Warner Bros. Television is peculiar for a variety of up-and-coming serials with one of them titled “The Middle” that has been created in collaboration with Blackie and Blondie Productions since 2009. So the series that is a sitcom by the genre is a long-running brainchild of Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline. These two serve also as executives together with Werner Walian, Vijal Patel, Roy Brown and Robin Shorr.
The acting crew of the series is composed of Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher and Atticus Shaffer.

We cannot but notice that the storyline of this series is rather ordinary with the main characters hailing from one family named the Hecks. They are the residents of the provincial town in Southwest Indiana. Frankie and Mike is a married couple who owns three children named Sue, Axl, and Brick. The story revolves around their routine everyday life.

Solid ratings have been delivered after the release of each season since 2009. So the series can be referred now to settlers on ABC.
The series has obtained a number of awards, as well as nominations including Emmy Award and Critics Choice Television Award.
Though the latest season is already the seventh circle of episodes, its average viewership includes 7 million people per episode. So chances of several future revivals are great if the figures are not going to slow down.
