Nearly a year after One Day at aTime settled in at Pop, the sitcom from Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce based on Norman Lear’s iconic original is again in search for a new network home. News about the show’s cancellation on Pop dropped Tuesday, with the stars and creators of the now ex-Netflix and ex-Pop series reacting to the news on social media.
“I’m not sad just yet, y’all. We still have some hope for new homes,” Calderón Kellett tweeted about Sony Pictures TV’s plans to shop the series to other outlets. “Hang tight, my loves. You know that if I go down, I will go down singing for this show (& cast & crew) I love.”
Also sharing optimism was fellow executive producer and co-showrunner Mike Royce, who noted that the cancellation won’t be the show’s end-all-be-all. Royce, who shared that “much has changed at Viacom in the last year,” said that he still has plans for an upcoming season.
One Day at a Time stars also aired their feelings on social media.
“Maybe third network’s the charm?” Isabella Gomez wrote on Twitter, adding crossed fingers and a nervous emoji to her post. “Seriously, regardless of what happens, familia para siempre.”

Much has changed at Viacom in the last year and unfortunately we won't be on Pop anymore. Thanks to everybody over there for the opportunity to do season 4.
And guess what? We're still trying for season 5.
