SUPERSTORE pulled off one of the biggest—and most heartbreaking—shocks of the season, as Mateo (Nico Santos), who is undocumented, was taken by ICE at the end of the finale.

“They told me that’s where the finale was going to go, and then they assured me, ‘Don’t worry, you’re not being written off the show,'” Santos told reporters in the video below. “Even though I knew that’s where the finale was going to go, it was such a difficult script to get through…it was so triggering.”

When it came to film the episode, “there were cameras all around us, but just seeing a bunch of huge guys dressed as ICE agents descend upon you…there were a lot of moments in that episode that were difficult to get through,” he says. “It was such a profound week of filming,”
