According to TV Guide, Romano will play Nicky Kohlbrenner, a man from Frankie Heck's (Heaton) past. Look for the character to have had some involvement in ruining Frankie's honeymoon many years ago. The premiere episode will also see the Heck family embark on a road trip.
Romano is coming off the cancellation of his TNT drama 'Men of a Certain Age.' He also appeared in 'The Office' season finale as a potential branch manager replacement.
In the Season 2 premiere, 'Raymond' veteran Doris Roberts appeared as the teacher to one of Frankie's kids. If this trend continues, Brad Garrett, you better start getting ready for the Season 4 premiere!
'The Middle' returns with a special 1-hour premiere Wed., Sept. 21 at 8PM ET on ABC
