When Modern Family returns for its new season this fall, gay couple Cam and Mitch will finally get their long awaited on screen kiss.
Thanks to a Facebook campaign, and lots of criticism, executive producer Steve Levitan confirmed that Cam and Mitch will lock lips on the show’s eagerly anticipated sophomore season.
“We’ve had an episode planned for a long time that dealt with that subject of (their being affectionate),” Levitan told E!.
“So it almost bothers us that there was a little bit of controversy about it. Because we don’t want to appear that we’re answering that criticism. But sure enough, we’re dealing with public displays of affection, and the power of a kiss. Seems simple, but intriguing – I hope.”
"I think it's great that people care so much," Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cam says. "I always am confused why they don't worry about shows that don't have any gay characters on them. They should put some focus on them as well, but we'll give the audience exactly what they need."
Tune into Modern Family this fall for the juicy kiss!
