Pop TV to Revive 'One Day at a Time'

Pop TV will bring back comedy series One Day at a Time three months after the series was canceled by Netflix.

Pop in 2020 will air a 13-episode fourth season of the Sony Pictures Television-produced series, which is based on the comedy created by Norman Lear's 1975 series of the same name.

Netflix canceled the series in March after a three season run. One Day at a Time will also air on CBS Television Network -- which aired the original 1970s series -- following its run on Pop, according to CBS officials.

One Day at a Time stars Justina Machado as a newly single Army veteran and follows her Cuban-American family as they navigate the ups and downs of life. Rita Moreno also stars along with Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz. 

"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,” said Brad Schwartz, Pop TV president 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.”

One Day at a Time creator Lear added: “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.”
