Thursday TV: ‘Superstore’ Reopens

America Ferrara’s announced farewell from “Superstore” (NBC, 8 p.m.) was supposed to happen at the end of last season, but the coronavirus precluded production of the fifth season finale. Instead, she’s apt to go after tonight’s sixth season premiere, which deals with pandemic as well. 

“Hoop Dreams” filmmaker Steve James had already deftly chronicled the nuances of the Chicago school system in his series “America to Me.” He’s back with a five part documentary about the complexities of the city in the past year with all of its challenges and its changes in city politics. The new “City So Real” (National Geographic, 7 p.m.) begins its run tonight with a commercial free showing. It becomes available on Hulu tomorrow. 

Celebrities encourage you to get to the ballot box on “Every Vote Counts: A Celebration of Democracy” (CBS, 9 p.m.). 

The third and final installment of the German spy saga now called “Deutschland 89” (Sundance, 11 p.m.) is set around the fall of the Berlin Wall. Martin Rauch, Maria Schrader and Svenja Jung star. 

What better title for an Austin-based animal rescue show than “That Animal Rescue Show” (CBS All Access, streaming)? It starts tonight, with Richard Linklater as executive producer. 

It’s unusual to find Metallica on public television — unless, of course, they team with the San Francisco Symphony which they do in this concert “Metallica: S&M 2” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings).
