ABC is firming up their schedule for 2017-2018 today, renewing Fresh Off the Boat for a fourth season. The Asian-American comedy has been pulling its weight on Tuesday nights, airing in the 9:00pm time slot following the recently-renewed American Housewife.
Loosely-based on the memoir of food personality Eddie Huang, Fresh Off the Boat follows a teenaged Eddie after moving from D.C. to the Orlando suburbs with his family in the 90s. With no Chinatown like they were used to in Washington, the family quickly find out that things are now quite different than they are used to. Eddie's dad is chasing the American dream and opens a western food restaurant, while his mother struggles with the differences in culture between her old life and her new one.
