NBC has decided it likes being on Cloud 9: The network has renewed its comedy “Superstore” for a second season.
The pickup comes the day after the show finished its 11-episode first season. After getting a solid debut behind “The Voice” in November, the show has put up decent ratings in its regular Monday home. “Superstore” averaged a 1.55 same-day rating in adults 18-49, which makes it the No. 2 freshman comedy of the season (behind CBS’ “Life in Pieces”).
In Live +7 ratings, the show scores a 2.1 in adults 18-49, making it NBC’s highest-rated first-year comedy in two years.
“We’re thrilled to renew a show that’s incredibly funny and relatable, full of great characters brought to life by this incredible cast, writers and producers,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke says in a statement. “After such a successful first season, we look forward to seeing more of the wonderful America Ferrera, Ben Feldman and the rest of this hilarious cast in Season 2.”
“Superstore” joins these shows — including several of its NBC brethren — that have been renewed for 2016-17 and beyond.
