Chrissy Metz is taking a break from all of the family drama and trying her hand at a bit of comedy. Metz, best known for playing Kate Pearson on This Is Us, will guest-star on an upcoming episode of the NBC sitcom Superstore.
Superstore, which returns for the rest of its fourth season on Thursday, March 7, follows the quirky employees of a big box store as they deal with everything life throws at them, from relationship drama to some truly unexpected store mysteries. As for Metz, she will join the fun in the role of Luanne, who’s described as an all-business Cloud 9 Human Resources representative. Luanne is apparently sent to the store to investigate a flurry of very public, very embarrassing tweets. (And if we know Glenn, a visit from an HR rep is going to send him down a panic spiral.)
Metz’s episode is set to air in May.
Superstore returns Thursday, March 7th at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
