Netflix's One Day at a Time announces season 2 premiere date in delightful video
The One Day at a Time cast is announcing the show’s season 2 premiere date in style.
The sitcom, which updates Norman Lear’s classic about a single mother, premiered last January to strong critical acclaim, gaining notices for its funny, nuanced take on Cuban-American identity and other sensitive topics such as sexuality and veterans’ rights. Developed by Gloria Calderón Kellett along with Mike Royce, Netflix’s One Day at a Time stars Justina Machado as a veteran trying to raise her two kids with her zany, demanding mother (Rita Moreno) breathing down her neck.
Despite no previously released premiere date information, Netflix has confirmed that the show will be back sooner than you think: Jan. 26. In a new announcement video, the cast expertly recreates the original One Day at a Time credits sequence, with a cover of Polly Cutter’s famous “This Is It” even playing over it. (The new version is a more modern sequence, with Gloria Estefan performing the song.) Not only does it make for a delightful reintroduction to the hilarious ensemble, but it showcases a pretty on-point wig game.
One Day at a Time alsostars Stephen Tobolowsky and Todd Grinnell, with Isabella Gómez and Marcel Ruiz playing Machado’s kids. The second season premieres Jan. 26 in its entirety on Netflix.
