Details of the new deal were not disclosed, but Lloyd and the studio hit a speedbump last month as they sought to hammer out a new deal. When the “Modern Family” writing staff convened on May 27 to begin work on the show’s sixth season, one chair was conspicuously empty.
It’s understood Lloyd was seeking a shorter term than the four-year deals he has inked with the studio in the past. It’s not clear how the issue was resolved.
Lloyd went back to the studio lot on Thursday and resumed his role as co-showrunner, dividing up oversight of this season’s episodes with co-creator and co-showrunner Steven Levitan.
In a statement, 20th TV chairman-ceo Gary Newman welcomed him back. »
