When Clyde inherits a $100,000 a month inheritance from his long-dead eccentric Uncle Bill, he decides that the cash will be his secret super power and will use it only for good and reward the good-hearted.”
However, there’s no word on whether the plot will remain the same.

The Middle stars made their rounds promoting their 100th episode, which aired that night.
“I almost feel like when I look back on this, I’m going to think, ‘This is the glory days.’ I can’t take this for granted. I feel like I’m being the high school jock in the moment, but I’m so aware that I’m in this amazing heaven place that I’m in a constant state of trying to absorb it all,” Eden shared with THR of the The Middle making it to number 100. “It is a unicorn of television [reaching 100]. It’s very surreal.”
Charlie added of his favorite episode, thus far: “I loved the life skills episode, which was last year. Axl and Sue had to do a class project together and Sue actually messed up, which is surprising and Axl stepped in to save the day. I wasn’t just making fun of her, which it usually is, and I don’t think that ever happened again or before. It was cool to be on the same side.”
Eden, Charlie and Atticus, along with on-screen parents Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn, also stopped by SiriusXM and The View.
