'Modern Family's Mitchell and Cameron (ABC)

With the Supreme Court’s ruling to strike down DOMA, there may finally be wedding bells in the future for Cameron and Mitchell on “Modern Family.”

Christopher Lloyd, who co-created the ABC hit series, told Entertainment Weekly that today’s court ruling could impact the show’s fifth season and whether Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) finally exchange vows.

“It’s a real possibility,” Lloyd said to the publication. “It’s certainly something we are contemplating on the show in ways we wouldn’t have in prior seasons.

“We’ve had a number of conversations,” Lloyd continued. “As you can imagine in Cam and Mitchell’s life, they would be feeling that a door has opened that was closed to them. Wouldn’t it be pretty tempting to think about walking through it? We imagine a lot of gay couples today are deciding whether to get married now that it’s open to them. From our standpoint, that’s something to explore.”

Lloyd went on to state that there was giddiness in the “Modern Family” writers room today once the ruling was announced.

“It’s a funny thing, sitting around and celebrating for your characters on a day like this,” said Lloyd. “We were happy for Mitch and Cam today!”
