Good news for fans of the Cuban-American series “One Day at a Time” which was cancelled at Netflix after three seasons earlier this year. The CBS-owned cable network Pop TV has announced that it has picked up the show for a 13-episode fourth season that will air in 2020. The show will also air on CBS TV later in the year but no worldwide distribution has been announced yet.
The series is 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”.
