“Fresh Off the Boat” has been canceled by ABC after six seasons.
ABC entertainment president Karey Burke said in a statement: “We couldn’t be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape. 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.”
“Fresh Off the Boat” debuted in 2015 and is loosely based on Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name. The series depicts a young Huang and his Taiwanese-American family in Florida in the 1990s.
The show will end with an hour-long finale on Friday, Feb. 21 at 8 p.m.
