    “One Day At A Time” fans asked for the series to be saved after Netflix canceled the show shortly after Season 3 premiered earlier this year.

    They got their wish.

    Showrunner Gloria Calderón-Kellett announced on Thursday that the show will now have a new home in Pop TV.

    "Thanks to every fan who made #saveodaat trend worldwide," Calderón-Kellett wrote on Twitter. "ONE DAY AT A TIME is heading to POP TV & we couldn't be more excited!"

    A 13-episode fourth season of the show will air on Pop, which is owned by CBS, in 2020.

    "One Day at a Time" — a remake of Norman Lear’s 1970s groundbreaking hit of the same name — tells the story of a zany but endearing bicultural, multigenerational Cuban-American family living in Los Angeles.

    In this version, actress Justina Machado plays Penelope Alvarez, a recently divorced military veteran raising two children alongside her own feisty and dramatic mother, Lydia Riera, played by Rita Moreno.

    Many fans praised the show for being relatable and universal. So it was no surprise that hundreds of thousands of fans and supporters of the show overwhelmingly responded to Netflix's tweet announcing the cancellation. The outcry went viral, with the hashtags #SaveODAAT and #OneDayAtATime trending on Twitter almost immediately after the streaming service broke the news.
