ABC is no longer developing The Middle spinoff Sue in the City as a series.

The network confirmed to Variety that it dropped the project after taping a pilot episode with Eden Sher reprising her young adult character Sue Heck.

"Frustrating. I was really excited for this," a television critic posted on Twitter, along with a link to the story.

"Samesies," Sher responded with a sad face emoji.

The decision to cancel the show was made as Channing Dungey left her post as ABC's entertainment president. Karey Burke has since taken her place.

Deadline.com said the show's producers may try to shop it around to other networks.

Last month, it was announced Kimberley Crossman and Brock Ciarlelli had joined the pilot, which follows Indiana native Sue working in a Chicago hotel.

Co-starring Patricia Heaton, Charlie McDermott, Atticus Shaffer and Neil Flynn, "The Middle" ended in May after nine seasons.
