ABC’s ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ won’t recast Constance Wu after renewal drama

Constance Wu will remain stuck on her boat.

ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke said on Tuesday that Wu, 36, will be staying on “Fresh Off the Boat” despite declaring her disdain for the show’s sixth season renewal.

“There’s been no thought to recasting Constance,” she said when asked by a reporter. “We love what she does with the show and we love the show…”

She added, “We never really considered not bringing back ‘Fresh Off The Boat.’ The show’s just too strong for us.”

Burke also seemed to reference Wu’s non-apology statement regarding her tweets and Instagram comments, saying, “I’m going to choose to believe Constance’s most recent communication about the show that she’s happy to return. The cast and crew is happy to have her back and were thrilled to have her back.”

After tweeting “f–king hell,” among other comments, shortly after news of “Fresh Off the Boat’s” renewal, Wu clarified that she was happy to be on the show but it meant she had to “give up another project.” She ended her statement by asking fans to believe her and “believe women,” which many felt was out of touch given the Me Too and Time’s Up movements.
