Middleman Done?

IO9 has been checking up on the status of MIDDLEMAN and received the following response from Javier Grillo-Marxuach:

I don't think ABC Family is ready to throw in the towel just yet. They love, and — more importantly — own The Middleman. But I think it's fair to say that they aren't going to order any new episodes in the immediate future. Right now, we are all focused on closing a deal for a DVD set that will please the fans with a lot of bonus material, bring new viewers to the show, and secure the show's legacy and longevity. As was the case with shows like Firefly, and Family Guy, the sales of the DVD will truly be the barometer for the future of The Middleman.

I'll be buying the DVD set. Maybe even a few as gifts if I get myself a day job to replace the one that laid me off recently. Darn this economy...keeping me from supporting a good TV show as much as I want...


  1. Ooof. You're laid off, too? Good luck out there, man.

  2. And Middleman rocks, by the way. We've got one more episode to savor left on our Tivo. We've been rationing.

  3. Love the series and hope it gets enough attention to continue on. Even loved the omnibus.

  4. Rob S.: Thanks. I appreciate it. Good luck to you, as well...and here's hoping we have more Middleman to watch on our Tivos after returning home from a long work week.

    Igignoc: Yeah, it's really great stuff. Spread the word so we get more.
