‘Fresh Off the Boat’ Casts ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Actor Jimmy O Yang in Season 5

“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” actress Ming-Na Wen and “Grimm” actor Reggie Lee have also been cast in recurring roles

It’s a “Crazy Rich Asians” reunion!

Jimmy O. Yang, who played the partying Bernard in this summer’s blockbuster hit “Crazy Rich Asians,” will reunite with the movie’s leading lady Constance Wu in Season 5 of “Fresh Off the Boat” in a recurring role, a rep for ABC told TheWrap on Wednesday.

“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” actress Ming-Na Wen and “Grimm” actor Reggie Lee have also been cast in recurring roles.

Wen and Lee will play the couple Elaine and Julius, and Yang will play their son Horace. Elaine is described as a Chinese-American woman whose sense of humor and ability to give advice earns her the nickname “Chinese Oprah.”

Julius is described as a Chinese-American man who loves all-American things like steak, apple pie and the Dallas Cowboys. Horace has an amazing resumé and was accepted into Harvard at only 16.

“Fresh Off the Boat” stars Constance Wu, Randall Park, Lucille Soong, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler and Ian Chen as the Huang family, who move to Orlando from Washington, D.C. in the ’90s. The series is created by Nahnatchka Khan and based on Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name.

“Fresh Off the Boat” Season 5 premieres on ABC on Oct. 5.
