Never say die!! Fans of the TV show One Day at a Time worked their magic and actually used their collective power to get another network to pick up the show after Netflix cancelled it. Let's look at the history. One Day at a Time was originally on TV in the 70's and 80's, created and produced by Norman Lear. In 2017, he decided to bring the show back with a different cast and a bit of a different story with actors Justine Machado and Rita Moreno. It was a hit on Netflix. But earlier this year, Netflix decided it wasn't a big enough hit so they cancelled it after three seasons. Fans and the cast were distraught. They wanted more. So they started a social media movement with the hashtag #SaveOneDayAtATime. And it worked! The cable network POP has picked up the show for a 13 episode fourth season. And the cast and fans are thrilled. Even Norman Lear said: “Thank you to my producing partner, Brent Miller, our incredibly talented co-showrunners, Mike Royce and Gloria Calderón Kellett, and of course, Sony, for never once giving up on the show, our actors or the possibility that a cable network could finally save a cancelled series that originated on a streaming service. And one last thank you to, Pop, for having the guts to be that first cable network. Even this I get to experience – at 96.” Pretty cool stuff. The new season will debut on Pop early in 2020.
