America Ferrera to Return For the Superstore Series Finale
With only four episodes left to go before Superstore concludes its six-season run, Variety brings word that Golden Globe and Emmy winner America Ferrera is officially returning to reprise her role as Amy in the upcoming series finale of NBC’s workplace comedy series. The Superstore series finale will be titled as “All Sales Final,” is scheduled to air on March 25.
Ferrara had announced her sudden exit from the series earlier last year following the sixth season renewal. Due to the delays caused by the ongoing pandemic, her farewell episode was moved to the first two episodes of Season 6 because the fifth season was cut short. However, it remains unclear if her character’s exit factored into the network’s decision to ultimately end the series or not.
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.
Superstore was created and written by Justin Spitzer, who also serves as an executive producer with director Ruben Fleischer, David Bernad, and Gabe Miller & Jonathan Green. Superstore is produced by Universal Television, Spitzer Holding Company, and The District.
