NBC Renews Superstore for Season 4
More Superstore adventures are coming next year
The good times won’t be coming to a close on NBC’s “Superstore” this year. The network announced today that “Superstore” will definitely be coming back for a 22-episode fourth season. The confirmation was made by Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, and Tracey Pakosta, Co-President, Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. It’s not a shock that NBC renewed the series, which is NBC’s number-one comedy across digital platforms in 2017, including the NBC app, Hulu and VOD, but fans should be happy to get the confirmation.
“ ‘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 added, “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” 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.
