Netflix has cancelled the series ‘One Day At A Time’ after third season. 

While this will hit those who ardently follow the show, exec producers Royce and Calderon Kellett addressed the cancellation in a heartfelt statement on Twitter: "Last night, Netflix told us they are cancelling One Day at a Time. We had the time of our lives making this show. We worked with the best, most giving and talented cast, writers and crew ever, as well as the incomparable Norman Lear. So while our hearts are very heavy, they are also bursting with appreciation for this amazing experience," they wrote. 

"And for all of you. All of you who told us how much One Day at a Time means to you. We've worked on many shows, but never have we experienced the outpouring of love, connection and support like we have with ODAAT. Along with our studio, Sony, we will be exploring other places One Day at a Time can live, and with any luck we'll find one. Either way our three seasons will always exist and be there for you and for us. In the meantime, we want to thank everybody who watched. We love you. Familia Para Siempre," they added. 

‘One Day at a Time’ joins the list of other shows that have been cancelled by the streaming platform. These include ‘Friends From College’, all the Marvel series, All About the Washingtons and American Vandal among others.

Netflix is said to be increasingly putting focus on ownership. They thus come down hard on shows sometimes and court top showrunners for eight- and nine-figure overall deals. They have massive competition from the other platforms, mostly the upcoming ones like Disney, Comcast and Warner Bros. that are launching their own.
