In early April, Randall Park released a Facebook video making a desperate plea to fans to save “Fresh Off The Boat” from being cancelled by ABC.
Park, who plays Louis Huang, the father of Eddie Huang on the show, included a survey conducted by USA Today, which listed 30 TV shows, including “Fresh Off the Boat,” that were in danger of being cancelled.
Although the show was a big hit when it was released in 2015, ratings have significantly dropped recently, losing roughly 13% of it’s audience from the 18 – 49 demographic in the latest season.
Fans everywhere rallied on social media
urging others to caste their votes in USA Today’s poll and tweet at ABC at @ABCNetwork with the hashtag #SaveFOTB.
Today, ABC decided to renew “Fresh Off The Boat” for a 5th season, leaving many fans delighted. Cast members went on social media to celebrate.
Congrats to the “Fresh Off the Boat” Family!
