It’s no secret that we here at The Mary Sue loves Netflix’s One Day at at Time. And what’s not to love? The show features a talented, charismatic cast and plays an important role in Latinx representation. ODAAT is unafraid to tackle serious issues, ranging from immigration, sexuality, addiction, PTSD and veterans issues. And did I mention it’s funny? The series is brimming with warmth and authenticity, winning over audiences everywhere.
Yet despite stellar critical reviews (all three seasons have near perfect Rotten Tomatoes scores), the show remains on the cancellation bubble. Showrunner Gloria Calderón Kellett recently tweeted out her concern over the series’ future:
They made clear that they love the show, love how it serves underrepresented audiences, love its heart & humor, but…we need more viewers. They’ll decide soon.
I wish I felt more confident

We’re rooting for ODAAT, because in addition to being a damn entertaining show, it’s a show with a real message: hope. It’s all about coming together, celebrating our differences, and loving one another. This is the kind of show we need more of. Do the right thing Netflix, or you’re going to have some angry fans on your hands.
