Fresh Off The Boat Season 6: Everything We Know So Far

Even though Constance Wu might not have been happy with the renewal news, the fans of the series have been delighted to know that the Huangs are coming back.

'Fresh off the Boat' has been renewed for a sixth season and though the news may not have pleased everyone, fans are pretty much excited to know what's in store for Eddie Huang and his family as season 5 ended with a happy note. The story of the series has been adapted from the real-life story of Eddie Huang's autobiography of the same name. The show became the first network sitcom about an Asian-American family to air in 20 years, since Margaret Cho's 'All-American Girl', which aired for one season in 1994. The ratings of all the five seasons averaged a 0.61 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.03 million viewers. That number is not really great news since it means the viewership went down by 40% and 21%, respectively.
