When Netflix announced that it would be cancelling its popular series ‘One Day At A Time’, outrage ensued. 

Three months on, the show has been saved by another network for a fourth season.

The Netflix-original comedy-drama, inspired by Norman Lear’s 1975 series of the same name, has been renewed for a fourth season by Pop TV, the network responsible for bringing fans ‘Schitt’s Creek’. 

“Three months ago, I was heartbroken with the news of our beloved One Day at a Time’s cancellation,” executive producer Norman Lear said in a statement.

“Today, I’m overwhelmed with joy to know the Alvarez family will live on.”

Thirteen new episodes will air in 2020.

The series follows a Cuban-American family living in Los Angeles, and deals with important topics like parenthood, LGBTQ+ representation and mental health.

Back in March, Netflix tweeted that it would not be renewing the show for a fourth season. 

“We’ve made the very difficult decision not to renew One Day At A Time for a fourth season,” Netflix tweeted.

“We spent several weeks trying to find a way to make another season work but in the end simply not enough people watched to justify another season.”

Fans were understandably outraged by Netflix’s decision, with the hashtag #SaveODAAT trending for weeks.

“ODAAT is such an important show that is filled with representation! It discusses topics that most shows shy away from or refuse to talk about,” one fan wrote.

“It’s full of love. I will never forgive Netflix for cancelling it. There will never be another show like ODAAT.”

Another added: “You know for a platform that claims to endorse diversity and positive representation, Netflix sure does cancel a lot of shows that ACTUALLY support that claim.”

“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,” Pop TV President Brad Schwartz said in a statement.

“If Schitt’s Creek has taught us anything, it’s that love and kindness always wins… 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.”

We are so ready!
