The comedy finds a new home for Season 4.
June 27, 2019
One Day at a Time is returning to television. Pop TV announced today that it has picked up a fourth season of the cancelled comedy, much to the delight of its passionate fan base who have been hoping the series might find a new home after being cancelled by Netflix earlier this year.
The series premiered in 2017 and aired three seasons on the streaming service before getting the ax in March. While Netflix rarely comments on cancellations, a public statement was issued on its official Twitter account stating, "We've made the very difficult decision not to renew One Day At A Time for a fourth season. The choice did not come easily - we spent several weeks trying to find a way to make another season work but in the end simply not enough people watched to justify another season."
Today's good news comes after a large outcry over the unexpected cancellation of the fan-favorite comedy. Almost immediately after the decision, the hashtag #SaveODAAT started popping up all over social media, becoming a worldwide trending topic on Twitter. Pop's move to save the show makes One Day at a Time the first series cancelled by Netflix to be revived by another network.
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 was positively received by both audiences and critics.
Pop has ordered 13 episodes for Season 4, which is slated to premiere sometime in 2020. It is being reported that the series will also air on CBS later that year.

Mandy nobody here hates it because of sexuality. The writers did a poor job of introducing that sexual aspect of the show. That topic was shoehorned into the series poorly. I liked the show but the way it was put it was horrible and it deserved to get canceled honestly.

Why is there so much hate for shows featuring anyone of a different race or sex than the straight white male? Are all the straight while males THAT threatened by people of color that you have to berate them and insult them? Every show I have seen insulted have been by men, get over it. If you don't like it, don't watch it, but when I see dumbass reviews like the ones on here I take them with a grain of salt.

This is very exciting. Me and my wife was crushed when the show was cancelled by Netflix. Now that Pop TV has we can continue a great show. This original was awesome! Watched it religiously and I am pleased which how this is being done. For those who are denying this show, Mackenzie Phillips is in this version. Also Rita Moreno is great! Should check it out.

Sorry Jim. This is NOT a fan page. It as a page to comment on renewals and cancellations. I'm sure there is a fan page somewhere (although maybe not, the show sucked) where you revel unfettered in the renewal. This just isn't it....

Just fyi.. according to the most recent US census, the amount of Americans which self-identify as gay or lesbian is LESS than 5%. Now even given a 2-3% margin of error.. that HARDLY makes them as prominent as television producers want Americas to believe. If you factor in another 20% for "friends and family", that means roughy 25% of the country is "touched" or interested in those issues. I'm not at all in favor of any discrimination of any sort. People should be allowed to live how they wish to live. But the reality is they are NOT "everywhere" they merely want you to *think* they are. Seems producers are okay with creating shows with an agenda that is either uninteresting, directly unsavory, or completely irrelevant to about 75% of possible viewers. But then again, I'd imagine it is those viewers in the minority that "tricked" the producers into paying for more episodes of an already failed television venture. Suckers. It's NEVER going to get "better". A failed TV show never comes back stronger or better... it merely continues it's downhill slide.

The original show was great. One of the better comedy shows of that long ago era 70's- 80"s. This was ok but considering i am not gay and yet have known many gay people , that this show havimg such a storyline is fine. Back in the days of the original tbe gays were blacklisted from tv mostly.

This show started out decent but the whole LGBTQ forced agenda into the already weak story line killed it for me. That community shines where needed but when they shoehorn that into something that didn't need it the content gets ruined. Not like this show was pure gold in season 1. Kind of surprised it got a season 2 and Season 2 is where it went downhill.

I don't know what the negative comments are all about. This show is great. If you dislike something that much, why even open the page to comment. If you don't want to watch it - don't watch it. It's a fan page. No one cares what you don't like.

ermm... shouldn't that be "Uno Day at a Time".... as bad a title as the remade show??? Seems fitting. This should never have been made.. let alone resurrected.
