Pop Cancels 'One Day at a Time' After Four Seasons

After airing its abbreviated fourth season on both Pop and CBS, ViacomCBS has announced today that it will not produce any additional episodes of the original comedy series One Day at a Time for any of its broadcast, cable or streaming outlets.

The comedy starred Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky and Rita Moreno.

Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce created the comedy. They executive produced with Norman Lear, Brent Miller, Dan Signer and Sebastian Jones. Sony Pictures Television, Act III Productions, Snowpants Productions and Glo Nation produced.

The comedy produced its first three seasons for Netflix. After the streamer cancelled the series, Pop picked up the rights to a fourth season. 13 episodes were ordered. However, only six episodes were shot after production was forced to shut down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. An animated special was later produced as the seventh (and now final) episode of the season. The six episodes of the fourth season also aired earlier this fall on CBS. Sony is currently shopping the series to other outlets for what would be its presumptive third home.
