UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Sept. 24 (UPI) — NBC says it has ordered nine more episodes of “Superstore,” bringing the Season 2 total to 22.

The announcement was made Friday by Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment.

Starring America Ferrera and Ben Feldman, the single-camera comedy follows a group of employees who work at a Missouri big-box store. It co-stars Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Nichole Bloom and Mark McKinney

“We’re very proud of ‘Superstore’ and we were so happy to see fantastic viewing levels with the preview during the Olympics as well as last night’s ratings in its new Thursday anchor time period,” Salke said in a statement.

“This is a show our audience loves and, paired with ‘The Good Place,’ which our audience also loves, we think we have a sensational new comedy block to build this season.”
