Superstore Season 3 Confirmed
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Superstore is set to return for a 22-episode third season. “We are extremely proud of Superstore, which is one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television today,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said 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,” Salke said.
The show’s early renewal comes as no surprise as the comedy has been a solid performer. Thirteen episodes into the show’s second season, Superstore was averaging 4.3 million viewers, according to Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers. The show “lifted the network’s Thursday night 8 p.m. half-hour timeslot by 29%” as well.
The comedy also ranked as NBC’s top show during its first season run. Across Hulu, NBC.com, and on-demand, reports reveal that more than 33 million people tuned in. Interestingly, last summer’s special post-Olympic telecast raked in 9.7 million viewers, making it broadcast TV’s most-watched Friday comedy in the last 12 years.
