ABC cancels ‘Fresh Off the Boat,’ sets finale for February

"The success of "Fresh Off the Boat" has helped pave the way for inclusion throughout the industry". Nahnatchka Khan and her good modern crew have designed an unforgettable collection with an Asian-American relations entrance and centre, a bit of one thing that hadn't been completed in two a very long time. The single-camera comedy was the first show to celebrate Chinese New Year and the first network show to travel to Asia.

"I'm so proud of the show and what we've accomplished over the past six seasons", added series creator Khan.

ABC and 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show, declined to comment. In this final season, the Huang family is at a crossroads. It was truly a special experience and hopefully will forever be a reminder of all the stories out there that deserve to be told. Constance Wu plays his mother Jessica, Randall Park his father Louis and Lucille Soong his grandmother, who speaks Chinese on the show with English subtitles. We'll move up the Huang family and are eternally grateful for the extremely heartfelt tales they've instructed these earlier six seasons.

As of Friday morning, Wu didn't have a negative public reaction to the announcement like she did when news broke in the spring that the show had been renewed for a sixth season.

"I've gotten to fully explore my character and I know her like the back of my hand".

Over the years, viewers of the show were able to watch the three child actors, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, and Ian Chen, grow up and develop as actors.

The shame, of course, is that the series ending has led to a lot of jokes about star Constance Wu, who publicly expressed displeasure about the show being renewed for a sixth season due to some film offers that she would be forced to turn down. "So upset that I'm literally crying", she tweeted, later clarifying that she was distressed because she didn't want to give up another potential project in the works.

Despite its dedicated fan base, Fresh Of The Boat has experienced a slump in ratings over the past few seasons, moving from ABC's Tuesday comedy line up to Friday nights in its fifth season.
