That’s right, One Day At a Time is coming back for a fourth season!
Thanks to Pop TV, owned by CBS, One Day At a Time will be returning for season four with 13 episodes in 2020. After being cancelled after its three season long run on Netflix, fans were outraged and rallied for the show to be saved. Gloria Calderon Kellet, co-showrunner of ODAAT settled on Pop for the revival after considering multiple other networks.
“We are thrilled beyond belief to be making more ‘One Day At A Time,’” said co-showrunners 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.”
Following in the footsteps of Norman Lear’s 1975 series by the same name, One Day At a Time follows three generations of the Cuban-American family, the Alvarez’s. Comprised of a newly single mother and veteran (Justina Machado) , her two eccentric children (Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz), her flamboyant yet “traditional” mother (Rita Moreno), and Schnieder (Todd Grinnell), building manager and friend turned family. The series also stars Stephen Tobolowsky who plays Doctor Berkowitz the beloved quirky boss.
“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 executive producer Norman Lear in a statement. “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.”
CBS has agreed to broadcast the series later on in 2020 after its run on Pop, a nice homage to the original series that called CBS its home over 40 years ago.
