One Day at a Time Is Officially Done After Four Seasons 

One Day at a Time

Producers Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce announced that there would be no Hail Mary for the series that was saved from cancellation once before. 

After two cancellations despite critical acclaim and ardent love from fans, One Day at a Time is officially over. The reboot of the 1970s sitcom, which centered a Cuban-American family led by a single mom and featured a queer daughter and her nonbinary partner in this iteration, has called it quits with four seasons and 46 episodes to its name, according to a tweet from creator Gloria Calderon Kellett.

After its third season, Netflix canceled the series that starred Justina Machado as Penelope, a mom and a nurse raising her kids, Elena (Isabella Gomez) and Alex (Marcel Ruiz). Rita Moreno starred as Lydia, Penelope's mother who made dramatic entrances from her makeshift bedroom off of the living room while their neighbor Schneider (Todd Grinnell) continually, lovingly injected himself into their family. When Netflix canceled the series in 2019, fans launched a campaign, and the series was eventually saved for a fourth season by Pop TV, the network that was home to Schitt's Creek for six seasons.

It was announced earlier this season that Pop TV had canceledOne Day at a Time, but there was hope that another network would save the beloved series.

By Tuesday afternoon, Calderon Kellett and producer Mike Royce broke the news to fans on Twitter.

In his farewell to the series, Royce shouted out to Norman Lear, the creator of the original One Day at a Time, who was an executive producer on the reboot.

Last month, Calderon Kellett spoke of the multitudes of story ideas she had planned for a fifth season, especially in terms of the show's young queer character.

"We have so much more to tell, and especially with everything that's going on in this world, every day, I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, Elena would say this. Elena would say that. Elena would say this.' It's just ripe with things that this family would be talking about," she said, according to Deadline.
