ABC Renews Speechless and Fresh Off the Boat

Not surprising, but it still makes us happy

Tim Surette

ABC solidified its Tuesday night comedy block, officially handing out renewals to Fresh off the Boat and Speechless, has learned.

Fresh Off the Boat, about a Taiwanese family living in Orlando, will return for a fourth season, while Speechless, starring Minnie Driver as the matriarch of a family that includes a disabled son, will be back for a second season.

The renewals shouldn't be too surprising as both have been steady performers and favorites of critics. Speechless was ABC's fourth-highest-rated series this season while Fresh Off the Boat was just outside the network's top 10.

What's renewed? What's canceled? Here's the 2016-2017 TV scorecard

With The Middle getting an early renewal and American Housewife receiving a second season yesterday, all four shows in ABC's Tuesday night comedy block will return. Whether ABC keeps them all on Tuesday or not is a different story.

ABC is expected to announce its 2017-2018 fall schedule on Tuesday, May 16.
