The Middle wont live to Season 10, but will the cancelled ABC sitcom get a proper ending?
According to co-creator DeAnn Heline, the show’s ending has been known for years, and the ninth and final season will conclude on the ‘right’ note’, per EW:
“There will be no Game of Thrones horrible deaths,” the co-creator promises of the finale, adding that they’ve known for years how things will conclude. “I think it will be super funny, satisfying, and the right ending for the show.”
Meaning, don’t look for the underrated series (drink!) to deviate from its winning formula just because the long-running comedy is wrapping up. “It’s the Hecks, so very exciting story lines, like their doorknob doesn’t work, so we have to fix it,” teases Heline. Other than home maintenance, the final season includes a more cultured Axl returning from Europe with a new taste for fancy coffee, scarves, and man buns (McDermott even grew out his hair to ensure full man bun authenticity).
The ninth and final season of The Middle premieres Oct. 3, 2017 on ABC.
What are you hopes for the ninth and final season of The Middle? Hoping for a future Season 10 revival? Glad the show is cancelled?
