Netflix announced that they are cancelling the sitcom, “One Day at a Time,” after three seasons. The remake starring Rita Moreno and Justina Machado, followed a divorced woman raising her two teenaged children, while living with her mother, played by Moreno.
Co-creator Mike Royce took to Twitter to share the sad news.
“Last night, Netflix told us they are cancelling One Day at a Time,” he began the note. “We had the time of our lives making this show. We worked with the best, most giving and talented cast, writers and crew ever, as well as the incomparable Norman Lear. So while our hearts are very heavy, they are also bursting with appreciation for this amazing experience.”
And for all of you. All of you who told us how much One Day at a Time means to you. We’ve worked on many shows, but never have we experienced the outpouring of love, connection, and support like we have with ODAAT,” he continued.
However, it looks like there may be a chance the show will go on. At least if the creators have anything to say about it.
“Along with our studio Sony, we will be exploring other places where One Day at a Time can live, and with any luck we’ll find one,” he wrote. “Either way our three seasons will always exist and be there for you and for us. In the meantime, we want to thank everyone who watched. We love you. Familia Para Siempre.”
Netflix’s “One Day at a Time,” is a remake of the 1975 version, starring Bonnie Franklin, Valerie Bertinelli and MacKenzie Phillips. The new version focuses on the every day issues that are faced by the Hispanic community and stars Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky and Rita Moreno.
