¡Dale! The Alverazes are back!
A year after Netflix gave our favorite Cuban-American family an eviction notice with the cancellation of One Day at a Time, their critically-acclaimed reboot of Norman Lear's 1975 sitcom, the show is ready to roar back to life as a new member of the Pop family. Beginning on Tuesday, March 24, the long-awaited fourth season of the charming series kicks off, joining a programming block that features the network's outgoing hit Schitt's Creek. And from the looks of things, the cast couldn't be happier with their new home.
"Tomorrow is the day mi Gente," star Justina Machado, who plays single mom and war vet Penelope, wrote on Instagram the day before the big premiere. "We are so excited and proud of what we did and we hope to do a lot more."
She's not the only one to be singing the new season's praises, with her co-stars Rita Moreno, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz and Stephen Tobolowsky all celebrating on social media.
While ODAAT's road to resurrection is certainly unique--usually Netflix is the one saving the shows, not canceling shows that need saving--the comedy is hardly the first series in the history of TV to find a new lease on life on a new network. As we count down the minutes until the Alvarezes are back in our living room, let's take a look at the long list of shows who've come before them!
One Day at a Time returns for season four on Tuesday, March 24 at 9:30 on Pop.
