NBC is keeping Superstore open for another year.
The network has renewed the comedy for a sixth season in 2020-21. The series is a steady performer for NBC, both on air and on digital platforms.
“We’re thrilled that Superstore continues to speak to many important and topical issues while simultaneously being hilarious,” Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents scripted programming at NBC, said Tuesday in a statement.
The Universal Television comedy is averaging 3.8 million viewers and a 1.1 rating in the key ad demographic of adults 18-49 in Nielsen’s live plus seven-day ratings. An additional four weeks of delayed viewing pushes the show up to 4.1 million viewers and 1.3 in the 18-49 demo.
NBC also says Superstore is one of its most-watched shows on digital platforms, drawing half of its 35-day demo rating off-air. It is currently tied with The Good Place as the network’s most-watched digital show this season.
