What's up with The Middleman?

The Middleman was not really my cup of tea, but as ABC Family has been setting return dates for other summer series - including The Secret Life of The American Teenager and Kyle XY - I imagine that those of you that did enjoy it are wondering what its status is.

Currently, the status remains unchanged: unknown.

However, in a recent interview with io9, it's sounding like creator Javier Grillo-Marxuach isn't particularly optimistic:

"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."
