ABC's 'Fresh Off the Boat' won't recast Constance Wu after renewal drama

ABC's 'Fresh Off the Boat' won't recast Constance Wu after renewal drama

No thought was given to recasting Wu's role as the sitcom's mom, network executive Karey Burke told a teleconference Tuesday. "We love what she does on the show", Burke said at ABC's Upfront presentation on May 14.

She added, "We never really considered not bringing back 'Fresh Off The Boat.' The show's just too strong for us".

With the new extension, Kimmel, already the longest-running late-night host now on broadcast, will bring his ABC talk show show to 20 seasons. "For all the fans support, thank u & for all who support my casual use of the word fuck-thank u too", she tweeted on Friday, May 10. "F-k", she wrote, following that up with a tweet that read, "F-king hell".

Jews Prefer Joe Biden Over Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders' campaign announced it had ratified a union contract, becoming the first presidential effort to achieve that. Lynch continues, "One of the reasons I'm supporting the Vice President is because on day one he will be a world leader".

The drama began on Friday afternoon, when the Crazy Rich Asians star posted a series of NSFW tweets (and an eyebrow-raising "Dislike" comment on Instagram) openly criticizing the sixth season renewal of her comedy series, Fresh Off the Boat, which will air Fridays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT this fall. She said she was temporarily frustrated that it would keep her from working on a passion project. I love the cast&crew.

"The thing that scares me [about ending 'Jimmy Kimmel Live"] is I don't know how I'll feel when I stop doing it...

Wu went on to regret her "insensitive" tweets, adding that "I know it's a huge privilege that I even have options - options that FOTB has afforded me". "I've gotten to fully explore my character and I know her like the back of my hand". I could see myself going, "OK, that's it, I'm done, ' and then going home and saying, 'What did I do?' I think that's happened, I've seen people do that. So I can both love the show/cast/crew but at the same time be disappointed that I lost that other unrelated job".
