It seems that viewers have seen the last of the Cloud 9 gang from NBC’s Superstore. The series ended its run after six seasons last week, and now it appears that a potential spin-off, focusing on Bo (Johnny Pemberton) and his wife Cheyenne (Nichole Sakura), is not moving forward. The spin-off would have followed the couple as they “balance their big dreams with the harsh realities of being a blue-collar family in America.”
Prior to the airing of the series finale, Sakura said the following:
“I’ve gotten to read the pilot script, and it’s really funny. So hopefully we’ll get made and can bring back some of the Superstore cast to pop into that and still be part of this same world. I’m just remaining hopeful, but stay tuned.”
The possible spin-off was announced shortly after NBC cancelled Superstore in December. Superstore co-executive producer Bridget Kyle told Cleveland.com that NBC has now decided to pass on the spin-off.
“Unfortunately, yesterday NBC notified us that they’re not going forward with the Superstore spin-off. So, it will just have to live on in our hearts and on my hard drive.”
What do you think? Would you have watched the Bo and Cheyenne spin-off if NBC had ordered it to series? Were you sad to see Superstore end?
I read that they cancelled it mainly because America Fererra left. Even though I enjoyed her character, not having her in season 6 really wasn’t THAT much of a lack to cancel the show. I think the other characters were so developed and offered so much that when she was missing, they didn’t miss a beat. I think the show could’ve gone on without her and I wish they would’ve chose to do that. I will miss this show and this cast so much. It was my favorite, up there with modern family.
I really liked Superstore but once Bo wasn’t around I loved it & was sad to see it go. So no, I definitely am not sad the spin-off was cancelled.
Spin-off with Bo and Cheyenne was the worst idea in bad ideas.
I was heartbroken to see it end..I had no idea it was the last show til the end. Loved the cast. The last sweet show on tv!!
Super sad to see Super Store end! Such a great show! Not many like it any more.
Really sad to see this show go. Most shows nowadays are crap, recycled crap, inane game shows, recycled game shows, ‘reality’ shows, or a combo of the foregoing. This one was original, funny, and one that resonated deeply with me, going back to my years in retail while in college. It truly showed a day in the life of retail workers that many cannot appreciate; maybe that was the problem. My only beef was their bend toward PC BS over the last couple of seasons. The ‘big three’ have pretty much given me nothing worth watching over the past few… Read more »
They should have done a spin off for superstore personally. At least they tied up loose ends in the finale.
I think a spin-off based on the warehouse would have been good with a couple new characters
Also sad spinoff 86. Sweet finale although Elias is still at large …
Love to see Spin off
While I’m sad Superstore ended, it could’ve easily gone on another two more seasons, I think this was the right move. The characters Cheyenne and Bo were funny and quirky during their scenes together, but not enough to make a show out of them. Cheyenne was too simple – not enough depth for her own TV show, nor Bo. If we pin them together in a show, we still don’t have enough depth. I agree with the comments below that the show worked well because all characters came together and created a worthy group of people worth watching. Together they… Read more »
Superstore worked because you had the ensemble cast, set in that specific workplace. I don’t think any of the characters would be strong enough to carry a spin off on their own. So probably good that they pulled the plug on this idea pre-emptively.
Super store is my favorite show. It was funny, heartfelt and some how brutally honest. I’m so sad it ended. It felt like a show that truly could have naturally gone on forever. I cried for the finale. I am happy the writers gave every character a good ending though.
Absolutely not. Bo is just abrasive & Cheyenne was just too vacant. Thank you for not spending money & time on this concept.
