HBO Max announced today that it not only has exclusively acquired the once-popular ABC TV series “The Middle” to its streaming service, but that all nine seasons of the show are available to stream on it today.
This is another popular TV series the streaming service has acquired after it launched this past spring. This past fall, it got the exclusive streaming rights to CBS’s “Young Sheldon” TV series, a spin-off of “The Big Bang Theory,” which aired on CBS for 12 seasons.
Here is how HBO Max describes “The Middle” to those who do not know about the series:
“Two-time Emmy® winner Patricia Heaton stars in this warm and witty single-camera comedy about raising a family and lowering your expectations. Middle-aged, middle class, and living in the middle of the country in Orson, Indiana, Frankie Heck (Heaton) is a harried wife and mother of three who uses her wry wit and sense of humor to get her family through each day intact. Frankie works as a dental assistant, and her unflappable husband Mike is manager at the local quarry and her sardonic partner in the daily grind that is raising their average — yes, most definitely average — family. Between juggling shifts and picking up fast food to be eaten in front of the TV, Frankie and Mike raise their kids — popular slacker Axl; optimistic, awkward Sue; odd, eccentric Brick — with love, humor and solid midwestern pragmatism. Year after year, their struggles continue, but through all the madness shines a loving family — and together, the Hecks put The Middle on the map.”
“The Middle” has 215 episodes over the course of nine seasons.
HBO Max costs $14.99 a month and is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
