"Fresh Off the Boat"
Season Premiere Tuesday, October 3 at 8:30 PM ET/PT on ABC

          In the season premiere, “B as in Best Friends,” still homeless, the Huangs move in with Honey and Marvin. Jessica’s dreams come true when she gets a chance to compete on “Wheel of Fortune” during Best Friends Week with Honey. Eddie starts high school and is still on the outs with his pals but finds unexpected sympathy from Nicole. Michael Bolton offers to step in at the restaurant to give Louis more time with his family, but does he have an ulterior motive? 

          Inspired by a true story, “Fresh Off the Boat” stars Randall Park as Louis, Constance Wu as Jessica, Hudson Yang as Eddie, Forrest Wheeler as Emery, Ian Chen as Evan, Lucille Soong as Grandma Huang, Chelsey Crisp as Honey and Ray Wise as Marvin.

 

          Pat Sajak, Vanna White and Michael Bolton all appear as themselves. Also guest starring are Chris Elliott as Adam, Luna Blaise as Nicole, Prophet Bolden as Walter, Trevor Larcom as Trent, Dash Williams as Brian, Evan Hannemann as Barefoot Dave, Noel Gugliemi as Hector and Jim Bentley as Murray.

          Set in the ‘90s, hip-hop loving teenager Eddie Huang and his family have lived in Orlando for a few years now and are assimilating nicely into the suburban American lifestyle. Cultural differences still present everyday challenges, but close friends, neighbors and business partners are there to help them navigate the complexities of raising a family of future Millenials.
