One of NBC’s most popular comedies is shutting down. Superstore, which premiered in 2015, will be ending after its current season sometime next year. The series is in the middle of season 6, which was delayed due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

The news comes after series star America Ferrera announced her departure last February, leaving in the current season’s second episode. According to Variety, Ferrera’s exit has left a gaping hole in the series, and the show has been struggling in ratings. Superstore is currently on its winter hiatus and will return on Thursday, January 14, for the final 11 episodes of the series, ending in the spring of 2021.

Superstore stars Ben Feldman, Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Nichole Sakura, Kaliko Kauahi, and Mark McKinney. It follows a group of employees working at “Cloud 9,” a fictional big-box store in St. Louis, Missouri. All seasons, as well as the first four episodes of season 6, are currently streaming on Hulu and Peacock.
