Fresh Off the Boat is coming to an end.
ABC has decided that season six of the family comedy will be its last. According to Deadline, the cancelation comes with little surprise as the ratings for the series haven’t been strong.
Based on a memoir by Eddie Huan, and hailing from Nahnatchka Khan, FOTB followed the Huang family who move from Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown, to Orlando in the mid-1990s.
“We couldn’t be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape,” Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment said.
“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’s six seasons-run will come to an end on February 21.
