After nine season on ABC, ‘The Middle’ is embarking on it’s final road trip of the series. Tuesday, May 22 at 8pm the one-hour series finale kicks off on My ABC WOTV 4.
Patricia Heaton chatted with us about the nine season-long run, watching her TV children grow up on-air and what to expect on the big finale episode.
The show has grown in popularity as it highlights middle America in the “fly over states”. Heaton says when the series began, television sitcoms weren’t tackling the issues facing every day working families who live, “in the middle”.
She also reflected on how getting to play the role of “Frankie Heck” was much different than her past TV roles. She told us she really enjoyed getting to be a bit more aloof and the emotional character while her TV husband, Mike, got to play the role of the steadfast, calm and collected one.
Tune in for the series finale tonight on MY ABC WOTV 4 starting at 8pm.
