PopTv’s One Day At A Time is an acclaimed comedy-drama series created by Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce. Based on the 1970s comedy series of the same name, the show revolves around a Cuban single mother, Penelope, who lives with her two children, Elena and Alex. The Emmy-winning sitcom has provided fans with many heartwarming and humorous moments over the years. But fans have been waiting for season 5 of One Day At A Time for a while now. So let’s discuss what we know about it.
One Day At A Time Season 5 Cast!
One of the main highlights of the One Day At A Time series is the powerful performance of the all-star cast. The cast of the series includes Justina Machado as Penelope Alvarez, a former army nurse. Penelope’s two children, Alex and Elena, are played by Marcel Ruiz and Isabella Gomez, respectively. On the other hand, Todd Grinnell appears as Pat Schneider. Meanwhile, other key cast members include Stephen Tobolowsky as Dr. Leslie Berkowitz, Penelope’s desolate boss, and Rita Moreno as Penelope’s mother, Lydia. When the show returns for One Day At A Time Season 5, we expect most of the prominent cast members to return to their roles.
Will Season 5 come one day at a time?
The fourth season of the comedy series was released on PopTv on March 24, 2020. Meanwhile, the show has not been renewed by the network, while it is about season 5 of One Day At A Time. The creators, on the other hand, are fully on board with the idea of a fifth season. During an interview, the series’ executive producer, Gloria Calderon Kellett, said: “We always come in with a skeleton of what we think we’re going to do. And we kind of built that up to season 5 or 6. There are so many things that we haven’t been able to tell because of this family. We still have so much to process for them.”
But unfortunately, the network is not interested in bringing the series back for a fifth season. This was confirmed by Kellet’s Tweet, in which she wrote. “It’s officially over. There will be no new ones @One day at a time episodes. But there will always be 46 episodes that we have to make live FOREVER. Thanks to this beautiful cast. Our dedicated crew. And for you, our loyal fans. We loved making this for you. Thanks for looking.”
What could be the plot of One Day At A Time season 5?
When the show returns with One Dat At A Time season 5, the story will continue after the events of the fourth season. The show’s fifth season follows the numerous pursuits of the Cuban-American Alvarez family residing in LA. The fifth season may keep up with the show’s trend of exploring standard issues. This includes mental health, sexism, homophobia, immigration, gender identity and racial identity facing the Latinx community in the United States.
Executive producer Gloria Calderon Kellett emphasized that One Day At A Time Season 5 would feature some heartbreaking episodes. They even planned an episode on religious faith. On the other hand, they also have an episode planned about Elena as she tries to decide where to go to school. Since a romance blossomed between Penelope and Max, the next one can focus on that too.
