FRESH OFF THE BOAT will end with an abbreviated sixth season, ABC confirms. Vulture was the first to report the cancellation.

Per Vulture, ABC notified the production and cast that they wouldn’t be ordering additional episodes, and the upcoming 15th installment of the year would be its last. (Six episodes of season 6 have aired so far.) The series will sign off with a one-hour finale on Friday, February 21, at 8/7c.

“We couldn’t be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape,” Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment, said in a statement. “The success of FRESH OFF THE BOAT has helped pave the way for inclusion throughout the industry. 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. The cast, led by Randall Park and Constance Wu, is one of the finest and funniest on television. We’ll miss the Huang family and are eternally grateful for the incredibly heartfelt stories they have told these past six seasons.”

“I’m so proud of the show and what we’ve accomplished over the past six seasons,” added Khan. “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 family comedy starred Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, Ian Chen, Lucille Soong, Chelsey Crisp, and Ray Wise.
