One Day At A Time Scores A Save From Pop TV: Show Renewed For A Fourth Season

The TV Gods have spoken, and many fans’ prayers were answered this week thanks to the big TV news dropped Thursday afternoon.

Fans of the hit series One Day at a Time can breathe easily and dance in celebration as Pop TV revealed that it picked up the series that was canceled by Netflix this year for a fourth season. The upcoming season will have an episode count of thirteen, which should also make fans very happy as well.

Netflix’s decision in March to cancel the critically-lauded series was immediately met with fan backlash.

“Three months ago, I was heartbroken with the news of our beloved One Day At A Time’s cancellation. Today, I’m overwhelmed with joy to know the Alvarez family will live on,” Normal Lear, executive producer and creator of the original 1975 series, shared after the news had dropped. “Thank you to my producing partner, Brent Miller, our incredibly talented co-showrunners, Mike Royce and Gloria Calderón Kellett, and of course, Sony, for never once giving up on the show, our actors or the possibility that a cable network could finally save a cancelled series that originated on a streaming service.  And one last thank you to, Pop, for having the guts to be that first cable network.  Even this I get to experience – at 96.”

“How amazing it is to be involved with this brilliant and culturally significant series that deals with important themes one minute while making you laugh the next,” Brad Schwartz, Pop TV President, added. “If Schitt’s Creek has taught us anything, it’s that love and kindness always wins. Pop is now the home to two of the most critically praised and fan-adored comedies in all of television, bringing even more premium content to basic cable. We couldn’t be more proud to continue telling heartwarming stories of love, inclusion, acceptance and diversity that pull on your emotions while putting a smile on your face.”

Showrunner and executive producer Gloria Calderón Kellett  also took to Twitter to share the good news.

Bless Pop TV for coming to the rescue and for all the fans who never gave up hope and fighting for their show. Here’s to getting more stories that everyone can relate to, especially the Latino community, as society continues to work on getting more representation for all communities.
