Fresh Off the Boat Gets a Full Season

Per Deadline, ABC has decided to order nine more episodes of sophomore comedy Fresh Off the Boat today. It was initially given 13 episodes, so this brings its total to 22. This order is unsurprising, as it has been rating well on a night that has in the past been very troublesome for ABC.

Why didn't Fresh Off the Boat get 22 episodes when it was renewed for a second season? Often, shows that premiere midseason that are renewed don't start out with full 22 episode orders in their second seasons. FOX post-apocalyptic comedy The Last Man on Earth and CW zombie-procedural iZombie have also started out their sophomore seasons with only 13 episodes, though the CW has ordered more scripts for iZombie. This does not reflect anything about the renewal of Fresh Off the Boat for a third season, but if you ask me, it is very likely.
