One Day at a Time season 3 is about to premiere pretty soon. Hence, a lot of promotions are happening by the cast on their social media. Marcel Ruiz recently posted behind the scenes footage of the show and it’s definitely exciting. Now, the actress Isabella Gomez who plays Elena Alvarez, has made her own post on Instagram. And it has One Day at a Time fans entirely confused!
We see the main cast of One Day at a Time. Justina Machado (Penelope Alvarez), Todd Grimell (Schneider), Isabella Gomez (Elena Alvarez) and Marcel Ruiz (Alex Alvarex). But wait! There’s no Rita Moreno! The sassy and a strong Cuban patriot, Lydia Riera and loving abuelita is not in any of the pictures. Fans were quick to point it out in the comments section.
Possible explanation to this Confusion
Everyone is quite confused at these pictures because Rita Moreno is such an important cast member of the show. It would be devastating if she does not appear in One Day at a Time Season 3.
But, the trailer for One Day at a Time Season 3 did have Rita Moreno in it! Lyda, aka the beloved abuelita, was seen wearing a beautiful red dress and a sassy attitude that her fans adore her for.
Justina Machado, who plays Penelope Alvarez posted a similar picture but with an interesting caption.
She expressed love for the cast in the picture and stated that she was missing Rita Moreno, Brent Miller and Dave Kellett. This seems like that Rita Moreno was possibly just busy on that photoshoot day! We certainly hope that’s the case.
Moreover, we are seeing some new faces in the picture. Perhaps there will be more additions to the amazing cast of One Day at a Time in season 3. We already know Melissa Fumero is going to be making an appearance!
One Day At a Time Season 3 will be available to stream on Netflix on 8th February 2019. The show was created by Mike Royce and Gloria Calderon Kellett. The producers of the show are Benji Samit, Dan Hernandez and Patricia Fass Palmer. The creators and producers often act as writers of the show as well!
