One Day at a Time Season 2? Showrunner Mike Royce is high on a second season of the Netflix reboot, and believes it could even air later in 2017, renewal/scheduling permitting, per Vulture:
I would not argue with more. Whatever they want to throw at us is great. I think they’ve been pretty accommodating in terms of making the show creatively good. So I don’t think they would do something, even if they gave us more [episodes], that would diminish the quality by pumping out a whole bunch. But it is possible that there could be more episodes in 2017? I do not have any inside info. I think it’s possible, but that’s all I think.
On how Trump’s presidency might impact a possible Season 2:
From our perspective, we have to be relevant, but not necessarily topical. Our lead time for episodes is even longer than the networks. These are shows we shot starting in May. Imagine if we had written a show in May about Trump. You can’t be specifically topical because you don’t know what’s going to happen next. This is not an issue-of-the-week show. And not all of Norman’s shows were that. But this show does have characters who have issues that are important in America right now, issues that are relevant to their lives. And we want to explore those issues as they are relevant to the characters.
Is more One Day at a Time definitely coming to Netflix in 2017-18? Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the renew/cancel status of One Day at a time Season 2…
