Superstore Renewed for Season 3

Superstore fans, prepare to be transported to Cloud 9: NBC has renewed the America Ferrera-fronted comedy for a 22-episode third season.

“We are extremely proud of Superstore, which is one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television today,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, in a statement. “Through the show’s expertly drawn characters, our producers and cast do a remarkable job touching on many issues in which audiences can relate. To its credit, not only does Superstore make us laugh, but it makes us think as well.”

Season to date, Superstore has averaged a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.7 million viewers overall in Live+7 data.

The pickup comes on the heels of NBC’s renewal of fellow Thursday-night comedy The Good Place.

    Great news!

  2. kate says:

    That’s excellent, hopefully they can find something better than what Powerless is trying to be to match its spring half of the season. It is perfectly matched with its fall partner.

    I love this show! & it just dawned on me that it’s probably the most diverse cast in prime time.

    • DJ Doena says:

      I really like the show. But you do know that diversity is not a value in itself, right?

      • grazelled says:

        But at least this diverse cast is funny and I don’t event think of them as “diverse”. They’re just Amy, Jonah, Mateo, Sandra etc. who happen to work in a superstore.

      • Sam says:

        Counterpoint: Yes it is. Even if a character is not perfectly written, it’s better than nothing at all. I’m a gay man, I know of what I speak.

      • Pedro says:

        Of course it is. Unless you are White, so you are represented anywhere, anyway. But watch only Japanese TV for a year and come back to me and tell me if you won’t miss content that you can relate to your culture, heritage, and reliability.

        • DJ Doena says:

          My favourite genre is science-fiction, especially the one with aliens. My favourite Star Trek show is DS9 with a black man playing a black human and another black man playing a Klingon. Then you have a bunch of really grey guys. I also watch shows about cops, firefighters and doctors none of which I am. I can still relate to these characters… I also watch Superstore but I can only truly relate to Amy, Jonah and Garrett. I cannot really connect to Glenn or Bo even though they’re both white males.
          If I can empathize with a character it doesn’t matter what colour their skin is or how they look “down there”. If I can’t empathize it wouldn’t matter if the character would be played by my identical twin brother.

    So happy. This show is hilarious.

  5. Sarahii says:

    Yay! One of my favourites

  6. Sam says:

    Huzzah! This show is such a delight!

  7. Superwoman says:

    Loving this news..now come on NBC and give Timeless another chance

  8. peterwdawson says:

    While I’m not a fan myself I do like a lot of the actors on the show so I’ll express my gratitude that they are maintaining a steady gig.

  9. Queen of the Run-on Sentence says:

    Yesterday Lucifer got a renewal and now Superstore gets another year? I am indeed on Cloud 9 this week

  10. grazelled says:

    This show has such funny moments, great news!

  11. G. Lashock says:

    I’m disappointed that this was renewed. It is another example of a TV show having a character with a disability but not hiring an actor with a disability. I don’t think Ms. Ferrera would accept a non Hispanic actor playing a Hispanic character.

    • Pedro says:

      You are disappointed people did not lose their jobs and that people who like a show were deprived of it? Quite mean-spirited.

      Do you also think Grey’s Anatomy should only hire actual doctors?

    • mooshki says:

      I agree it’s disappointing they didn’t hire a disabled actor, but it’s extreme to wish cancellation, especially since it’s really good in other areas of diversity!

  12. Joey Padron says:

    Good news! It’s a good and funny show. Glad it’s coming back for another season.

  13. P. C. Berrier says:

    Woo! One of the best comedies on TV right now. I really appreciate the humor in an incredibly realistic setting. It brings me back to my days at Wal-Mart without me actually having to deal with Wal-Mart.

  14. mary says:

    This is such great news. I love Superstore it is one of my favorite shows guaranteed laughs.

  15. Greg Cantin says:

    Great News. Love this show.

  16. Michael says:

    Great news, this show is really funny and has a great cast

  17. Lorelei says:

    Yay! Love this show! So funny and so many good characters! Reminds me so much of The Office.

  18. Mollytanner says:

    Every episode needs to be about Sandra and Jeff’s relationship, it’s so funny when she talks about it.

  19. Gail says:

    I love the show, I wish I could work at Cloud 9, they are fun coworkers

  20. Bryan says:

    I don’t think Powerless is going to make it. Thursday’s look promising in the Fall with Superstore and the limited 10 episode run of Will and Grace maybe following it or leading in!

  21. Kevin says:

    This makes me very happy. One of the best comedies I’ve ever seen and Mark McKinney’s character makes me laugh all the time.

  22. mooshki says:

    First Lucifer, now Superstore – the TV gods are smiling upon me!

  23. retsim says:

    Good news .Smart underplayed humour at times .Great show .

  24. Keith says:

    Great news! One of the best comedies on right now.

  25. pickles says:

    I hope it picks up in the ratings. The past few episodes the ratings were down.

  26. Brigid says:

    Good to hear! I love this show along with The Good Place. Perfect Thursday line up!
