The Middle: ABC TV Show Renewed for a Seventh Season

8 May 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

There was speculation that The Middle might be coming to an end because contracts were up and Charlie McDermott signed on for a CBS pilot. Well, with or without son Axl, The Middle is coming back for a seventh season on ABC.

Taking place in Orson, Indiana, The Middle revolves around the Heck family. It's headed by Mike (Neil Flynn), who manages a local quarry, and Frankie (Patricia Heaton), a dental assistant. Together, they do their best to make ends meet, have a relationship, and raise their three very different kids (McDermott, Eden Sher, and Atticus Shaffer).

7 May 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Following new series orders for the 2015-16 season — and cancellations of “Forever,” “Cristela,” “Resurrection” and “The Taste” — ABC has handed over renewals to a slew of returning series.

Most shows on the bubble will be coming back including “Castle” for Season 8, “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” for Season 3, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” for Season 2 and “Nashville” for Season 4. Also returning is “Once Upon A Time” with its fifth season.

Still up in the air is Stana Katic‘s status for the eighth season of “Castle,” which has locked down her male lead Nathan Fillion and will be seeing a shift in showrunner for the new episodes, as David Amann will be stepping away from the show.

6 May 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ah, the Critics' Choice Awards. Or more accurately, "what you wish the Emmy nominations looked like." Like the Emmys, HBO features heavily in the list this year (27 nominations), but unlike the Emmys, so does the very deserving FX (16 nominations). Even the CW gets a look-in here, along with individual and fantastic series like Wolf Hall (PBS) and Rectify (Sundance). The list may still not be perfect, but it's pretty darn close. The 5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, held by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, will be broadcast live on May 31st at 8 p.m. on A&E. Check out the full list of nominees below: Best comedy series Broad City (Comedy Central) Jane the Virgin (The CW) Mom (CBS) Silicon Valley (HBO) Transparent (Amazon) Veep (HBO) You’re the Worst (FX) [caption id="attachment_410423" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] Best actor in a comedy series Anthony Anderson, Blackish (ABC) Chris Messina, The Mindy Project (Fox) Jeffrey Tambor, »
