ABC announced today that Fresh Off the Boat will be returning for a sixth season. The good news comes a month after the comedy's Season 5 finale.

The veteran Asian-American sitcom has done well for itself since a move to Friday nights this season. While its ratings aren't what they were in its heyday, it is drawing respectable numbers in the 8:00pm time slot. The series recently celebrated its 100th episode.

Loosely-based on the memoir of food personality Eddie Huang, Fresh Off the Boat follows a teenage 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.
