'Fresh off the Boat' season 6 will see the Huangs preparing for the next stage of their lives with some important changes on the way
With Evan hitting puberty, Eddie preparing for adulthood, and Grandma Jenny contemplating retirement from something or the other, it looks like this season is going to be all about growing up.
The adorable cast of 'Fresh Off the Boat' has grown in our hearts and in age over the course of the show's five seasons on the air. Season 6 is going to see them growing up once again with some important changes coming to both mind and body.
That's right, the baby of the family Evan Huang (Ian Chen) is finally about to become a man. The season's first episode 'Help Unwanted?' will be dealing with the onset of Evan's puberty, a moment that is bound to cause his parents Louis Huang (Randall Park) and Jessica Huang (Constance Wu) some amount of distress. Every parent knows their kids have to grow up at some point but it's very rare that any parent finds it to be a fun experience.
Fans can expect Louis and Jessica to get a lot more sentimental and nostalgic this season, especially since their oldest kid Eddie Huang (Hudson Yang) is also going to be transitioning into a new phase of his life. The second episode of the season, 'College', is going to be dealing with Eddie trying to figure out what he wants to do after he finishes high school. He will probably be facing a lot of pressure from Louis and Jessica to pick a "good" career path, though we all know his destiny is to become a famous chef and food personality since the show is after all based on celebrity chef Eddie Huang's own childhood.
Even Grandma Jenny (Lucille Soong) is starting to feel the years getting on, which is kind of hard to believe considering what a tough old bird she is. But with the Huangs' friendly neighbor Marvin Ellis (Ray Wise) choosing to retire in Season 6's third episode, Grandma Jenny is going to be thinking of doing a bit of retiring herself, though we can't imagine what she wants to retire from. From the looks of it, this is going to be a pretty emotional season for the show though we're sure there will also be plenty of laughs along the way.
'Fresh Off the Boat' Season 6 premieres on ABC on Friday, September 27.
