Superstore renewed for a 22-episode fourth season by NBC
Attention Cloud 9 shoppers! NBC has renewed Superstore for a fourth season consisting of 22 episodes. The announcement was made by Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, and Tracey Pakosta, Co-President, Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment.
“Superstore is one of our signature NBC comedies, and we’re so pleased to be bringing it back for the 2018-19 season,” Salke said.
Pakosta said, “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.”
In season 3, Superstore was NBC’s #1 comedy across digital platforms in 2017, including the NBC app, Hulu and VOD.
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.
