“Superstore” will stay open for another season
NBC renewed the workplace comedy Monday night, just ahead of its midseason return on Thursday. The series, which is both written and created by Justin Spitzer, follows Amy (America Ferrera), a diligent employee at the titular “Cloud 9” superstore, as she attempts to navigate the everyday chaos of her mundane workplace.
Ferrera is joined by co-stars Ben Feldman, Mark McKinney, Lauren Ashe, Nico Santos, and Nichole Bloom. Chrissy Metz of “This Is Us” is set to guest star as a human resources representative in an upcoming episode.
Lisa Katz and Tracy Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming at NBC Entertainment, addressed the renewal: “Week after week Justin Spitzer, our amazing writers, and cast and crew masterfully deliver a comedy that not only makes us laugh but speaks to the larger issues of the day.”
“Superstore” is produced by Universal Television, and has averaged a 1.4 live + 7 rating in adults 18-49 during its 8 p.m. time slot, with 4.4 million viewers per episode.
When the series returns to conclude its fourth season, it will lead into season 2 of “A.P. Bio.” “Superstore” joins a host of other Thursday night renewals at NBC, including “Brooklyn Nine Nine,” “The Good Place,” and “Will & Grace.”
