Constance Wu Becomes Meme for New, Returning Series Celebrations

The second Friday in May is typically Red Wedding-level event for broadcast TV shows on the bubble. It was no different this year, with nearly a dozen series getting canceled.

And per usual, stars and producers of those shows took to social media to express their disappointment at the cancellations and gratitude to fans of their shows.

What was different was that in the wake of Fresh Off the Boat star Constance Wu seemingly expressing anger at her ABC comedy's renewal, several actors and creators riffed on her initial Twitter reaction — "Fucking hell" — after their series were renewed or picked up.

Wu later explained she was upset that she'd have to give up another project, but the since-deleted initial tweet is reaching meme status.

For instance, The Orville creator and star Seth MacFarlane, which is getting a third season on Fox:

Sam Lerner of The Goldbergs, which was renewed for season seven:

Allison Tolman, starring in drama Emergence, which was piloted at NBC but will air on ABC:

And Joel Kim Booster of NBC's new comedy Sunnyside:

Of course, it's not all jokes. Scott Foley, who starred in ABC's canceled Whiskey Cavalier, and wife Marika Dominczyk (who guest-starred on the show), shared a heartfelt video after hearing the news:

Speechless stars Minnie Driver and Micah Fowler thanked those who watched their ABC show for three years:
