ATTENTION CLOUD 9 SHOPPERS: ‘SUPERSTORE’ RENEWED FOR A FOURTH SEASON
NBC Stocks the Shelves With Another Season of Its Popular Thursday Night Comedy
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Feb. 21, 2018 — Renewal on aisle 4 … NBC’s “Superstore” is coming back for a 22-episode fourth season.
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.
Said Pakosta: “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.”
Season to date “Superstore” has grown +6% versus one year ago in adults 18-49 (1.7 rating) and +3% in total viewers (5.195 million), according to “most current” ratings averages from Nielsen Media Research. “Superstore” is also a potent performer on alternative platforms, growing to a 2.9 in 18-49 when 35 days of non-linear viewership is included in the rating. The series delivers a strong upscale audience, indexing at a 119 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes (100 represents an average concentration of those homes).
“Superstore” was NBC’s #1 comedy across digital platforms in 2017, including the NBC app, Hulu and VOD.
Variety said the third season of “Superstore” is “character-driven comedy at its best” while Entertainment Weekly added the show is “at the top of its game.” Newsweek said the NBC sitcom “quietly nails Middle America’s story every Thursday night.”
“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.
