Vergara, who plays Gloria Pritchett on the show, shared a slideshow of photos featuring the cast and crew.
“Our last table read,” she captioned the post. “Sad because its ending but so grateful and happy to have been able to be part of this family. It has being More than I ever dreamed of or deserved. Gracias my Modern Family #11years.”

“Modern Family” will conclude in April after an 11-season run on ABC. Bowen said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” this month that she plans to avoid the cast’s “crying fest” following the series finale.
“I’ve definitely done the walking around and saying to people, ‘I love you. Working together has been amazing,'” the actress said. “But come that last day, I’m out of here. I’m gonna be gone. I’m not hanging out for the crying fest.”
“I can’t do it,” she explained. “I am not that kind of human … I need to cry alone. Do you want to cry with a whole bunch of people?”
“Modern Family” also stars Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ariel Winter and Nolan Gould. Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett, said in an interview with “The Late Late Show” in January that it’s an incredibly sad” experience for the show to be ending.
