‘Fresh Off The Boat’ Just Got Renewed For Season 5 and We Can’t Contain Ourselves

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.
