In early December 2020, it was announced that Superstore would not be getting renewed and would be closing up shop after Season 6. Both cast and fans of the show were devastated. “We’re grateful to Universal Television and NBC for letting us make 113 episodes of a show we’re so proud of, and for giving us the chance to work with such an incredibly talented group of actors, writers and crew,” executive producers Justin Spitzer, Gabe Miller, and Jonathan Green said.
America Ferrera's character Amy had already left the show but fans have been holding out hope that she'd make a comeback. Thanks to some encouraging words from America herself, it looked more and more like that would be the case.
"As I start the next chapter for my family and career, I wish only the best, and much continued success, to my beloved Superstore family," she wrote on Instagram. So, will she make her way back to the show?
Is America Ferrera coming back to 'Superstore'?
Great news for Superstore fans: America will be reprising her role as Amy for the very last episode of the series. The news is even better knowing that America herself said she hoped she'd be back.
"I'm so grateful. Thank you, all of you, and I hope to be back and to get to see you before it's all done," she stated in a video posted by NBC. Executive producer Jonathan Green also teased her return at the time of her departure, saying that seeing her again would be "a possibility for the future."
It's likely that Amy and Jonah (Ben Feldman) will have a sweet reunion. The two broke up before Amy moved out to California on her own to start a new chapter in her career, but there's clearly so much closure needed between them. "They're not completely shutting that door forever because so much of it is about the timing of where they are and what they want, and how certain they are," Jonathan told TV Insider.
America has been keeping busy since leaving Superstore. She recently posted an Instagram Story that showed her on the set for Gentefied's second season.
When is the last episode of 'Superstore?'
It's no secret that everyone wants America back on Superstore. The show just hasn't been the same without her.
NBCUniversal president of scripted content Lisa Katz said in a statement, “Superstore has always been a signature NBC series that has never failed to make us laugh while also thoughtfully examining important issues people care deeply about. This has been an amazing group of writers, producers, actors and crew to work with and we are incredibly grateful for all their contributions. This show will forever hold its place among the top workplace comedies for which we have a cherished history.”
Superstore's two-part final episode of the series, which will see America's anticipated return, airs on March 25, 2021 at 8 p.m. ET.
