The workplace comedy is given five more episodes.
November 5, 2019
NBC has bumped up the length of the current fifth season of Superstore. The network has ordered an additional five episodes to bring the comedy's original count of 18 up to a total of 22 for the 2019-2020 season.
The news isn't a huge surprise, as the show has been NBC's top comedy in recent years. Since its premiere in 2015 as a mid-season replacement, the series has worked its way up to anchor the network's Thursday night lineup in the prime 8:00pm time slot.
Superstore follows the antics of a diverse group of employees at a big-box mega store. The show's sharp writing and witty humor have resonated with audiences and garnered continued acclaim from critics. New episodes are currently airing Thursday nights.

This ensemble show has never been up to the level of "The Office" or "Parks and Recreation". Sometimes it's funny with a sharp take on commercialization, but most of the time it misses.

That is wonderful news! Glad to see this show has been given more episodes for this season.

Great funny show. Never fails to make me laugh. Glad to see it still around.

Why would NBCs top comedy not have a 22 episode order from the get-go?

@Dan, portraying something is one thing. Flat out lying about what they do is something else completely. I do like how you think everyone who thinks different than you is a fascist. I'm guessing you don't even know what the definition of fascism is. Educate yourself.

Oh, boo hoo at all the fascists upset that the show thinks ICE is a terrorist organization.
I am glad it got political and if that's an issue for you, you need to rethink your life.

I could handle removing the whole illegal immigrant storyline.. but I still like the show. This news sounds more like spin... I mean 22 episodes is pretty standard for a network sitcom.. my guess is one of their other newer shows is failing miserably and they need to fill 4 seeks with a sitcom.. so they ordered 4 more episodes. "Topped up" is just spin to garner more interest in the show. Marketing ploy. Still, good show :)

I think they brought in the politics to tie in with Mateo being undocumented. They should have left it alone because it had no place in a comedy. Where can they go with it?

Show is good but it is getting too political and message driven. Go back to wacky comedy and leave the craziness to the politicians.
