The streaming service has decided not to renew the beloved and critically acclaimed Cuban-American reboot of the classic Norman Lear comedy for a fourth season. According to The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg, producer Sony Pictures Television "plans to shop the series, which could be problematic as Netflix will continue to own and house the first three seasons and a library deal would help make finding a new home an easier task." In a rare statement following a cancelation, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said: "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 Calderón 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. 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." The official Netflix account also released a series of tweets announcing the cancelation, saying: "The choice did not come easily — 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."
