Last week, Wu tweeted her disappointment of the return of the ABC sitcom, although she later posted a longer explanation.

"I did actually know that Constance had another opportunity that had "Fresh Off the Boat" not moved forward, she would have pursued", said Burke. But the network never truly considered canceling the comedy because "it's just too strong".

Wu didn't mention the show by name, but when a Twitter user offered her congrats on the show's renewal, saying it was great news, Wu replied in a now-deleted tweet that "it's not". In a lengthy message shared to Twitter, Wu said she loves the ABC comedy and that the show's renewal meant she had to give up another project she was really passionate about.

McNearney, who during the past 16 years worked her way up among the writers and producers on Kimmel's talk show (and along the way also married the host after years of working with him), talks more seriously about the impact their baby Billy's health plight had on the national conversation about health care, and why they made the decision to share it with the whole country. "F**k", Wu first wrote. I say f-- a lot. "I was disappointed in not being able to do that other project - Because that other project would have challenged me as an artist - that other project would have been really hard and not easy or pleasant at all", she wrote.

"I could see myself going, 'Okay, that's it, I'm done, ' and then going home and saying, 'What did I do?'" he elaborated. I say fuck a lot.

Constance Wu has played Jessica Huang on "Fresh Off the Boat" for five seasons.
