‘Superstore’ Star Ben Feldman Talks Spoilers: It’s Not Like This Is ‘True Detective’ (Exclusive Video)

If “Superstore” fans are watching the show waiting for Jake and Amy to get together, star Ben Feldman says that’s overlooking what’s so special about the NBC comedy.

“Superstore” — which also stars America Ferrera, Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Nichole Bloom and Mark McKinney — is a true ensemble comedy, with every character given the chance to shine.

“I like ensemble shows,” Feldman said in an interview with TheWrap. “I wanted to be on the kind of show where I could go away for an episode and some other random character could be the only one featured, and the show would be just as watchable and fun.”

Feldman had especially kind words for co-star Nichole Bloom, who plays the pregnant teenager Cheyenne on the show. “She’s quietly insanely good,” he said. “We’re all kind of blown away with her. She does ditzy in this really subtle, unique, real way that only someone who’s secretly insanely intelligent would be able to do.”

“Superstore” returns for Season 2 on Thursday, but Feldman doesn’t have any spoilers. “It’s not like it’s ‘True Detective,'” he joked. “We’ll be in a store and hilarity will ensue.”

“It’s a second season, so you get to learn a lot more specifics about the characters,” he said. “There will be a lot more interesting combinations. I think mine and America’s character Amy, their dynamic changes a little bit.”
