Forget about athletes, movie stars and politicians. Parents are the real heroes -- but Frankie Heck, well she's some kind of superhero. A loving wife and mother of three, she's middle class in the middle of the country and is rapidly approaching middle age.

'The Middle' Renewed For Season 9

ABC announced today that The Middle has been given an early renewal for a ninth season. The veteran comedy has continued its consistent performance for the network and remains one of its strongest half-hour entries.
This season saw the show make a move to Tuesdays from its regular Wednesday night slot, where it originally helped establish a well-performing mid-week comedy block. The new night has had no ill-effects on the show's numbers, and it has actually seen a bump up in total viewership compared to this time last year. In fact, no ABC comedy has seen viewership this strong on Tuesday nights since the premiere season of Last Man Standing back in 2011.
Look for Season 9 of The Middle to premiere this fall as part of ABC's 2017-2018 lineup.
