Superstore 2

Single-camera sitcom created which follows a group of employees working at a fictional big-box store called Cloud 9 set in St. Louis, Missouri.

The series revolves around Amy (America Ferrera), the megastore's most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together, and newly hired Jonah, a naive dreamer determined to prove work doesn't have to be boring.

Their fellow associates include the sardonic Garrett, the ambitious Mateo and the sweet pregnant teenager, Cheyenne.

Overseeing them all are Glenn, the store's affable, clueless store manager, and Dina, the aggressive assistant manager who lives by a very specific code - namely the store's employee handbook.

The Season 2 premiere is a special Olympic-themed episode, in which a Cloud 9 Olympics promotion gives Amy the chance to meet her childhood hero, gold medal-winning gymnast Missy Jones, who proves to be a little too inspirational.

Meanwhile, storewide "Olympic fever" causes Glenn to have some difficulty balancing his extreme patriotism.

Also, Jonah learns a secret about Mateo's past and Dina strives to create a "closing ceremony" her colleagues will never forget.

The episode also features special appearances by Olympic gold medalists Apolo Anton Ohno, Tara Lipinski and McKayla Maroney.

Dealing with the aftermath of salacious rumours surrounding her fiancé's infidelity, she is faced with the cold truth that her happily-ever-after may be on hold until she can figure out where her relationship stands.

Back and bolder than ever... Kenya Moore has finally gotten what she's always wanted with her husband and baby Brooklyn, but a fairytale ending isn't always what it seems and despite her best efforts, her roller coaster relationship may be coming to an end.

Although motherhood has been kind to her and she enjoys embracing her softer side, she will never walk away from a challenge or shy away from speaking her mind.

In the Season 12 premiere, "The Moore the Merrier": Kenya relishes in her new role as mom to her daughter Brooklyn, while struggling to maintain her long distance marriage to Marc.
