America Ferrera Will Return for 'Superstore' Season 6 Premiere After Her Farewell Was Cut Short

The season five finale of Superstore aired tonight and this season was supposed to feature the farewell of America Ferrera‘s character Amy.

America, who is pregnant with her second child, made the decision earlier this year to leave the show, but now she will return for one more episode in season six amid the abrupt end to the season.

The final episode of Superstore‘s season was not filmed because of production shutdowns due to the ongoing health crisis. Showrunner Jonathan Green has said that America has agreed to return for the season six premiere to wrap up her character’s farewell.

“That was a pretty immediate decision. As soon as it became clear that we weren’t going to be able to shoot [it as] the finale, she said, ‘I need to come back for the first episode.’ Obviously we were glad to hear that… It just wouldn’t feel right to send her off without a proper farewell episode,” Jonathan told TV Line.
