Basic info and storyline
Fresh Off the Boat is an American semi-autobiographical ethnic comedy television series that is based on a book written by chef and food personality Eddie Huang. Starring Randall Park, Constance Wu and Hudson Yang, this series is the first situation comedy starring an Asian-American family to air on primetime network television in two decades. Season 3 of the show debuted on ABC on October 11, 2016.
The series follows a Taiwanese immigrant family that has recently moved from Chinatown in Washington D.C. to Orlando, Florida and opened their own cowboy-themed restaurant. In pursuit of the American Dream they struggle to assimilate in a mainly white community of Orlando. Though the father seems to embrace the opportunity, the rest of the family feels quite a culture shock. The protagonist of the series is the hip-hop loving 12-year-old Eddie, who is determined to assimilate in his new school and neighborhood with the help of his two younger brothers.
Ratings and chances of renewal
Since the first season came out, Fresh Off the Boat has enjoyed positive reviews, as the show is deeply relatable to practically every immigrant in the United States, as well as to Asian-American families, who are severely underrepresented on television. Although Eddie Huang, who is the author of “Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir”, is extremely unsatisfied with the screenplay, ABC picked it up for another season due to its popularity and excellent ratings – 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and 8/10 on IMDb. Season two averaged 5.49 million viewers per episode, while the current installment premiered to 5.03 million. Based on the second series` success, the renewal was a no-brainer, considering the hard time that ABC had with launching new family comedies last year. If the show remains as popular, we are likely to see Fresh Off the Boat season 4 in 2017.
