THR is reporting that ABC has scrapped a spinoff of The Middle that would have seen Eden Sher continue playing the role of Sue Heck.
According to the media house, the network put the offshoot, Sue Sue in the City in development shortly after The Middle ended its nine-season run. The spinoff would have followed Sue as she finished college and started life on her own in Chicago.
The spinoff was created by DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler, and Warner Bros. TV, but now that it had been scrapped, another studio may show interest in it.
The news comes the same day that ABC canceled summer series Take Two after a single season.
