American Auto, the workplace comedy from the creator of Superstore, is back with another season. This time around, the C-Suite is dealing with potential layoffs and workplace hijinks.

I talked to Michael B. Washington, who plays Cyrus, X Mayo, who plays Dori, and Tye White, who plays Jack, about the show feeling more comfortable with their characters in season 2, tackling social issues, and being Black in a mainstream comedy.

American Auto is Tuesday on NBC.
