Moving forward Constance won't have to worry about starring in any future episodes, as Fresh Off the Boat will conclude for good when the sixth season finale airs in February (20).

Written by Fresh Off the Boat writer-producer Rachna Fruchbom, the episode that will introduce the family in FOTB has not been filmed yet.

Reflecting upon the show's success, President Of ABC Entertainment Karey Burke told Variety: 'We couldn't be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape'.

The show about a couple and their three children in 1990s Florida is based on chef Eddie Huang's memoir of the same name.

Of course, it may not have helped that most of the buzz surrounding Fresh Off the Boat Season 6 concerns not the exploits of the Huang family, but rather leading lady Constance Wu's reaction to the renewal news back when it first broke.

ABC and 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show, declined to comment. Additionally, the announcement of the renewal of the show's sixth season was shrouded by controversy after Constance Wu famously tweeted, "So upset right now that I'm literally crying".

"(Creator) Nahnatchka Khan and her brilliant creative team have created an unforgettable series with an Asian-American family front and center, something that hadn't been done in two decades. It was truly a special experience and hopefully will forever be a reminder of all the stories out there that deserve to be told.

The series' stars include Randall Park and Constance Wu, who play Huang's parents. We'll move up the Huang family and are eternally grateful for the extremely heartfelt tales they've instructed these earlier six seasons. Wu, as of this writing, had not responded to news of the show's cancellation publically. While she later clarified the statement-apparently she was just upset that FOTB's renewal meant turning down another exciting project-many continued to point out the huge privilege she's had as a working actress.

Talking to the Los Angeles Times, she said: 'I'm dramatic.

She said it was an emotional reaction to having to pass on a passion project because it conflicted with "Fresh Off the Boat".

The comedy that airs at 8:30 p.m. EST Friday is averaging 3.1 million weekly viewers for the season to date, making it No. 69 out of about 80 network programs.
