It’s official: SUPERSTORE’s America Ferrera will appear in the first two episodes of the comedy’s upcoming sixth season.

Originally, Ferrera was set to exit at the end of season 5. But when COVID-19 stopped the show’s production before they could film the episode, the plan was for her to close out Amy’s arc with the season 6 premiere. Now, Ferrera’s goodbye will come in the show’s 100th episode.

What still remains unknown is exactly how the show writes out Amy. In the season 5 finale, she was planning on moving to California to accept a corporate job—and her live-in boyfriend, Jonah (Ben Feldman) offered to move with her. (Feldman is sticking with the show.)

We, in figuring out the best way to sort of send off Amy, and with regards to the Amy-Jonah storyline, we definitely talked a lot with both America and Ben about what made most the most sense for their characters—the journey they’ve been on in their relationship as it’s been growing,” SUPERSTORE co-showrunner Gabe Miller previously teased. “And that’s a great thing about having them both—and our whole cast at this point in the series run—they know these characters so well that they’re a great resource to have to help us.”

They know what their characters would and wouldn’t do, and how they feel about each other,” co-showrunner Jonathan Green added. “And, yeah, they were very helpful in figuring out what those final episodes should be.”

Pre-pandemic, Green said the 100th episode was still up in the air. “We know we want to do something big and you know, celebratory of the show that feels right for a hundredth episode. So I don’t think it’ll just be a normal run of the mill episode of the show. Although we think they’re all big and great. But, yeah, I think we definitely want to do something special for the hundredth episode, but we’re still waiting and seeing exactly what makes sense.”
