A synopsis reveals how the action is "set primarily in Timeless Acres Retirement Home and follows feisty chess master Helen 'Nana' Lewis (Ruehl) and her estranged grandsons, Andrew (Gould) and Cody (Peltz).

"With the support of Nana's resident friends, the family embarks on a roadtrip to support her rise to state championships."

We can smell the sentimental shenanigans already.

Turning back toward the world of Modern Family, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett actress Sofia Vergara previously addressed the end of the beloved sitcom.

"Why can't it be Law & Order? It was the dream job and if I could do it all again I would and I wouldn't change anything. Everything was perfect – the scripts, the cast, the writers... We became a family so it's hard to say goodbye," she shared following the 2020 finale.

On the end of production, she said: "It was bad. We were so upset – all of us. We are really going to miss each other. It's not about the work, it's the people. I'm never going to see them every day like I did.

"You lose contact in this business. I'm going to miss them. I already miss them!"

Expect The Nana Project to hit the big screen this time next year.
