“It’s been a great honor to work with the legendary Norman Lear on One Day at a Time,” said the Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. He also added “I’ve personally spoken with Norman, and co-creators Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce, to express my gratitude to them, all the writers, the dedicated crew and the cast including the brilliant Justina Machado and dazzling Rita Moreno for creating a series with such humor, heart and humanity. This was a very difficult decision and we’re thankful to all the fans who’ve supported the series, our partners at Sony, and all the critics who embraced it. While it’s disappointing that more viewers didn’t discover One Day at a Time, I believe the series will stand the test of time.”

Sony Television, which produced this series, is expected to shop the series to other networks. Upon approaching Sony, they had no comments.
