The season premiere is titled “Strike.” Amy and Jonah make things worse when they try to negotiate with corporate. After a group of Cloud 9 employees walk out to protest Glenn’s (Mark McKenney) firing in last season's finale, Amy (America Ferrera) convinces her co-workers to turn the walkout into a full-fledged strike. Jonah (Ben Feldman) tries to make the most of his one year of business school by joining Amy in negotiating with corporate.
Almost immediately the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos) regrets going on strike and sneaks back into the store to impress Jeff (recurring guest star Michael Bunin), the district manager corporate sent to manage the store during the crisis. Dina (Lauren Ash) is also determined to impress Jeff as she's trying to be renamed assistant manager, and Garrett (Colton Dunn) meets a beautiful woman on the picket line who proves too good to be true. Nichole Bloom also stars.
America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”) and Ben Feldman (“Mad Men,” “A to Z”) star in this hilarious workplace comedy about a unique family of employees at a super-sized megastore. “Superstore” centers around Amy (Ferrera), the store’s most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together, and newly hired Jonah (Feldman), a dreamer determined to prove work doesn’t have to be boring. Their fellow associates include the sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn, “Key and Peele”), the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos, “Mulaney”) and the sweet teenager, Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom, “Shameless”). Overseeing the store is Glenn (Mark McKinney, “Kids in the Hall”), the store’s affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash, “Super Fun Night”), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron-fist.
From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions.
