Fresh Off the Boat Gets Season 6 Renewal on ABC
On May 10, ABC announced that the sitcom Fresh Off the Boat had been renewed for Season 6. The official decision on renewal has appeared on the network's Twitter page. No release date has been set as of yet. Nonetheless, if you are among the devoted fans of the comedy series, it's not a secret for you that the upcoming premiere is most likely scheduled for this fall. Yet, it's worth noting that Fresh Off the Boat has lost over a third (-36.85%) of the show's target audience.

Fresh Off the Boat Season 5 premiere has garnered 2.850 million viewers with a 0.59 key demographic rating among adults (P18-49). However, also worth mentioning that the viewing audience managed to be leveled within the following episodes, about three million viewers per episode. Even despite such a drop in the viewership, ABC opted to renew Fresh Off the Boat for a next round. The decision on renewal is also justified if we take a look at the reception of the current installment of the show. On Rotten Tomatoes, Fresh Off the Boat Season 5 holds a score of 3.9/5 and a 70% approval rating.
Fresh Off the Boat Season 6 Release Date
ABC has yet to set Fresh Off the Boat Season 6 release date in the official announcement. However, if we take a look at the three recent seasons of the show, each of them has kicked off in October. We don't think that ABC is going to change its schedule. Therefore, we have every reason to believe that Fresh Off the Boat Season 6 is set to premiere in October 2019.
Of course, we don't rule out that the network would decide to change the premiere date for September (as it was with Season 2), or even for February 2020 (by analogy with Season 1). As a result, in any case, we are looking forward to the official announcement from ABC. As soon as the network provides us any additional data on the subject of Fresh Off the Boat Season 6 release date, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
Fresh Off the Boat Summary
The story focuses on one Taiwanese family living in the US and is inspired by the eponymous Eddie Huang's best-selling memoir. He moved with his family from a Chinatown section of Washington, DC to Orlando, Florida, by having an idea to create own eatery. At that date, in 1995, he was an 11-year-old hip-hop lover. Eddie's father, Louis, has always been dreaming of opening a cowboy-themed steak restaurant.
At the same time, his mother, Jessica, was experiencing troubles since the suburb had no sizeable Asian population. Additionally, Jessica desired that her children don't lose connection with their Taiwanese roots. The sitcom thereby depicts the family struggles with assimilating at the new place.
