The Heck story continues!

It looks like fans' wishes have been answered, because we're about to see more Sue. Eden Sher confirmed that ABC has ordered a pilot for a potential The Middle spinoff series.

The actress told TV Line at 2018 San Diego Comic-Con that “we are shooting a pilot.”

“I hope it gets picked up! I think it’s going to be great," she said.

The Middle finished its nine-season run in May with Sue in college. But flash-forwards revealed that she does indeed marry neighbor Sean, and TV Line is reporting the spinoff would take place "several years" after the finale but before Sue "settles down."

"The [flash-forward] was like a ‘happily ever after,'” added Sher. “Sue being Sue as a young adult.”

If the pilot got picked up, it wouldn't be the only spinoff series to air on ABC this year. The network has also ordered The Conners (working title), a 10-episode spinoff series from the canceled Roseanne reboot, with all of that show's main cast returning except its polarizing star.
