SUPERSTORE ends its fourth season on Thursday, May 16 with a powerful two-episode block.

In the first episode, “Sandra’s Fight,” the employees debate unionizing. In the second, the comedy delivers another huge season closer.

“I had pretty much decided at the beginning of the season that we had done big, crazy climactic finales every year now, and why do we do that?” executive producer Justin Spitzer previously teased. “We write ourselves into a corner, [so I thought] we’re not going to do that this year. And then we got to there and we decided to do it again. [There is] some crazy stuff happening that will shock a lot of people.”

So what the heck is happening? Before the show’s recent Paley Center panel, series stars America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Lauren Ash, and Mark McKinney give their best teases… Read more

As SUPERSTORE’s fourth season winds down, new Cloud 9 manager Amy (America Ferrera) finds herself backed into a corner when she’s forced to cut her employees’ hours.

“She’s in a very different position now,” Ferrera shared (in the video below) prior to the show’s Paley Center panel. “She’s expected to play on corporate’s team a little bit. But also, she has more to lose. She’s now a manager with a great salary. She’s coming up in her life and her career and it feels good. All of a sudden, the stakes are higher for her. And also the responsibility to keep things afloat for everybody…a big gist of the last couple of episodes will be her navigating those sort of split loyalties.”

SUPERSTORE’s Dina (Lauren Ash) had an incredible arc in 2018, as she went from Glenn’s (Mark McKinney) professional foe to his surrogate.

Naturally, Dina evolved on-screen as she went through the process. But what Ash didn’t expect was the reaction she had while filming “Delivery Day,” the episode where her character gave birth.

SUPERSTORE‘s excellent third season made major moves on-screen and off, as several cast members took on expanded roles beyond their characters: America Ferrera (Amy) helmed her second episode of the series; Ben Feldman (Jonah) made his directorial debut; and Lauren Ash (Dina) wrote her first installment of the NBC comedy, “Gender Reveal.”

Ash—whose Dina was at the center of the episode’s botched gender reveal—looks back at penning her first episode for SUPERSTORE, and how her own background as a writer/improv performer assisted the process.

Attention, Cloud 9 shoppers (um, viewers): Thursday’s SUPERSTORE finale is nearly here, and major things are going down.

“A big town hall is happening,” SUPERSTORE creator Justin Spitzer previews of the episode titled, appropriately, “Town Hall.” “We finally meet the CEO [played by Brian Howe] who is coming to the store.”

While initially there is excitement (at least from Glenn and Dina) about their store hosting the important meeting, things quickly take a turn. “The group realizes that they can’t talk about everything—certain topics are off-limits, including Myrtle,” Spitzer teases. “They start to learn that Myrtle was fired [for questionable reasons]. So it’s our group using the opportunity to see if they can get her job back.”

SUPERSTORE, one of the best comedies currently on television, threw grenades into multiple relationships in last week’s episode.

In “Safety Training,” Amy’s (America Ferrera) attempt to befriend Kelly (Kelly Stables)—AKA Jonah’s (Ben Feldman) new girlfriend—backfired when she took credit for Kelly improperly hanging signs and was forced into safety training. To get Amy out of it, Dina (Lauren Ash) planned on playing footage of Kelly’s work mistake…and instead played a mishmash of footage which included Amy and Jonah’s kiss during last season’s tornado.

Meanwhile, Mateo (Nico Santos) was injured by a falling sign, which helped out. After he kept turning down corporate’s offer for injury compensation, finally Jeff (Michael Bunin), his ex/the store’s distract manager, insisted on giving him money. But Mateo finally admitted he was undocumented and his inability to share that with Jeff was the real reason they broke up.

So where does the show go next? SUPERSTORE creator Justin Spitzer shared a few teases about what’s in store. Read more
