What’s This TV Show About?
A family sitcom airing on the ABC television network, The Middle stars Patricia Heaton, Mike Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher, and Atticus Shaffer. The comedy centers on the Heck family. Frankie (Heaton) and Mike (Flynn) are middle-aged, middle-class parents. They live in the middle of the country with their three children, easy going Axl (McDermott), a recent college graduate; enthusiastic middle child Sue (Sher), a college junior; and bright, quirky Brick (Shaffer), who is now a high school sophomore.
The ninth and final season of The Middle kicks off as Axl returns home from his post-grad trip to Europe. His even more laid-back attitude drives Mike crazy. Axl has also gotten serious enough with Sue’s roommate, Lexie (Daniela Bobadilla), that it’s time for Mike and Frankie to meet her wealthy family. Speaking of Sue, she is still pining for Sean Donahue (Beau Wirick), who thanks to their penchant for crossing wires, has no idea she returns his feelings. Meanwhile, in an attempt to boost his popularity, Brick decides to dump Cindy (Casey Burke), which goes about as well as any Heck should expect.
