Superstore season 6 finale spoilers follow.
Superstore sadly came to an end last week, with fans praising its "perfect" ending.
It was revealed the show was getting cancelled at the end of its sixth season, after nine episodes had already been filmed.
It meant showrunners Jonathan Green and Gabe Miller had to do some big rewrites ready for the big finale.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, they revealed what they had planned for season 7 if it had gone ahead.
"We found out around Thanksgiving that this would be the last season," Miller said.
"We had already shot nine episodes and we were preparing for episode 10, and we had a whole different end of season, a different arc that we were setting up.
"Then when we found out, we had to think about what would be satisfying endpoints as opposed to a big reveal that brings up questions. So we had to quickly recalibrate and start brainstorming."
He continued they already had plans about what it would be like with the Cloud 9 store becoming a hybrid fulfilment store.
"The final shot of the season would've been a wall going up and dividing the store, and we were leading toward taking our co-managers and having Dina [Lauren Ash] in charge of the fulfillment center part of the store and Glenn in charge of the in-person part of the store, and dividing some of our employees and seeing what that's like in season 7," he added.
"That was already part of our plan, but we just adapted that for the series finale."
Miller continued they had more plans for the shows romances, including Dina and Garrett who were shown together in the flash forward.
"One thing we had talked about doing in season 7 was we were setting up for Dina and Garrett to be together as a couple, really embracing the fact that they were an actual romantic couple and just seeing what that looks like for the two of them," he said.
"That seemed like a fun setup for some romantic and comedic stories."
Superstore aired on NBC in the US, and season 6 will air on ITV2 later in the year in the UK. Netflix UK has the first five seasons.
