'The Middle' renewed for Season 6 on ABC

the-middle-renewed-season-6.jpgAmid the blizzard of series renewals and pilot pickups from ABC late Thursday (May 8), one show was conspicuously not mentioned: "The Middle."

Not to worry, Heck fans: The show is indeed coming back for a sixth season in 2014-15. Deadline was first to report the news.

The show remains a solid performer for ABC, averaging a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49 in the Live +7 ratings and about 9.5 million viewers.

"The Middle" joins "Modern Family" and "The Goldbergs" in getting a pickup for 2014-15. ABC has yet to make a decision on its other comedies.
