ABC has had a tough time launching new family comedies but, last season, they found success with Black-ish and mid-season sitcom Fresh Off The Boat. Will the latter grow its audience in season two or will ratings shrink? Cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
On Fresh Off the Boat, a Taiwanese family 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 castmembers are Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, Ian Chen, Lucille Soong, and Chelsey Crisp.
