CBS All Access has reportedly put in a bid for the show, but it's still up in the air whether or not Netflix will let it go. 

In honor of the innovative and groundbreaking comedy, we've put together a slide show of 13 reasons why One Day at a Time deserves to be saved! 


1. It exemplifies the importance of strong familial bonds

It exemplifies the importance of strong familial bonds
At its heart, the show is about family. And as Schneider's inclusion proves, it's not just about blood relation. Your family is about the people who support and love you, and have your back no matter what.

2. There's Latinx representation

There's Latinx representation
The show centers around a Cuban family, as well as the struggles they face being Cuban-American. It's incredibly eye-opening and helps give Latinx the representation and voice they deserve.

3. There's LGBT+ representation

There's LGBT+ representation
Elena's coming-out story was a big part of the show's first season, and One Day at a Time really pulled out all the stops. It took Elena a little bit to figure it out for herself and to find the right way to tell her family. They all had different reactions, but her mom, grandma, and brother, all supported her wholeheartedly.

4. It adresses sexual assault/harassament

As usual, Elena has the perfect response for everything. How about instead of teaching women not to wear "revealing clothing" we just teach men not to rape?

5. It calls out sexism

Penelope Alvarez is a queen who doesn't take crap from anyone. After continuously being on the receiving end of sexist comments from her co-worker, she calls him out once and for all.

6. It adresses homophobia

It adresses homophobia
Elena's father said all the stereotypical responses when she came out to him as a lesbian. He was unsupportive towards her and just offensive in general. But the series dealt with it in a mature way and Elena's speech to her father about his prejudice was beautiful.
