Shelley Long To Reprise Her Role On <i>Modern Family</i>

Shelley Long will reprise her role on Modern Family as Jay Pritchett’s ex-wife in upcoming season, according to TV Guide.

Long, who played DeDe Pritchett (Claire and Mitchell’s mother), has agreed to reprise her role. Not many details on Long’s guest appearance have been released.

Steve Levitan didn’t give to much detail to TV Guide in a recent interview. All he said was that they had a funny storyline for Long’s character and that there would be a lot of tension between Long’s character and Ed O’Neill’s character, Jay.

Modern Family upcoming season starts Sept. 26 on ABC.
