Fresh Off The Boat sailing into cancellation after its current season

Pop open a bottle of bubbly for Constance Wu, who, now that Fresh Off The Boat is coming to an end, will no longer be burdened by her role on one of the best sitcoms of the decade. Vulture reports (and Variety confirms) that ABC will not order any more episodes following its sixth season, which began airing in September. This season’s 14th and 15th episodes will serve as the show’s last when...

Ali Wong and Randall Park on Always Be My Maybe, Bay Area hip-hop, and awkward car hook-ups

Ali Wong and Randall Park star in Netflix’s new romantic comedy Always Be My Maybe , the story of estranged childhood friends Sasha and Marcus who reluctantly reconnect after 15 years apart, and soon rediscover the spark between them.

Keanu Reeves makes a welcome cameo in Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe trailer

Keanu Reeves makes a welcome cameo in Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe trailer

The best friends-who-fall-in-love rom-com theme goes back even farther than 1989’s When Harry Met Sally (for example, 1982’s Best Friends). But the premise is about to get a welcome upgrade in the cleverly titled Netflix production Always Be My Maybe, starring Randall Park (who is also credited as co-writer) and Ali Wong. Nahnatchka Khan, an executive producer on Park’s Fresh Off...
