America Ferrera steps behind the camera (again) for the first SUPERSTORE episode airing on Thursday, May 16 (at 8/7c; the season 4 finale airs at 8:30/7:30), and it is a little extra special for the actress-director: her former on-screen sisters guest star.

Ana Ortiz, who co-starred with Ferrera on UGLY BETTY, plays Claudia in “Sandra’s Fight,” a Cloud 9 higher up who has a big role in Store #1217’s future. MADTV’s Anjelah Johnson, who co-starred in the 2010 film OUR FAMILY WEDDING with Ferrera, guest stars as Robin, a labor organizer who talks with the employees about potentially unionizing.

“It was just so much fun to invite my sisters to come and play,” Ferrera shared, in the video below, before SUPERSTORE’s recent Paley Center panel. “They were brilliant and easy…we laughed and had so much fun.”
