Netflix has opted against a fourth season of its “One Day at a Time” sitcom reboot, which was based on the original 1976-85 Norman Lear comedy and featured a Cuban-American family.
“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 Calderon 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,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement.
“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,” added Sarandos.
The show from Sony Pictures TV starred Justina Machado as an Iraq veteran, raising her children with her mother, played by Rita Moreno. A total of 39 episodes were produced. Talks of another outlet picking up “One Day at a Time” are currently circulating.
