ABC has renewed comedy The Middle for a fourth season. The series has managed to amass a loyal fan base and hold reasonably steady ratings over its 3 years on the air. Today's renewal comes alongside a slew of other pick-ups by ABC: Revenge, Castle, Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, Modern Family and Suburgatory will also be back for the 2012-2013 season.
The Middle is scheduled to air its third season finale later this month on May 23. There is no word on a return date or the number of episodes planned for Season 4.
