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.
