The ninth and final season of ABC’s comedy series The Middle will receive its UK premiere on Comedy Central UK on Tuesday October 17th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Eileen Heisler & DeAnn Heline, The Middle follows the daily life of Frances Heck, her husband Mike and their three children, Sue, Axl and Brick, who live in Orson, Indiana. The comedy series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and stars Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher and Atticus Shaffer.
In the opening episode of the show’s final season, titled Vive La Hecks, Axl returns home from his summer trip to Europe, sporting a man-bun and embracing a new, chill European outlook on life. Mike just wants him to clean up and look for a job, but Frankie thinks Axl will do this on his own and asks Mike to give him a little breathing room. Meanwhile, because Sue worked the entire summer at Spudsy’s and missed out on having any fun, she decides to cram in a whole summer of fun in two days before going back to college; Brick makes the decision to break up with Cindy because he doesn’t want to be tied down in a relationship when he’s about to embark on the revelry of his “big sophomore year”; and Frankie desperately tries to come up with an item for a time capsule that’s being buried under the Orson cow that will make the town remember the Hecks when it’s opened in 100 years.
