The Hecks aren't going anywhere

The Hecks aren't going anywhere.

On Wednesday, ABC announced that they have issued an early season 9 renewal to The Middle.

"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 Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment. "The Indiana Hecks have found America's sweet spot with their authentic, acerbic, and always loving take on parenting, work, kids, marriage, and life."

The long-running sitcom stars Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn as the heads of a middle-class Indiana family, with Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher, and Atticus Shaffer starring as their children.
