Superstore is about to lose one of its team members.
Multiple outlets confirm that America Ferrera is exiting the NBC comedy series. Her exit will take place upon the conclusion of its current fifth season.
“The last five years on Superstore have been some of the most rewarding, enriching and enjoyable years of my career,” Ferrera said. “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.”
News of Ferrera’s exit follows news that the series was renewed for a sixth season.
