The Middle cast members have shot a video about their comedy that was a “love letter to the Midwest.”

Ahead of their much-anticipated finale, the actors who played the Hecks — Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher, and Atticus Shaffer — reflect on a few memorable episodes (McDermott’s recollection will make you cringe) and why it hurts to say goodbye.

“Even though you know it’s the right time to go, everyone knows it’s not going to be the same again,” says Heaton.

The one-hour series finale of The Middle airs May 22 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
