After 113 episodes, NBC’s critically-acclaimed comedy Superstore will be concluding at the end of its current sixth season.
Through its own comedic lens, the series has consistently examined many of the country’s most topical issues, including health care, immigration, unionization, the plight of the retail worker and many more.
Superstore, which reached more than 37 million viewers last season, has consistently been one of NBC‘s strongest comedies.
Following the winter hiatus, Superstore returns to the NBC lineup on Thursday, Jan. 14 at 8:30 p.m. There are currently 11 more episodes to air this season, which will end in the spring.
“Superstore has always been a signature NBC series that has never failed to make us laugh while also thoughtfully examining important issues people care deeply about,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content.
“This has been an amazing group of writers, producers, actors and crew to work with and we are incredibly grateful for all their contributions. This show will forever hold its place among the top workplace comedies for which we have a cherished history.”
“We are incredibly proud of this show and the stories we were able to tell within the walls of Cloud 9,” added Universal Television President Erin Underhill.
“We want to thank Justin Spitzer, who created this show, current showrunners Jonathan Green and Gabe Miller, all the writers, cast and crew. Not only did they bring us a comedy full of heart and humor, but Superstore also became one of the most socially impactful series on television.”
“We’re grateful to Universal Television and NBC for letting us make 113 episodes of a show we’re so proud of, and for giving us the chance to work with such an incredibly talented group of actors, writers and crew,” commented executive producers Justin Spitzer, Gabe Miller and Jonathan Green.
“We’re thankful most of all to the viewers who’ve stuck with us for the past six years (or discovered us somewhere along the way). We’ll do our best to go out strong and give you the satisfying ending you deserve.”
Superstore is a hilarious workplace comedy about a unique family of employees at big box megastore Cloud 9. At the center is Jonah (Ben Feldman), a passionate optimist always looking out for his co-workers, including the sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn), the sweet and fun-loving Cheyenne (Nichole Sakura) and the perpetually dismissed Sandra (Kaliko Kauahi).
Back in the manager job is Glenn (Mark McKinney), who once again finds himself butting heads with aggressive assistant manager Dina (Lauren Ash), but is now assisted by Mateo (Nico Santos), who’s pretty sure he would be running things by now if it weren’t for his undocumented status.
America Ferrera, who played Amy on the show and served as an executive producer, left Superstore after the fifth season.
From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless seasonal hires, together the employees continue to tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters and riot-causing sales, as well as the varied complex issues facing the American working class today… including doing their jobs in a pandemic and being deemed “essential” when they’re not exactly treated that way.
Executive producers Justin Spitzer, Gabe Miller and Jonathan Green last year renewed their overall deals with Universal Television. Spitzer is continuing with his relationship with NBC with his pilot American Auto. Executive producers David Bernad and Ruben Fleischer currently serve as EP’s on UTV’s The Bold Type on Freeform.
Superstore is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Spitzer Holding Company, Miller Green Broadcasting and The District.
