HIT comedy Modern Family will return to Sky1’s Friday night line-up at the end of March.

The 16-times Emmy winning ensemble will air at 8pm on Friday, March 29, and will be preceded by another hit US import, The Middle, at 7.30pm.

The return date will give UK viewers the chance to catch the second half of the show’s fourth season featuring Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Sofía Vergara, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and company.

The first episode will be called New Year’s Eve and will feature the family getting together to see in the New Year at a hotel in Palm Springs. It will feature a cameo from Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams.

The remainder of the fourth season will also see the introduction of Gloria’s (Vergara) family in the form of mum Pilar (Elizabeth Pena) and sister Sonia (Stephanie Beatriz).
