Fresh Off the Boat Cancelled at ABC

.....Fresh Off the Boat is heading back out to sea; the ABC comedy’s current sixth season will also be its last. The show’s two-part series finale will air on Friday, Feb. 21 at 8/7c.

“We couldn’t be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape,” Karey Burke, President of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement. “The success of Fresh Off the Boat has helped pave the way for inclusion throughout the industry. Nahnatchka Khan and her brilliant creative team have created an unforgettable series with an Asian-American family front and center, something that hadn’t been done in two decades. The cast, led by Randall Park and Constance Wu, is one of the finest and funniest on television. We’ll miss the Huang family and are eternally grateful for the incredibly heartfelt stories they have told these past six seasons.”

Loosely inspired by Fresh Off the Boat, the autobiography of chef Eddie Huang, the series stars Randall Park as Louis, Contance Wu as Jessica, Hudson Yang as Eddie, Forrest Wheeler as Emery, Ian Chen as Evan, Lucille Soong as Jenny, Chelsey Crip as Honey and Ray Wise as Marvin.

Fresh Off the Boat found itself in hot water earlier this year when Wu tweeted several less-than-favorable reactions to the show’s Season 6 renewal.

Wu later clarified her outburst, explaining, “I was temporarily upset… not because I hate the show but because its renewal meant I had to give up another project that I was really passionate about… People can hold conflicting feelings in their hearts: I can both love the show/cast/crew but at the same time be disappointed that I lost that other unrelated job.”

ABC is currently developing a Fresh Off the Boat spinoff focused on an Indian family whose daughter attends school with Eddie; those new characters are expected to be introduced in an upcoming episode.



no longer......fresh......but stale..........?!

At least Constance Wu's movie career won't be held back by a trifling TV show.

She can now become the superstar she was always meant to be.
