Multi-camera comedy series One Day at a Time has been renewed for Season 3 by Netflix. The 13-episode third season of the show, a reimagining of the iconic Norman Lear sitcom, will debut in 2019. Sony Pictures TV is producing for Netflix.
There has been a grassroots movement calling upon Netflix to renew One Day at a Time, about a Cuban-American family including the National Hispanic Media Coalition, which 10 days ago issued an open letter urging the streaming network to renew the sitcom. The NHMC called the show “a guiding light – the true north in and for an industry grappling with issues of diversity, equity, and inclusivity.”
While it seemed like Netflix’s renewal decision on One Day at a Time was delayed this year, it came in exactly three months after Season 2 was released (Jan. 26, 2018). Last year, the Season 2 renewal came just 2 days earlier (March 4, 2017 vs. Jan. 6 Season 1 debut).
One Day at a Time follows three generations of a Cuban-American family sometimes-reluctantly cohabitating and navigating the ups and downs of life. A newly-single mom and military veteran journeys through the triumphs and tribulations that come with raising two strong-willed, mega-millennial children, all the while enlisting the “help” of her old-school mother and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidante.
Returning cast includes Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Todd Grinnell, Stephen Toblowsky, Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz.
Lear executive produces with co-creators/co-showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, Michael Garcia and Brent Miller.
