ViacomCBS has opted not to order a fifth season of the Pop TV comedy after its fourth season was cut short due to the coronavirus -- and failed to capture more viewers when re-aired on CBS. This is One Day at a Time's second cancelation after Netflix opted last year to axe the reboot of the classic Norman Lear comedy after three seasons. An animated special airing in June made in wake of the pandemic will be the last episode of the series, at least for now. The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg reports that Sony Pictures Television is "having ongoing conversations with multiple outlets as it searches for an unprecedented third home for One Day at a Time." She adds that "Sony and ViacomCBS had been in talks to renew the comedy for a fifth season on streamer CBS All Access. That deal was stymied by contractual limitations that were part of the show's original Netflix deal that limited when another streaming platform could run the series. Netflix would have had to sign off on a rival streamer reviving the series starring Justina Machado and Rita Moreno from showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce. The goal, per sources, would have been for CBS All Access to air a fifth season in 2021. That would have been a year earlier than Netflix's pact for the series. CBS All Access initially wanted to revive One Day at a Time for a fourth season but was unable to come to terms given the Netflix limitations. It then landed at Pop and, following a first-of-its-kind deal, became the first Netflix canceled original series to land at a new home. (Since then, animated comedy Tuca and Bertie — canceled a year ago at Netflix — was revived for a second season at WarnerMedia-owned Adult Swim.) Netflix would have had to have signed off on One Day at a Time's accelerated move to a rival streamer." ALSO: Showrunners express optimism Sony can find a new home for One Day at a Time.
