Last week, ABC gave us a refresher course on Modern Family, airing last May’s season finale in which we discovered that Gloria (Sofia Vergara) was expecting a baby. On Wednesday’s season premiere, we find the family attempting to plan a birthday party for Jay (Ed O’Neill), despite his adamant declaration that he wants no surprises. n the meantime, Gloria is trying to figure out a way to hit Jay with the biggest surprise of all and tell him that she is pregnant.
Not helping matters, is Phil (Ty Burrell) who tries to bond by taking Jay on a fishing trip that turns out in a way that only one of Phil’s plans could. Also adding to the Dunphy chaos, is the addition of Dylan to their household when he moves in at the start of season 4.
At the end of last season, Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) were very close to adopting a second baby, but with the new season, it seems they’ve set their sights on a different kind of adoption: a pet cat.
Check out the clips below for a sneak peek of Wednesday’s Modern Family season 4 premiere.
Modern Family airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
