One Day At a Time canceled at Netflix
Netflix has announced that the comedy One Day At a Time will not be returning for Season 4. The streamer said the difficult decision to not renew the series “did not come easily,” but the choice was made after “not enough people watched to justify another season.”
On their official Twitter account, Netflix shared the following message with the cast, crew, and fans: “Thank you, Norman Lear, for bringing this series back to television. Thank you, Gloria Calderon Kellett & Mike Royce, for always making us laugh and never shying away from bravely and beautifully tackling tough subject matter in a meaningful way. To Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Rita Moreno: thank you for inviting us into your family. You filled this show with so much heart and warmth and love, it truly felt like home. And to anyone who felt seen or represented — possibly for the first time — by ODAAT, please don’t take this as an indication your story is not important. The outpouring of love for this show is a firm reminder to us that we must continue finding ways to tell these stories.”
Executive producer Mike Royce confirmed that they’re seeking a new home for the series, saying: “Along with our studio Sony, we ill be exploring other palces One Day at a Time can live, and with any luck we’ll find one. Either way our three seasons will always exist be there for you and for us.”
