“Modern Family” has been renewed for at least two more seasons after racking up five consecutive Emmy awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, and ABC says “the door is open for additional seasons beyond that.”

The ABC hit show will be back for seasons 9 and 10, bringing binge watchers a total of 232 episodes, noted CNN.

The final episode of Season 8 is set to air on Wednesday, May 17, at 8:30 p.m. and Season 9 will make its debut in September.

“We are beyond thrilled that we get to spend more time with these characters, these amazing actors, our ridiculously-talented writers and our incredible crew – all of whom are like family to us,” said Steve Levitan, the executive producer of the show. “And the good kind of family, not the kind that argues with you all the time.”

“’Modern Family’ remains one of the studio’s most prized assets and we are enormously grateful to ABC for this two year pickup. Steve and Cris are genius producers who created nothing less than a television classic, and they would be the first to tell you that their cast and crew are the best there is,” said David and Howard Kurtzman, presidents of 20th Century Fox Television, per International Business Times.

All this comes after the future of the show was hanging in the balance for months, as ABC was contemplating whether or not to keep it on the air.
