‘One Day at a Time’ Gets Fourth Season at Pop TV Following Netflix Cancellation

The Wrap Thursday, 27 June 2019
‘One Day at a Time’ Gets Fourth Season at Pop TV Following Netflix Cancellation“One Day at a Time” has a new home.

Pop TV has picked up a 13-episode fourth season of the Norman Lear sitcom reboot after a lengthy fan campaign to save the show. The new season will debut in 2020 on Pop TV, with a subsequent run on sister network CBS.

Netflix axed “One Day at a Time” earlier this year, citing low viewership numbers for the critically acclaimed sitcom. Fans soon rallied around the program on social media as producers at Sony Pictures Television said they were exploring other options for the show, using hashtags like #SaveODAAT to call on a new network or streaming service to pick up the show.

“How amazing it is to be involved with this brilliant and culturally significant series that deals with important themes one minute while making you laugh the next,” Pop TV president Brad Schwartz said in a statement. “If ‘Schitt’s Creek’ has taught us anything, it’s that love and kindness always wins. Pop is now the home to two of the most critically praised and fan-adored comedies in all of television, bringing even more premium content to basic cable. We couldn’t be more proud to continue telling heartwarming stories of love, inclusion, acceptance and diversity that pull on your emotions while putting a smile on your face.”

The multi-camera comedy, a reboot of Norman Lear’s 1975 series of the same name, stars Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz as a Cuban-American family navigating the ups and downs of life. Todd Grinnell and Stephen Tobolowsky also star.

Sony was said to have held a number of conversations to revive the show, including an offer from CBS All Access, though a stipulation in the original agreement with Netflix gave the company the power to block the show from appearing on other streaming services for a set period following cancellation.

“Three months ago, I was heartbroken with the news of our beloved ‘One Day At A Time’s’ cancellation. Today, I’m overwhelmed with joy to know the Alvarez family will live on,” said Lear, who serves as an executive producer on the reboot. “Thank you to my producing partner, Brent Miller, our incredibly talented co-showrunners, Mike Royce and Gloria Calderón Kellett, and of course, Sony, for never once giving up on the show, our actors or the possibility that a cable network could finally save a cancelled series that originated on a streaming service.  And one last thank you to, Pop, for having the guts to be that first cable network.  Even this I get to experience – at 96.”

“We are thrilled beyond belief to be making more One Day At A Time,” added co-showrunners Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce. “This show has meant so much to so many, and we can’t wait to dive in with our amazing new partners Pop and CBS. And we’d especially like to thank all of the fans for their undying support, helping us turn #SaveODAAT into #MoreODAAT.”

“We are so honored to be associated with this exceptional series,” said Jeff Frost, Sony Pictures Television president. “It means so much to so many people.  We were never willing to accept that the story of the Alvarez family might not continue and we undertook every effort to ensure that did not occur.  We are so grateful to our new partners at Pop and CBS for believing in this series and working with us to bring it back.  We are overjoyed to continue to work with the brilliant team of Gloria, Mike, Norman and Brent as well as this brilliantly talented cast.”
