While its ratings weren’t very impressive, Superstore ranked as one of NBC’s highest-rated sitcoms for the 2018-19 season. How will this sitcom perform in season five? Will the numbers go up or down? Will Superstore be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A workplace comedy, Superstore stars America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Mark McKinney, Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Nichole Bloom, and Kaliko Kauahi. This NBC sitcom revolves around the diverse and unique employees at a super-sized megastore called Cloud 9. Recently promoted to store manager, Amy (Ferrera) is the glue that holds the place together while newer hire Jonah (Feldman) wants to prove that work doesn’t have to be boring. Their fellow associates at the store include sardonic Garrett (Dunn), sweet but clueless Cheyenne (Bloom), perpetually dismissed Sandra (Kauahi), former manager Glenn (McKinney), self-promoted floor supervisor Mateo (Santos), and Dina (Ash), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron fist. From bright-eyed newbies to seen-it-all veterans to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, the crew tackles the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales, and nap-worthy training sessions.
