Eddie Huang may not be crazy about Fresh Off the Boat but ABC is happy to have it on their schedule. The network has renewed the new sitcom for a second season.
Based on a memoir by Huang, Fresh Off the Boat revolves around a Taiwanese family that moves from Chinatown in Washington, DC to Orlando, Florida. They open a steak restaurant and experience serious culture shock while pursuing the American Dream. The family members are played by Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, and Ian Chen.
The sitcom has performed well for ABC on Tuesday nights, giving the network a foothold in what’s been a challenging night for them. It’s also been one of the current season’s most diverse shows. The first season ended up averaging a 1.73 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.75 million viewers.
