These Fans Won’t Let Netflix Cancel “One Day at a Time” Without a Fight


Netflix and chill might be a popular past time, but when a beloved Netflix series is on the verge of cancelation, fans are anything but.

Gloria Calderón Kellett is one of the showrunners for One Day at a Time, the critically-acclaimed Netflix original series. She took to Twitter this week to break the news to fans that she met with Netflix about the series’ future, and that a fourth season is currently undecided.

“They made clear that they love the show,” Kellett tweeted about her meeting with the streaming giant. “Love how it serves underrepresented audiences, love its heart & humor, but…we need more viewers. They’ll decide soon.”

A reboot of the popular ’70s sitcom, Netflix’s One Day at a Time has been praised for not only its humor and witty writing, but for also tackling a variety of serious subjects including depression, sexual abuse, addiction, and coming out as queer.

The third season, which premiered earlier this month on Netflix, currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and when fans learned that the show was in danger of getting the chop, they took to Twitter and got #RenewODAAT trending—even celebs like Gloria Estefan and Joe Manganiello, both who made cameos in the latest season, spoke up about hoping the series would be renewed.

What can us non-celeb fans do to make sure we see the Alvarez family again? Read the passionate tweets below defending why the series should return, and then fire up Netflix and spend the weekend binge-watching (or re-watching!) the streaming service’s best sitcom.
