Rejoice! Netflix Gives ‘One Day At A Time’ Another Season

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.

Second Season!!!! #onedayatatime

Sasha Calle Is Officially The DC Universe’s First-Ever Latina Supergirl

The DC Universe just got a heck of a lot more Brown.

This week, it was announced that 25-year-old actress Sasha Calle is poised to be the franchise’s newest superstar. Known for portraying Lola Rosales on “The Young and the Restless,” the actress will take on the role of Supergirl in the DC film franchise.

Her first appearance as Supergirl expected to debut in the upcoming movie “The Flash.”

Calle, who is of Colombian heritage, is set to become the first Latina ever to play the role of Supergirl.

Calle earned her first breakout role in 2018 after being cast in the long-running CBS daytime drama “The Young & The Restless” as a food truck owner and the youngest sister of brothers in the midst of a toxic rivalry.

Calle earned a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Young Performer in a Drama Series category last year for her part in the series.

“On behalf of everyone at ‘The Young and the Restless,’ we’d like to congratulate Sasha Calle on making history and being chosen to play the first Latina Supergirl,” the daytime drama’s executive producer Anthony Morina and co-executive producer/head writer Josh Griffith shared in a statement. “The role of Supergirl is a perfect fit for someone of Sasha’s immense talent, and we wish her all the best as she takes on this groundbreaking role.”

According to Deadline, Calle beat out 425 actresses for the part of Supergirl.

Andy Muschietti director of The Flash gave Calle the good news about her role over Zoom.

“Can I freak out for a second?” Calle asked before announcing the news to someone offscreen. “I got it,” she said to the person off-camera while doing a dance in her chair. Turning back to Muschietti, Calle admitted “I’m probably not going to stop crying all day.”

Calle shared the moment to her Instagram admitting she was still processing the big news.

“A Latina superhero?!” Calle wrote of the news in Spanish. “On what planet?! Well, on this planet! What joy and what pride.” Thanking her mom, Calle wrote, “I adore you with everything I have. You are an example of a superhero.”
