Everything We Know About ‘One Day at a Time’ Season 3
The very popular sitcom One Day at a Time has been renewed by Netflix for a season 3. And that’s pretty obvious considering that the first two seasons were an absolute hit. Apparently, this show is based on a CBS sitcom which goes by the same name. The show has been widely appreciated for the way it tackles unique subjects that include racism, sexism, religion, PTSD, depression, and sexuality. In fact, you can judge its popularity from the fact that the very first season got nominated for an Emmy. Although it did not win, the show did win four times at the Imagen Foundation Awards. Now that One Day at a Time season 3 will soon return to Netflix in 2019, here’s everything that you must know about it!
This show revolves around the story of a Cuban-American family. The matriarch of the household Penelope has separated from her husband because he was an alcoholic. After moving away and taking both her children, she raises Elena and Alex as a single mom with the help of her own mother Lydia. Although she is always busy at being a mom or working as a nurse, she tries her luck at dating again. And that’s when we see the ups and downs of life. All together with the issues that an Hispanic family might have to face in their daily life.
Where Did Season 2 Leave it Off?
When One Day at a Time season 2 ended, it certainly was a much emotional affair for Lydia. After she suffered a stroke, it seemed like she would no longer make it. After her lover Berto gives her the option of either staying or leaving, Lydia decides she does not want to die yet. And as she wakes up from her coma, both Lydia and Schneider become US citizens.
So, fans are speculating and also, anticipating that One Day at a Time season 3 will pick off right where season 2 left it. And not to ruin anything for you, but it’s surely going to be an exciting one!
