‘Fresh Off the Boat’ Reaches Syndication Deal

“Fresh Off the Boat,” produced by 20th Television, has reached a syndication deal with Freeform and Up TV, to begin airing later this year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The ABC family sitcom was renewed for a fifth season in May, and currently has 79 episodes to its name. That makes it the longest-running show led by Asian Americans in TV history.

Set in the ‘90s, the show follows the Huang family — portrayed by Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, Ian Chen, Lucille Soong — as they navigate American life in the Orlando suburbs. The story is based on the real-life memoir of chef Eddie Huang.

Sarah Tomassi Lindman, Freeform’s content planning and strategy senior VP, said in a statement that the Huangs’ “authentic, humorous and meaningful way of navigating a new environment reflects our viewers’ experiences and are exactly the kinds of stories we are proud to have on our network.”
