Netflix announced on Twitter on Thursday the cancellation of “One Day At A Time” after 3 seasons because the show did not have enough following to be further renewed.

The tweet said: “We’ve made the very difficult decision not to renew One Day At A Time for a fourth season.

“The choice did not come easily – we spent several weeks trying to find a way to make another season work but in the end simply not enough people watched to justify another season”.

This first tweet was then followed by a series of messages in which the streaming giant thanked members of the cast and crew of the show and all the fans who loved it.

“One Day At A Time” is the latest addition to an ever-growing list of shows Netflix has decided to cancel in the past few months.

Before ODAAT, in fact, popular shows such as “Friends From College” and Marvel’s Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil, The Defenders and The Punisher have been shut down, while Jessica Jones is returning for its third and last season.

Based on a hit show created in 1975 by Norman Lear, “One Day at a Time” is a sitcom which depicts the life of a Cuban-American family and the struggles faced by a single mother and army veteran, played by Justina Machado, who is raising her kids with the help of her own mother, played by Rita Moreno.

The show touched on topical themes and was a great source of representation for many people, who took on social media to express their disappointment.

Members of the cast and producers also decided to share their feelings on the Internet. Justina Machado tweeted: “I’m so grateful to have played Penelope Alvarez. I don’t even know how to begin to express my gratitude to everyone.

“Truly, I am so honored that we got to tell our stories. Yes, it was a Latinx family but it was a universal story about family and love. An American Familia.”
