After canceling the series in March, Netflix now has to decide if it's in its best interests for Season 4 to launch on another streaming service.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is swooping in to try and save recently canceled Netflix series “One Day at a Time,” just like he helped to do when “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was canceled by Fox.The rebooted sitcom was canceled Thursday after three seasons on Netflix, followed by an outpouring of support that resulted in the hashtag saveODAAT becoming the number one worldwide trend on Twitter in an hour.Echoing the last-minute save that found “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” a new home on NBC for a sixth season, the “Mary Poppins Returns” star tweeted at the network hoping to inspire some conversations about the fan-beloved “One Day at a Time.”“Hey @nbc…I hear you like comedies with built-in fan bases that do even better on YOUR network than at their previous homes,” Miranda tweeted in response to creators and showrunners Mike Royce and Gloria Calderon Kellett’s statement on the cancellation.Hey @nbc…I hear you like comedies with built-in fan bases that do even better on YOUR network than at their previous homes…saveODAAT https://t.co/5bIQYexpDz— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) March 14, 2019Miranda is a self-professed “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” fan — he recently guest starred in a March 7 episode of the series’ sixth season.
