Season six of Fresh Off the Boat will be its last.
The family comedy from Nahnatchka Khan starring Constance Wu and Randall Park has been canceled. According to Deadline, the cancelation follows the show’s weak ratings.
“I’m so proud of the show and what we’ve accomplished over the past six seasons,” said series creator Khan. “Thank you to everyone at ABC and 20th Century Fox Television for going on this ride with us. It was truly a special experience and hopefully will forever be a reminder of all the stories out there that deserve to be told. Like B.I.G. said, ‘And if you don’t know, now you know.’”
“We couldn’t be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape,” Karey Burke, president of 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.
