Netflix announced today that it will not be renewing One Day at a Time for a fourth season. “The choice did not come easy,” the streaming platform shared on their Twitter page. “We spent several weeks trying to find a way to make another season work but in the end simply not enough people watched to justify another season.”
The decision comes after fans rallied on social media to save the series from cancellation, praising how the show offered Latinx and LGBTQ+ representation, as well as addressing issues such as mental health, homophobia, racism, sexism, and addiction.
One Day at a Time premiered on the streaming platform in 2017 and was based on the 1975 series of the same name by Norman Lear. It starred Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Rita Moreno. Some of the cast responded to the cancellation on social media.
While the show has been scrapped by Netflix, there is still hope that it can find a new home and continue. ODAAT writer and producer Mike Royce said that along with SONY, the series will be looking for another partner to air the series.
To all the One Day at a Time fans, like Schneider once said, “Don’t quit before the miracle happens.”
