ABC has renewed “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Speechless” for new seasons.

“Fresh Off the Boat” will return for Season 4 and “Speechless” will return for Season 2.

“Fresh Off the Boat” is based on Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name and follows an immigrant family living in Florida. Costance Wu and Randall Park star.

“Speechless” stars Minnie Driver as a wife and mother who is fiercely protective of her husband, Jimmy, and their three children, Ray, Dylan, and J.J. — who has a condition that leaves him with unique mobility and communication challenges.

The news comes ahead of ABC’s upfront presentation to advertisers in New York next week.

The network has also renewed “Black-ish,” “Agents of Shield,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Designated Survivor” and “American Housewife.” Previously, it had given a two-season extension to “Modern Family” and to “The Goldbergs.”

In a busy week of renewals and cancellations, ABC gave the axe to “The Real O’Neals,” “The Catch,” “Imaginary Mary,” “Secrets and Lies,” “Dr. Ken” and “American Crime.” Previously, the network canceled the Tim Allen sitcom “Last Man Standing” after six seasons.

Joining the network will be new series additions, “The Good Doctor” and the Zach Braff sitcom formerly known as “StartUp,” with many other pilots still awaiting their fates.
