Netflix’s “One Day At A Time” was facing a very uncertain future. The show, which has aired two seasons, was not guaranteed a third season. Cast members and crew were asking friends, family and fans to spread the word that “One Day At A Time” needed to be renewed for a third season. One argument was to keep diversity in television and gives Latinos, specifically Cubans, some representation. Well, it finally happened. We will be getting a season 3 of “One Day At A Time.”
Netflix finally renewed “One Day At A Time” for a third season and it is cause for celebration.

The show is all about a multigenerational Cuban-American family living in Los Angeles. The tight-knit family is super relatable as they navigate what it means to be a modern family. The second season really hit home for Latinos when it touched on the affects of a Trump-run country.
Co-showrunner Gloria Calderón Kellett was overjoyed by the news.
Got a great call this morning! @OneDayAtATime HAS BEEN PICKED UP FOR SEASON THREE! Thank you to all of the wonderful & supportive fans. This is because of you! I am so grateful to you all! We can't wait to keep making this show for you! https://t.co/3tYhNZI4ea

The show is inspired by Kellett’s own upbringing in a Cuban-American family in Los Angeles.
Isabella Gomez, who plays Elena, is so grateful to bring more Latino representation to the world.

Penelope is a character that is so necessary. She is a single mother and veteran who is dealing with PTSD. Stories like these are not told and to see people who represent our community dealing with issues we sweep under the rug is so powerful.
Fans are ecstatic that the show has avoided being cancelled.
YAAAAAASS ❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/sMeVVAvFTw

Because representation matters to everyone.
People are telling everyone what they can expect from the show.
IF YOU SUPPORT:

They are pretty on point with their quick description of the show.
While the show packs a lot of important things into the episodes.

The representation alone is worthy of the how getting a third season.
