Television renewals are usually greeted with excitement by the shows stars, but actress Constance Wu said she was so upsetafter news broke that Fresh Off The Boat is going to be renewed for a sixth season.
So upset right now that Im literally crying, she wrote on Twitter. Ugh. Fuck.
Fucking hell, the actress wrote in another tweet after the renewal was announced.
It also appears Wu commented on Fresh Off The Boats Instagram post about the renewal, writing Dislike.
Later Friday evening, the actress tweeted that her recent social media activities were not a rampage and said it’s not what people thought it was.
Yall are making a lot of assumptions about what I was saying. And no, its not what its about, Wu wrote. No its not..what this is all about. Stop assuming.
She then added that her tweets had resulted from a rough day and were ill timed with the news.
Plz know, I’m so grateful for FOTB renewal, she tweeted. I love the cast & crew. I’m proud to be a part of it.
News about the continuation of the show came after a recent announcement that creator Nahnatchka Khan would be stepping down as showrunner. Wus movie career is also taking off with the success of Crazy Rich Asians.
For the past five seasons, Wu has played a Chinese immigrant mother named Jessica Huang raising a family in Florida during the 80s and 90s alongside her husband and her two sons. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show was the first Asian-American comedy on broadcast television in two decades.
Wus representative did not immediately respond to The Daily Beasts request for comment.
