ABC has renewed two series with Asian American leads for another season.

The 1st year series Quantico starring Priyanka Chopra as an FBI recruit suspected of terrorism will get a second season.

Fresh Off the Boat starring Randall Park and Constance Wu will come back for a third season.

They are just two of the 15 shows ABC announced yesterday it had given early renewals.


Quantico is part of a new crop of shows with Asian American leads which premiered in the 2015-2016 season.

Others include Master of None starring Aziz Ansari. Netflix has already announced it too will be returning.

Into the Badlands on AMC is also expected to be renewed, although there has been no official announcement.

Dr. Ken starring Ken Jeong and Suzy Nakamura remains in limbo. It’s doing well for a Friday night show so has a better than average chance of seeing a second season.

The biggest question mark remains Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on the CW which continues to suffer from low viewership.
