Pop TV has announced the return date for former Netflix series “One Day at a Time,” which it saved from cancellation in June with a Season 4 pickup in response to an impassioned social-media outcry from fans who weren’t ready to say goodbye.
The Alvarez family returns on Tuesday, March 24 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, right after all new episodes of the final season of “Schitt’s Creek.” Then, “One Day at a Time” will move to the 9 p.m. time slot starting April 14.
The series, which was inspired by Norman Lear’s 1975 series of the same name, will tell the story of the Cuban-American Alvarez family with 13 new episodes in Season 4.
This season finds Penelope (Justina Machado) exploring a surprising relationship, her mother Lydia (Rita Moreno) experiencing a religious crisis – as well as revealing the details of her surprise trip to Cuba with Dr. Berkowitz (Stephen Tobolowsky), and Schneider (Todd Grinnell) finding his relationship with Avery (India de Beaufort) growing deeper. Meanwhile, Elena (Isabella Gomez) begins to prepare for college and Alex (Marcel Ruiz) starts to date, according to Pop TV.
“The enthusiastic response from fans since announcing our new season of ‘One Day at a Time’ has been thrilling,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Pop TV. “The series is more important than ever with its unmatched ability to tackle topical social issues through the lens of a relatable, loving family. The exceptionally talented team behind and in front of the camera make us proud to have ‘One Day at a Time’ at home at Pop TV.”
“One Day at a Time” is produced by Act III Productions, Inc., Snowpants Productions and GloNation in association with Sony Pictures Television. Lear, Mike Royce, Gloria Calderón Kellett and Brent Miller are executive producers.
“One Day at a Time” returns March 24 at 9:30/8:30c on Pop TV.
