ABC Renews ‘The Middle’ for Season Nine

All Five Actors Will Return in 2017-18

Perennially underrated ABC sitcom “The Middle,” starring Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher and Atticus Shaffer, has been greenlit by the network for a ninth season. “‘The Middle’ has been one of the network’s most consistent performers and helped us to launch a whole new night of comedy when it moved to Tuesdays this season,” said ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey. “The Indiana Hecks have found America’s sweet spot with their authentic, acerbic and always loving take on parenting, work, kids, marriage and life.”

Moving into the Tuesday 8 p.m. anchor spot this season, “The Middle” is the top-rated show on the evening and provides respectable lead-in support to freshman comedy “American Housewife.”
