When “Modern Family” returns to ABC for Season 5 this fall, there will be a new manny in the mix.
No, Rico Rodriguez hasn’t been replaced as hopeless romantic Manny Delgado. This new manny is a male nanny, and, according to Vulture, he’ll be brought to life by “Workaholics” co-creator Adam DeVine.
“Modern Family” co-creator Christopher Lloyd tells the website that Jay (Ed O’Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) will hire DeVine’s character to help out with little Joe, the baby boy the couple welcomed to the world during Season 4. The role will recur, with DeVine set to make a handful of appearances.
Season 5 of “Modern Family” premieres with a special one-hour episode on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
