The end of Superstore’s current season will also mark the end of America Ferrera’s run on the show.
Multiple outlets confirm that Ferrera is set to leave the NBC comedy series upon the conclusion of its 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.”
Superstore has already been renewed for a sixth season, which will star Ben Feldman, Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Nichole Bloom, Kaliko Kauahi and Mark McKinney.
