One Day At a Time Officially Cancelled After Failing to Find a New Home
Following the second cancellation of Norman Lear’s One Day At a Time reboot and the search for a potential third new home, Executive producer Gloria Calderón Kellett and co-showrunner Mike Royce took to Twitter to share the unfortunate news that the critically-acclaimed family sitcom has failed to find a new network or streamer and is officially not returning for a fifth season.
One Day At a Time, the comedy-drama inspired by Norman Lear’s 1975 series of the same name, follows the life of Penelope Alvarez, a newly single Army veteran, and her Cuban-American family, as they navigate the ups and downs of life. Now a nurse practitioner, Penelope is raising two strong-willed children. When faced with challenges, Penelope turns to her “old-school” mother Lydia, and her building manager Schneider, who has become an invaluable confidant. The series offers a contemporary take on what life looks like in both good and bad times, and how loved ones can help make it all worthwhile.
The series starred Justina Machado as Penelope Alvarez, Rita Moreno as Lydia, Todd Grinnell as Schneider, Isabella Gomez as Elena Alvarez, Marcel Ruiz as Alex Alvarez and Stephen Tobolowsky as Dr. Berkowitz.
One Day At a Time was produced by Act III Productions, Inc., Snowpants Productions and GloNation in association with Sony Pictures Television, with Norman Lear, Mike Royce, Gloria Calderón Kellett and Brent Miller serving as executive producers.
