“Superstore” was a show on the bubble before NBC decided to bring it back for Season 4.
Fans of Dina and the Cloud 9 gang are on cloud nine over that call — and those who enjoy the Lauren Ash character’s eccentricities ought to be flying high about one particular upcoming half-hour.
Her fellow star Mark McKinney — who plays the big box store’s big boss, Glenn — told TV critics on Tuesday that viewers will “finally get to meet Dina’s birds” this season in an episode he’s directing.
“Fans are super-invested in our backstories and our lives,” Ash added at the Television Critics Association press tour.
Since Season 1, “Superstore” fans have been very aware of Dina’s avian aficionado status. The Cloud 9 assistant manager has several birds she treats like her own children, actually referring to herself as their “mommy” and taking the time to sing them to sleep over the phone when she’s away from her babies (and on the clock).
Dina also keeps an eye on the birdies via webcam and is a vegan because of her love for the animals. Yeah, Dina is a unique individual.
“Superstore” returns to NBC on March 7 at 8/7c.
