The comedy will return in 2019.
March 26, 2018
Netflix announced today that One Day at a Time will be returning for a third season. The move follows a recent grassroots movement urging the streaming giant to bring the comedy back; an effort that included an open letter from The National Hispanic Media Coalition earlier this month that, while not receiving a direct response from Netflix, did catch the attention of series developer Gloria Calderon Kellett, who tweeted a link to the letter with words of appreciation.
The half-hour sitcom premiered in January 2017 as a remake of the classic Norman Lear series of the same name that aired for nine seasons between 1975 and 1984. Similar to the original, the updated version of One Day at a Time follows a former military veteran and single mom who is doing her best to raise her progressive teenage daughter and socially awkward tween son. The series has been positively received by both audiences and critics.
Netflix has ordered another 13 episodes for Season 3, which is on-par with its first two seasons. Look for a return in 2019.
