Then there were… Lots of Cloud 9 employees, but on Thursday the superstore bid farewell to Amy. (America Ferrera) as she moved to California without Jonah. (Ben Feldman) to start the next adventure. Once she goes, the store is left in Glenn (Mark McKinney) hands as he becomes manager again and must guide his team through these crazy times.EW spoke to Superstore show runners Jonathan Green and Gabe Miller about incorporating COVID-19 into the season, Amy's exit, and what to come next.ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Starts from last week's episode. What was behind the decision to make the first time capsule episode of COVID-19 before entering Amy's exit?

JONATHAN GREEN: There are a lot of things that we would like to slotxo talk about in the early stages of the epidemic and at different stages. As we talk about it in the Zoom writer's room, there are a lot of things about the early days that we think will be funny. There are several versions we talk about, where “Okay, the first three episodes are going to get us through the early stages of the epidemic, then are we going to jump over time before Episode IV?” We then realized that this outbreak was going to happen for a while. We can wake up in real time and highlight the fog of those early months in one episode by crossing time.America was originally supposed to leave last season. She then agreed to return for the premiere. How did you manage to get her to be in the second round?

GABE MILLER: We originally thought we could have only one of her, so we tried to figure out how to do what we wanted to do in the early days of the outbreak, but it was Amy's goodbye with satisfaction. It felt like we weren't doing justice to any one person, so we had the idea of separating them into two different episodes and, fortunately, America could and care about.Green: We don't know how easy the question will be because she was supposed to do it with us last season. Despite having her one time, we were excited to have her back at the premiere. But the moment we asked her on the boat and understood the idea behind it. Part of it, I think, is that she will also be a part of episode 100, which is a true success of the show. We are thrilled to have her back and be part of that.With an outfit of this size, not everyone can say goodbye one-on-one. How do you decide which character like Glenn has had even bigger moments?

Miller: There's been a lot of talk about that. Given Glenn's almost paternity relationship with Amy over the years, we feel like we owe them to more important scenes ourselves. It's difficult because we want everyone to have a moment. But we have a great band, and that's one of the things that gets us to goodbye video as a device because it gives some goodbyes to iteration.GREEN: Yeah, we didn't want to have both when someone approached her and said goodbye with tears. We need those moments when we have to come. I think [Glenn-Amy] 's sweet relationship is why we want our own moments with them.Dina [Lauren Ash] had tears in my eyes.Miller: Yeah, it's really interesting to watch how their relationship grows over the years. It's great that Amy has found a surprising side of Dina that you don't necessarily expect when you see this character. It's nice to give them a special last moment.

Let's talk about Jonah-Amy's breakup, is that something given to all of you, or is there a world that they've tried long distance from?Green: It's something we talked about. When we understand how it will turn out and what we will do with it, it feels like not only But it might feel like a little trick we're playing with the audience - ”She's on the other side. Phone to talk to Jonah ”- but it felt the same that it would block Jonah's entire side. We probably won't be able to do anything with Jonah in his romantic life. Not that we get into that right away, of course, he was hurt by the breakup, and it would take a while before he could go on a date again. But it doesn't seem to show the best that he'll still be dating her for a long time - the distance is something we consider and talk a lot.Now that you're all into the next episode, what would Superstore be without Amy? Is it different to write?

Green: We have big bands with so many talents that they don't miss a beat. This gives us the opportunity to explore more characters and go deep with them. Amy is the center of the show and she can respond to the madness that revolves around her. Jonah is often in that role with her, and he remains in that role as our more basic character. It's definitely an adaptation for the acting world. The character still thinks what life would be like without her.When it comes to other characters, what can we expect from those stories this season?Miller: With Sandra [Kaliko Kawahi], we're going to explore her as a mother this season because she goes through the adoption process, so we'll get to see a new side of Sandra. 

It was fun to write and get in GREEN: We'll see Dina and Garrett's [Colton Dunn] relationship slightly awakened.Miller: Even though she's still with the veterinarian.GREEN: Yeah, it's a little complicated. Carol [Irene White] didn't create drama for the shop. She will have new ways to complicate people.Miller: And Glenn is back as a manager, and Dina doesn't need to get excited about it, and she'll try to assert herself in a different way and it will usher in a new era of the store in terms of. ManageAnd now that we've been following up until now, will COVID still be the same thing in the real world?Green: Yes, there will be a lot of stories where at least COVID informs new steps in the store and things like that.
