A comedy series that’s described as a “reimagining” of a classic sitcom has just been picked up for a third season. Netflix announced the renewal today for “One Day at a Time,” its update on the Norman Lear classic.
Returning cast members for season three will include Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Todd Grinnell, Stephen Toblowsky, Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz. The streaming service has 13 half-hour episodes in the works, which will roll out in 2019.
The reboot’s executive producers include Lear, co-creators/co-showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, Michael Garcia and Brent Miller. The show is produced by Sony Pictures Television for Netflix.
Here’s how Netflix describes the show in today’s announcement:
“A reimagining of the iconic Norman Lear sitcom, ‘One Day at a Time’ is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy that follows three generations of a Cuban-American family sometimes reluctantly cohabitating and navigating the ups and downs of life. A newly single mom and military veteran journeys through the triumphs and tribulations that come with raising two strong-willed, mega-millennial children, all the while enlisting the ‘help’ of her old-school mother and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidante. Through a contemporary lens, ‘One Day at a Time’ offers a glimpse at what life looks like, in good times and bad — and how those around you somehow make it all worthwhile.”
