Who’s who in Superstore
For those who haven’t yet indulged in TV’s quirkiest form of retail therapy, here’s a run-down of Superstore’s friendly (not really) staff.
Position: Assistant manager. Superpower: Keeping customers at arms’ length by wearing a different name tag every day.
Position: Sales associate. Superpower: Having not only gone to college but also dropped out of business school.
Position: Assistant manager. Superpower: Insults.
Position: Store announcer. Superpower: Sarcasm.
Position: Associate. Superpower: Doing whatever it will take to get ahead. Really. He’ll do anything.
Position: Associate. Superpower: Coming up with the most ridiculous baby names known to humankind.
Position: Manager. Superpower: Extending his Christian values to all, even if that means buying up all the morning-after pills in the store he runs.
Season 1: Showmax and Netflix
Welcome to St Louis, Missouri, the home of mega-store Cloud 9, and also to the motley group of employees who have to get by with only their pesky customers and one another for company.
Season 2: Showmax and Netflix
Strikes, workplace accidents, selling guns, theft, food poisoning and unlikely store-floor romantic interludes – it’s all in a day’s work for the Cloud 9 crew in the second season.
Season 3: Showmax and Netflix
Cloud 9 is back after being destroyed in a tornado. It’s time to restock the superstore, only nobody told the staff the doors would be opening so soon. This season also sees that kiss between our two favourite employees.
Season 4: Showmax and Netflix
You get a baby, you get a baby and you get a baby! Cloud 9 is about to welcome not one but two staff babies this season, and on the very same day at that. Related: we are in love with Amy and Jonah this season. And, as all series addicts know, no comedy show would be complete without having every character trapped in one place as they take shelter from a freak weather incident – in this case, a snowstorm.
Season 5: Showmax
With all episodes available until 24 February 2021, DStv online is the only legal stream you’ll find of Season 5. Trust us, it’s worth it, with real-life US politics making its way into the plotline when Mateo is detained by ICE and the rest of the staff spend the season helping him to make headway in his immigration hearing. But it’s a bonanza of fun stuff, too, from weird customers and employee pranks to miserable match-making attempts and Cheyenne’s doomed 21st birthday party.
Season 6: DStv online
Bringing Covid-19 into the show, the season filmed in 2020 revolves around the store’s efforts to cope in the midst of the pandemic. Plus, it’s officially the show’s final season, and Amy and Jonah are planning a move to California. This season is still airing in the States, and the first episode landed on DStv on 3 February 2021. New episodes will land every Wednesday night, and we can’t wait to see what’s (ahem) in store for the staff of Cloud 9.
