ABC has topped up Season 2 of Fresh Off the Boat, ordering an additional nine episodes of the comedy. The network had originally picked up 13 episodes of the sitcom for its sophomore outing, matching its first-season total.
Solid ratings raised ABC's confidence in the show, which was upgraded to a regular season debut in 2015-2016 rather than the mid-season status it premiered with back in February. The extra episodes mean the show gets its first traditional full season of 22 episodes.
