“One Day at a Time” Cancelled at Netflix After Three Seasons

Cuban-American series “One Day at a Time” has been cancelled at Netflix after three seasons – the most recent season premiered on the streaming service last month. The series was centred around a recently separated, former military mom (Justina Machado) raising her radical teenaged daughter and socially adept tween son, with the “help” of her old school Cuban-born mom (Rita Moreno) and a friends- without-benefits building manager named Schneider.

In a rare admission of viewing numbers Netflix confirmed that “simply not enough people watched to justify another season” and went on to confirm that the LGBT community should not “take this as an indication [that] your story is not important”.

Statement from Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix:

It’s been a great honor to work with the legendary Norman Lear on One Day at a Time. I’ve personally spoken with Norman, and co-creators Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce, to express my gratitude to them, all the writers, the dedicated crew and the cast including the brilliant Justina Machado and dazzling Rita Moreno for creating a series with such humor, heart and humanity. This was a very difficult decision and we’re thankful to all the fans who’ve supported the series, our partners at Sony, and all the critics who embraced it. While it’s disappointing that more viewers didn’t discover One Day at a Time, I believe the series will stand the test of time.
