'One Day at a Time' Showrunner Offers Much-Needed Closure After Second Cancelation

One of the worst things about abrupt cancelations is the lack of closure. What will happen to the characters? Does the story end on an ambiguous note or is everything wrapped up in a neat enough bow? We may have the answers to those questions for One Day at a Time despite its most recent cancelation. Sort of.

One Day at a Time had a streak of bad luck that led to two different cancelations. The first happened at Netflix, where the beloved sitcom was axed after just three seasons. Social media outcry helped land the series at Pop TV, the home of Schitt’s Creek. However, any happiness for a Season 4 pickup was quickly squandered after yet another cancelation. This show couldn’t catch a break. There’s also the fact that the show didn’t even get to wrap filming due to COVID shutting down production, so the rest of the episodes planned (and already written) for the season will never see the light of day.

One Day at a Time showrunner Gloria Calderón Kellett fought hard to keep the show going for a long time. Now that it’s officially over and the series won’t be picked up anywhere else (which is pretty unfair for a show as good as this one), Calderón Kellett gifted fans with the synopses for the series’ final episodes. Season 4 had six episodes left before ending and now, thanks to this beautiful gift, we’ll at least have some closure regarding what could have been and never was.
