Series information and plot
A popular American TV sitcom, Superstore premiered in November 2016, and the second season debuted on September 22, 2016. Superstore was created and executive produced by Justin Spritzer, and produced by Spritzer Holding Company, The District and Universal Television.
Superstore is a workplace comedy set in Cloud 9, a fictional giant superstore. The diverse bunch of employees includes a pregnant woman, a paraplegic, veterans and newbies – a Latina and a gay Asian, eccentrics and familiar types. The plot in itself is nothing particularly new – the workplace rivalries, the goofing off taking place in the store, romantic involvements, the personal lives of the employees, but the genuine humor and the believable characters transform it into something more than you might imagine.
Critical reception and possibility of renewal
The series is recognized by the critics as one with an obvious potential and a talented cast, with America Ferrera being particularly praised. It has also been criticized for the plot being somewhat incoherent early in the first season, an issue that seems to have been resolved by season two. The current reviews on review aggregator websites are mixed to positive, with a 7.5/10 on IMDb and 54% on Rotten Tomatoes. The funny and relatable comedy delivered excellent ratings in season one, with an impressive average of 6.58 million viewers per episode. America Ferrera, Ben Feldman and the rest of the main cast returned to reprise their roles for season two, which contains 22 episodes and premiered to 5.45 million viewers, a 1.5 demo rating and a share of 6. The future looks bright for Superstore, so please stay tuned, and we’ll bring you the latest news from NBC.
