Three months since the debut of the hilarious and well-received “One Day at a Time,” a sitcom on Netflix, producers have given the show a much-praised second season.
“One Day At A Time” gets the green light for another season!
The comedy is based off of the old-school show with the same name that was released in the late ’70s, early ’80s, the main difference is that this contemporary version features a stellar Latino cast. The show’s premise centers around Penelope Alvarez, played by Justina Machado, a Cuban-American nurse, Iraq war Veteran, and single mom raising her two young kids along with her own mother played by Rita Moreno — probably the funniest person on the show.
Oh! And the theme song is sung by the great Gloria Estefan!
The show’s success and acclaimed reviews surely attributed to its second season renewal. But one of the main reasons this show deserves to be on the air is because it truly captures the dynamic and nuances of a modern-day Latino family that gets into real issues without being corny. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 96% approval rating, and that in itself is a pretty big deal.
The cast celebrated the good news about their second season with the cutest video ever.
