Netflix Cancels One Day at a Time After Three Seasons

Netflix Cancels One Day at a Time After Three Seasons”

The modern-day remake of the beloved Norman Lear comedy followed a Cuban-American family led by a divorced, former military mom (Justina Machado), who was raising two teenagers - Elena (Isabella Gomez) and Alex (Marcel Ruiz) - with the help of her traditional Cuban mother Lydia (EGOT victor Rita Moreno).

"One Day at a Time" remained a critical darling throughout its entire 3-season run, but as is the case with all shows that air on Netflix, its viewership statistics were kept under wraps. "Is there really so little room in business for love and laughter?", he asked.

Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time on Thursday, announcing the decision on Twitter. A newly-single mom and military veteran (Justina Machado) journeys through the triumphs and tribulations that come with raising two strong-willed, mega-millennial children (Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz), all the while enlisting the "help" of her old-school mother (Rita Moreno) and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidante (Todd Grinnell).

Lear was among the Netflix series' executive producers.

A reboot of the popular '70s sitcom, Netflix's One Day at a Time has been praised for not only its humor and witty writing, but for also tackling a variety of serious subjects including depression, sexual abuse, addiction, and coming out as queer.

'Maybe, just maybe, if you guys had promoted this as much as you do with other shows, it would've done better. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming service has cancelled the TV show after three seasons. Thank you to our writers & crew & guest cast.

'This was a very hard decision and we're thankful to all the fans who've supported the series, our partners at Sony, and all the critics who embraced it. "The outpouring of love for this show is a firm reminder to us that we must continue finding ways to tell these stories".
