ABC's The Middle returns for its ninth and final season on October 3, and the sitcom just released its last-ever key art!

The series has been one of longest-running comedies on ABC after the network's other hit show, Modern Family. During its final season, The Middle, which follows the middle-class Heck family from Indiana as they navigate through the ups and downs of life, will also hit another major milestone: its 200th episode.
