‘The Middle’ Spin-Off in the Works at ABC

Potential Series Would Be Set a Few Years Into the Future

One week after the series-finale of nine-year old sitcom “The Middle” comes word that a potential spin-off with Eder Sher as perennially optimistic daughter Sue Heck is in development. The project, which could be for midseason consideration, comes from “The Middle” creators/executive producers Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline and studio Warner Bros. TV.

Set a few years into the future, the untitled series would follow Sue’s life after college and as a young adult. If this does move forward, it would be the third ABC sitcom at present to spawn a spin-off following Freeform’s “Grow-ish” from “black-ish” and ABC’s upcoming “Schooled” from “The Goldbergs.”
