You may have noticed two things when you saw our list.

Second, that there’s at least one new release every year (except from the hiatus in 2019), so yes, we can assume that there will be a new Middle School book in 2022!
Let’s talk about the movies
There is a movie adaptation of the first book in the series, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. The film was released in 2016 and was directed by Steve Carr, starring Griffin Gluck for the role of Rafe.
The film had an $8.5 budget and it grossed $23 million. This movie has a 63 out of 100 on Rottentomatoes, while it has a 5.5 out of 10 on Metacritic.
There was a planned sequel for this film, for which there is no released date confirmed yet, and since four years have passed since the first movie, it is not much clear that the movie will end up being filmed.
