With 11 episodes left to go in the show's current season, viewers of NBC's Superstore learned on Thursday that the sitcom won't be opening its doors for a seventh season. "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," said executive producers Justin Spitzer, Gabe Miller, and Jonathan Green. "We're thankful most of all to the viewers who've stuck with us for the past six years (or discovered us somewhere along the way). We'll do our best to go out strong and give you the satisfying ending you deserve." Though the America Ferrera-starring series (until this season's second episode) is ending its run after six seasons and 113 episodes, Spitzer, Miller, and Green's new overall deals with UTV last year will continue the trio's work with the studio.
"'Superstore'…has never failed to make us laugh while also thoughtfully examining important issues people care deeply about," said Lisa Katz, NBC president of scripted content. "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." Produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Spitzer Holding Company, Miller Green Broadcasting, and The District, the series is set to return for its final run on Thursday, January 14.
"We are incredibly proud of this show and the stories we were able to tell within the walls of Cloud 9," said Universal Television president Erin Underhill. "We want to thank Justin Spitzer, who created this show, current showrunners Jonathan Green and Gabe Miller, all the writers, cast and crew. Not only did they bring us a comedy full of heart and humor, but 'Superstore' also became one of the most socially impactful series on television."
