America Ferrera Is Leaving 'Superstore' at the End of Season 5

America Ferrera has announced that she will be leaving the NBC comedy series Superstore at the end of the current season.

The 35-year-old actress, who is currently pregnant with her second child, has starred on the show from day one and she has also directed several episodes of the series.

“The last five years on Superstore have been some of the most rewarding, enriching and enjoyable years of my career,” America said in a statement (via THR). “Producing, directing and acting with this wonderful cast and crew has given me opportunities to grow as a person and storyteller. I’m so grateful to my partners at NBC and Universal Television for the support and belief they have always placed in the show, and I’m most thankful to the brilliant Justin Spitzer for creating the funny, smart and relevant world of Superstore and inviting me to be a part of it. As I start the next chapter for my family and career, I wish only the best, and much continued success, to my beloved Superstore family.”

America is an executive producer on the new Netflix series Gentefied, which debuted last week.

The season five finale of Superstore will air on April 16.
