‘The Middle’ Spinoff to Reunite Brad Bottig With Sue Heck

ABC has given its Sue Heck-led spinoff of “The Middle” a title, and added her Bff Brad as a series regular.

Brock Ciarelli, who appeared in 56 episodes on the ABC sitcom as Brad Bottig, the best friend of Eden Sher’s Sue Heck, will be joining the spinoff — now titled “Sue in the City” — as part of the main cast.

Led by Sher, the comedy will follow the twentysomething adventures of eternal optimist Sue Heck, as she leaves the small town of Orson to navigate the ups and downs of a career and young adulthood in the big city of Chicago.

As TheWrap reported in May, ABC was in development on a Sher-led spinoff shortly after the single-camera comedy wrapped its nine-season run, though at the time no deals were in place.
