ABC has announced that "Fresh off the Boat" will end after a six-season run in February.


The series portrays an Asian-American family's experience living in suburban Orlando and running a steakhouse in the late 1990's.  It's based on the autobiography of chef Eddie Huang.

"I'm so proud of the show and what we’ve accomplished over the past six seasons," said series creator Nahnatchka Khan in a news release.

"Thank you to everyone at ABC and 20th Century Fox Television for going on this ride with us. It was truly a special experience and hopefully will forever be a reminder of all the stories out there that deserve to be told. Like B.I.G. said, ‘And if you don’t know, now you know.’"

The series' stars include Randall Park and Constance Wu, who play Huang's parents.  Wu recently found success in the film "Crazy Rich Asians" and apologized for posting an expletive-filled lament after the series' renewal for a sixth season was announced last spring.

The sixth season portrays the family at a crossroads.  Eddie, played by Hudson Yang, is weighing whether to attend college or to take a different path, while his mother is becoming an educator and his father tries to become a business consulant.

"Fresh off the Boat" airs Friday nights at 7:30 Central time on ABC and WDIO.  It will conclude with an hourlong episode on Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. Central time.
