan Gould) will tackle their senior year of high school (and college visits) together.

The eighth season will also see Halloween and New Year's Eve episodes, along with guest stars Martin Short and Nathan Fillion.

Modern Family premieres Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. on ABC, along with the season four premiere of The Goldbergs at 8 p.m., the series premiere of new comedy Shameless at 8:30, the season three premiere of Black-ish at 9:30 p.m., and the series premiere of the new drama Designated Survivor at 10 p.m.
