A comedy series that has become a fixture of NBC’s prime-time schedule will be back for a fourth season. Variety reports that the network gave an early renewal to “Superstore,” which is currently airing season three.
The renewal is for a 22-episode season, matching seasons two and three. (Season one consisted of just 11 episodes.)
In announcing the renewal, NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke commented: “‘Superstore’ is one of our signature NBC comedies, and we’re so pleased to be bringing it back for the 2018-19 season.”
The report notes that the America Ferrera-led series is currently one of the network’s top-rated comedies, averaging a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.1 million total viewers this season in Nielsen Live+Same Day ratings. The number rises to a 2.9 in the 18-49 demo when 35 days of non-linear viewership is tallied.
