The Huangs will remain on dry land for another year. ABC has renewed its Fresh Off the Boat TV show for a fifth season. Although the family comedy has slipped some in the Nielsens, it hasn’t taken on any significant water, so the renewal makes sense.
An ABC sitcom, Fresh Off the Boat stars Hudson Yang, Randall Park, Constance Wu, Forrest Wheeler, Ian Chen, Lucille Soong, Chesley Crisp, and Ray Wise. Set in the 1990s, the story centers on Eddie Huang (Yang), his parents Louis and Jessica (Park and Wu), brothers Emery (Wheeler) and Evan (Chen), and grandmother Jenny (Soong). It is loosely inspired by the early life of Chef Eddie Huang.
