HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2016/8/19 – “Everybody here is hilarious,” says Superstore star Ben Feldman. “I’ve never seen a cast that gets along so well, that is so funny together, so equally a part of the moment that’s happening. It makes for easy scenes to shoot. Everything just falls into place.”
Superstore stars America Ferrera as Amy Dubanowski, a Cloud 9 store employee of ten years, and Ben Feldman as Jonah, Cloud 9’s newest associate.
“So for anyone who was watching last season, we ended with the whole staff of Cloud 9 walking out in support of Glenn,” says Superstore EP Justin Spitzer. “We didn’t want to continue that story in the Olympics episode. So the Olympics episode is a bonus, standalone episode that takes place in the world of the show at some point last season before the walkout. Cheyenne is still pregnant. The group hasn’t had this big union discussion yet.”
The Olympics episode in August was actually shot as part of last season and held for release after the Olympics. This season’s premiere is September 22nd, picking up where the story left off after the walkout in the finale.
Superstore” Season 2 premieres on Thursday, Sept. 22nd, 2016.
Season 1 of Superstore is online.
