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,”

SUPERSTORE ended season 4 with its darkest twist yet, as Mateo (Nico Santos)—whose undocumented status was first brought up in the special episode, “Olympics,” prior to season 2 starting—was taken by ICE.

“Listen, I was sobbing when I read it,” Lauren Ash (Dina) admits. “America [Ferrera (Amy)] and I both burst into tears. [I thought] there’s no way they’re going to do this, there’s no way they’re going to let us do this. And then they did, which I think is awesome.” (SUPERSTORE’s Ben Feldman shared photographic proof of Ash and Ferrera’s post-reading reaction.)

Comments Off on SUPERSTORE Season 4 Finale: ‘Employee Appreciation Day’ Photos

SUPERSTORE concludes its fourth season with an unexpected finale—and that includes a familiar face popping back up.

“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.”

Check out photos from the second May 16 episode (airing at 8:30/7:30c), “Employee Appreciation Day”…
