fresh off the boat
“Fresh Off the Boat” actor Hudson Yang was just accepted into the Harvard Class of 2025 as part of the university’s early admission program.
The 17-year-old actor shared the amazing news on Twitter Friday, according to The Wrap.
ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” will conclude the series with its current season, with a one-hour finale episode which is set to air on February 21.
The TV series, which follows the story of a Taiwanese American family in the ’90s, is loosely based on a memoir by Eddie Huang called “Fresh Off the Boat.” The series which premiered in 2015, made history by becoming the longest-running broadcast TV sitcom about an Asian American family.
ABC has reportedly entered early development stages for its planned “Fresh Off The Boat” spin-off, sources close to the matter have revealed.
ABC’s entertainment president Karey Burke has yet to talk to Constance Wu since her controversial series of tweets in May expressing apparent unhappiness that “Fresh Off The Boat” is getting renewed for another season.
Wu, who stars in the hit show as matriarch Jessica Huang, tweeted that she was “so upset right now that I’m literally crying. Ugh. Fuck,” along with several other cryptic tweets.
An emotional drama project is apparently the reason behind Constance Wu’s infamous Twitter rant following the announcement of the season six return of her TV show “Fresh Off the Boat,” the New York Post reports.
Sources privy to the planned project revealed that Wu had been preparing to play a struggling heroin addict.
ABC has no plans of recasting Constance Wu on “Fresh Off the Boat” following a social media uproar the 37-year-old actor had set last week.
Just after the announcement of the show’s sixth season, Wu posted a pair of mysterious tweets, with one saying “F***ing hell.”
Hollywood celebrities are now doing a “Constance Wu” on social media by sharing feigned dissatisfaction over their own show’s season renewal.
Wu recently sparked criticisms after her expressing apparent frustration online over the news that her sitcom “Fresh Off the Boat” will be getting its sixth season.
When ABC announced that “Fresh Off the Boat” had been renewed for a sixth season on Twitter, fans of the show expressed excitement, with many cheering the cast for their success.
Just like any other celebrities in Hollywood, Constance Wu was also knee deep in debt before she landed her major roles, particularly in ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” and the novel-to-film adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s “Crazy Rich Asians.”
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.
Bob’s Burger writer Kelvin Yu has accused the latest episode of ABC’s “Roseanne” of being “reductive” and “belittling” after a joke was made about the other programs on the channel featuring POC families.
The scene in question featured the titular character and her husband, Dan Conner, asleep on the couch. Upon waking up, they realized they had fallen asleep from “Wheel to Kimmel,” accidentally snoozing through shows like “Fresh Off The Boat” and “Black-ish”.
ABC’s “Fresh Off The Boat” is reportedly at risk of getting canceled, so lead actor Randall Park is appealing to fans to help save the show.
Park, who plays Louis Huang, patriarch of the show’s Chinese American family, made his appeal via a video included in a poll spearheaded by USA Today. The publication’s survey listed 30 television shows — “Fresh Off The Boat” included — that are in danger of being canceled.
