Update: Constance Wu has issued a statement clarifying her dismayed reaction to the renewal of "Fresh Off the Boat:" It's not that she doesn't love her show, she says, but that its renewal meant she had to give up a project she "was really passionate about."
Here's her entire statement:
She also tweeted, "Today's tweets were on the heels of rough day & were ill timed w/the news of the show. Plz know, I'm so grateful for FOTB renewal. I love the cast&crew. I'm proud to be a part of it. For all the fans support, thank u & for all who support my casual use of the word f**k. Thank u too."
Usually word that your show is getting renewed is a good thing.
But not for "Fresh Off the Boat," star Constance Wu. The actress tweeted that she is "so upset right now" at the news the ABC show is coming back for a sixth season. And that she is "literally crying."
It's possible she's stressed about juggling the sitcom with her commitment to the "Crazy Rich Asians" film series. She's starring in the movie "Hustlers" with Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B.
According to TV Line, the series is ranked 11th out of 12 ABC sitcoms this season.
