Comedy shows Speechless and Fresh Off the Boat get renewed by ABC

After spending a week cancelling shows left, right and centre, ABC has finally decided to be a bit kinder and renew *some* shows for further outings.

And to that end, fans of comedies Speechless and Fresh Off the Boat can rest easily as they’ll both be back for another series.

Fresh off the Boat centres on a Taiwanese family who move from Chinatown in Washington, DC to Orlando, Florida and has been renewed for a fourth season.

It stars Randall Park, Constance Wu and Hudson Yang and has attracted huge guest stars including Busta Rhymes, Shaquille O’Neal and DMX.

Speechless will also be returning for a second season after premiering last year.

The show stars Minnie Driver as a British mother with three children who frequently moves to ensure her son JJ is given the best educational environment that works with his cerebral palsy.

ABC has also renewed plenty of other comedies including Modern Family and The Goldbergs, both of which landed a two-season renewal earlier this week, as well as American Housewife and The Middle.

On the drama side of things, Once Upon a Time will be back for a seventh season, although the renewal is bittersweet following Jennifer Morrison’s departure from the series and the fact the show won’t be bringing back Snow White, Prince Charming and Belle for the next run.

ABC has also given plenty of shows the chop too, with American Crime, Dr Ken and The Catch all having been cancelled so far.

They join the likes of Imaginary Mary, Secrets and Lies and The Real O’Neals on ABC’s cancelled list, which includes the early cancellations of Time After Time, Notorious and Conviction.
