Announced this morning, the streaming platform has officially canceled the critically acclaimed family comedy after 3 seasons.
Fans of the Latinx series slammed the media company, taking to Twitter in droves to accuse Netflix of failing to promote the show. "The outpouring of love for this show is a firm reminder to us that we must continue finding ways to tell these stories".
Netflix shared the news on Thursday and explained why it made the choice to not continue the series, saying, "We've made the very hard decision not to renew One Day At A Time for a fourth season". I'm so grateful to have played Penelope Alvarez.
Fans reacted angrily to Netflix's Twitter announcement, which read: 'We've made the very hard decision not to renew One Day At A Time for a fourth season. "Either way our three seasons will always exist be there for you and for us". Other show co-creator, Gloria Calderón Kellett, shared a string of tweets about her gratefulness and experience with the show. This is the gig. But believe in miracles. I do.
Another user expressed how sad they were that this show, which tackled an important topic such as depression, will no longer be made.
Adapted by Kellett and Royce from Lear's original series of the same name, One Day at a Time was a critical darling with a social media following. "No joke actually I will be more upset than I have ever been over any show cancellation literally ever GOD such a good f****** show another season I'd like to HAVE IT [goodnight]". To Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Rita Moreno: thank you for inviting us into your family.
According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, producer Sony Pictures Television plans to shop the series elsewhere.
