The series, a reimagining of Lear's series with a Latino family, did significantly better on classic sitcoms-focused TV Land, raising speculation that, if One Day at a Time was renewed, it would move to TV Land. When Royce commented on the cancellation, he noted that "much has changed at Viacom in the a year ago", and that they are "still trying for season 5".

One Day At A Time can't catch a break. CBS also aired episodes of the show starting in October. Initially, the production was one of Netflix's originals, but after its cancellation in the 3rd season, it was rescued by Pop TV, belonging to the ViacomCBS group.

But just like the last time it was canceled, the showrunners aren't giving up hope. While One Day At a Time's future looks bleak right now, Gloria Calderón Kellett is still hopeful. The cast consisted of Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky and Rita Moreno.

Deadline reports that Pop TV, the network which saved One Day at a Time after Netflix gave it the boot, has decided not to order any more episodes.

This is now the second cancellation One Day at a Time has gone through, but the show's producers at Sony Pictures TV have stated that they intend to shop the series around to find it a new home. Pop rescued the show a few months later and began airing Season 4 earlier this year.

It is produced by Act III Productions, Inc., Snowpants Productions and GloNation in association with Sony Pictures Television, with Norman Lear, Mike Royce, Gloria Calderón Kellett and Brent Miller serving as executive producers. We still have some hope for new homes.

And guess what? We're still trying for season 5. Hang tight, my loves. Mike Royce, co-showrunner, confirmed the news via social media thanking the team and the cast. The show had a devoted audience on Netflix but the streamer wanted to develop other shows and One Day At a Time ultimately paid the price. Seriously, regardless of what happens, familia para siempre.
