'Fresh Off the Boat' ending with season 6 on ABC

'Fresh Off the Boat' ending with season 6 on ABC

Fresh Off the Boat, the ABC sitcom that Wu has starred on since 2015, has been canceled, with Vulture reporting that its current sixth season will be its last.

"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 the Friday announcement.

As the show's ratings declined in recent years, ABC moved Fresh Off the Boat from its Tuesday night family block to a revived TGIF block on Fridays, but that hasn't improved its performance.

Inspired by chef Eddie Huang's memoir of the same name and adapted for television by Nahnatchka Khan, "Fresh Off the Boat" has become the longest-running broadcast TV sitcom about an Asian American family. "We'll miss the Huang family and are eternally grateful for the incredibly heartfelt stories they have told these past six seasons", Burke said. Fresh Off the Boat stars Randall Park as Louis Huang, Constance Wu as Jessica Huang, Hudson Yang as Eddie Huang, Forrest Wheeler as Emery Huang, Ian Chen as Evan Huang, Lucille Soong as Grandma Huang, Chelsey Crisp as Honey and Ray Wise as Marvin.

"I'm so proud of the show and what we've accomplished over the past six seasons", added series creator Khan. "Thank you to everyone at ABC and 20th Century Fox Television for going on this ride with us".

The show focuses on the Huang's family move from Washington, D.C.'s Chinatown to the suburbs of Orlando, Fla., and is filled with the ensuing micro-aggressions that are specific to the Asian Americans. It was truly a special experience and hopefully will forever be a reminder of all the stories out there that deserve to be told.

Star Constance Wu reacted strongly after the show was renewed for a sixth season back in May, taking to Twitter to write: 'F***ing hell'. Huang narrated the first season but left the show in the second cycle, just as it began finding its stride and viewers tuned in every week to see Wu deliver Jessica's memorable one-liners.

Wu would later explain that she was simply "temporarily upset" because the show returning meant she "had to give up another project that I was really passionate about". This time, however, she and her fellow cast members were mum on the cancellation on social media.

Fresh Off The Boat will come to an end after its sixth season.

Still, the show will end on a strong note, completing over 110 episodes by the time it wraps early next year. She was later cast as the lead alongside Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers, which opened to critical acclaim in September and has earned Oscar buzz for Lopez.
