From the release date to the cast and the plot, here's everything you need to know about the third season of Netflix's 100% Certified Fresh sitcom, One Day At A Time.

Fans of Netflix's amazing family sitcom "One Day At A Time" have been pushing for a third season for weeks now and it's finally been confirmed!

Here's everything you need to know about the series that's certified 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, including the cast and the trailers.

Will there be a third season of One Day At A Time?

Yes! Netflix has officially renewed the show for a third season!

Thanks to the fan support on Twitter and the critical reception the show has garnered over the past two seasons (season 2 has been given 100% on Rotten Tomatoes), it's a strong possibility that season 3 is on the cards, with an option for many many more.

When will season 3 be released on Netflix?

The show will return for a 13-episode season that will air in 2019. Both season 1 and season two were released on Netflix in January so it'll most likely drop in January.


How many episodes will be in One Day At A Time season 3?

Like the previous two seasons, Netflix has ordered another 13-episode season.


Which cast members will be back?

Well, you can bet that the iconic, living legend and EGOT winner Rita Moreno will be back as Lydia, alongside the rest of the Riera/Alvarez family; Justina Machado, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz. Todd Grinell as Schneider and Stephen Tobolowsky as Dr. Berkowitz will probably also be back.

Tony Plana and James Martinez will also probably make a few appearances as Berto and Victor respectively.

Thanks to its huge success and critical acclaim, we might even be blessed with a few more iconic actors joining the already incredible line up.


What will happen in the show?

Seeing as the show loosely follows a sitcom format, literally anything could happen to the family. A third season will probably see Penelope and Lydia chase romantic interests. Elena and Syd's relationship with probably progress, there'll be family dramas and of course, Schneider will find himself in some pretty interesting situations.

Speaking to Uproxx, showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce are keen to push forward with the mix of comedy and hard-hitting emotional subjects, something that sets the show apart from it's peers.

One Day At A Time has already touched on important issues that face the Hispanic community and families in general. It has dealt with topics like PTSD, depression, and anxiety amongst veterans, as well as sexuality, gender identity, sexism, racism and religion. In the season finale, the show even dealt with Lydia in a medically-induced coma after having a stroke and how her family came to terms with her possible death.

So, you can probably expect more of that, with a bucket of Moreno one liners thrown in for good measure.


Is there a trailer yet?

Not yet! If the show is renewed, you can probably expect a trailer toward the end of 2018.
