One Day at a Time revived for Season 4 on Pop and CBS

  • One Day at a Time

    The canceled Netflix comedy has found a new home on Pop TV. The CBS-owned cable network has ordered a 13-episode fourth season of the Cuban-American revival of the classic Norman Lear comedy to air in 2020. As part of the deal, CBS will re-air Season 4 later in 2020. The deal, marking the first time a canceled Netflix series has found a new home, also gives Pop the rights to air Seasons 1 through 3, while Netflix retains streaming rights to the first three seasons. After its cancelation, One Day at a Time's options were limited because Netflix held exclusive streaming rights to the comedy, preventing it from jumping to another streaming service for a few years. The deal also marks a reunion for Lear and CBS, where many of his groundbreaking shows aired, including All in the Family, The Jeffersons and the original One Day at a Time. "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. Pop is now the home to two of the most critically praised and fan-adored comedies in all of television, bringing even more premium content to basic cable. 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." Lear added in his own statement: “Three months ago, I was heartbroken with the news of our beloved One Day at a Time’s cancellation. Today, I’m overwhelmed with joy to know the Alvarez family will live on. Thank you to my producing partner, Brent Miller, our incredibly talented co-showrunners, Mike Royce and Gloria Calderon 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."


    • One Day at a Time creators say they'll be able to be more timely as a weekly show: “It’s very interesting because instead of binged at once, we are going to come out once a week and will be able to be a little closer to when things will be happening,” said Mike Royce, who co-created the Netflix comedy with Gloria Calderon Kellett. “Will still of course will be producing it well ahead of the events that are happening but that will be a new experience to have the timing of it.” Kellett said of the pickup: “It’s a lower budget, we all made sacrifices, we all came up with compromises in order to keep the show going but nothing to prevent us from making the show that we wanted to make. That’s one of the things about Pop that made it really exciting for us -they made very clear that they wanted to keep making the show we want to make; that’s all you want to hear as a creator.”
