'Superstore' Writers Talk About the Other Potential Ending Ideas They Had for Series Finale

The series finale of the NBC comedy series Superstore just aired and we’re so sad that the show is over!

The finale was a two-part episode with “Perfect Store” airing at 8pm and “All Sales Final” airing at 8:30pm. The show’s original star America Ferrera, who left at the beginning of the season, returned for the finale.

SPOILER ALERT: The show had a happy ending for America‘s character Amy, who ended up with Ben Feldman‘s character Jonah.

The show’s creator Justin Spitzer and executive producers Jonathan Green and Gabe Miller, who all co-wrote the episode, opened up about the other potential ideas they had for the ending.

The Superstore execs spoke to Deadline about the finale and the other ideas they had.

“Early on, we discussed the arc of the store closing, coming to a head with all our people getting together to try to to fight the store closing –– whether they should try to buy it themselves to try to convert it to one of these models where retail workers sort of own the store like a chain of grocery stores in Florida. But it almost felt like we were getting too in the weeds about like corporate structuring, that wasn’t really what we wanted. People care about these characters and that’s sort of what we wanted, not a proxy fight,” Spitzer said.

Green added, “For a while we talked about a sequence where all the employees in the store sort of realized there were no consequences to anything that happened in the store since it was their last day. They were doing everything from telling off a customer in a way that they had always dreamed of doing, to setting up cereal dominoes throughout the entire store, or pushing all the shelves aside and turning one section into a roller rink with different wheeled store items. Sayid (Amir Korangy)was getting on the mic and testing out his stand-up act that he’d always wanted to do. There’s a whole sequence of that that ended up falling out, unfortunately. There’s such limited space. ”

Miller said, “We also had a sequence where corporate said they had to return the cleaning robot. So as a final act of rebellion they decided, because it was going to be an annoying task of packing up this robot, to program the robot to think that it was going the the garden center. In fact the coordinates were for Buenos Aires. So they set the robot free and had this bon voyage ceremony – they decorated the robot and Dina fired a shotgun. It was going to be a big group ceremony-slash-party to set the robot free.”
