Superior Donuts is a comedy about the owner of a small donut shop that’s located in a quickly gentrifying Chicago neighborhood. Arthur is a gruff, to the point Chicagoan who refuses to sell newfangled cronuts and macchiatos or renovate his dated shop that hasn’t changed since it opened in 1969. That all changes when enterprising go-getter Franco fast talks his way into Arthur’s life as his new employee, and convinces him that he can bring the shop - and Arthur - into the 21st century.
When Maya momentarily leaves her open laptop unattended, the gang discovers she's been studying them all year for her dissertation. Also, Franco and Randy become determined to learn the truth about where a tight-lipped Arthur really spends each Sunda
CBS announced today that Superior Donuts has been renewed for a second season. The freshman comedy, which premiered last month as a midseason entry, has been a solid addition to the network's Monday night lineup through its first eight episodes.
Superior Donuts stars Judd Hirsch as an old-school owner of a Chicago donut shop that hasn't changed since it first opened in 1969. And as his shop has stayed frozen in time, the neighborhood around it is changing. But now starting to fall on hard times, he starts to let his enterprising young employee help bring his business into the 21st century.
Look for the show to return in the 2017-2018 season, though it is not clear yet if CBS will keep it as a midseason entry or move it to its regular fall lineup.
