NBC has made Superstore fans super happy by awarding the critically acclaimed comedy series a fourth season order. The network confirmed the show will return during the 2018-2019 season with 22 new episodes.
“Superstore is one of our signature NBC comedies, and we’re so pleased to be bringing it back for the 2018-19 season,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment.
“This clever comedy, featuring America Ferrera, Ben Feldman and an incredibly talented ensemble cast, is a source of pride for the comedy team at NBC and I’m personally gratified that it has connected with audiences and critics alike,” added Tracey Pakosta, Co-President, Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment.
Season three of Superstore has increased its audience over season two by 6% and has attracted more than 5.195 million total viewers. And according to the network, the series was NBC’s #1 comedy on digital platforms in 2017.
Superstore was created and written by Justin Spitzer. Spitzer is also an executive producer along with director Ruben Fleischer, David Bernad, Gabe Miller, and Jonathan Green.
The Plot: Superstore centers around Amy (America Ferrera), the store’s most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together. Jonah (Ben Feldman), who is often the target of his colleagues ribbing, is joined on the floor with his fellow associates, including sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn), the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos) and sweet teenager and new mom Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom). Overseeing the store is Glenn (Mark McKinney), the affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron fist.
From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans, to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions.
