The fourth season of the reimagined version of the series One Day at a Time, from legendary producer Norman Lear, will make its network television debut on Monday, Oct. 12 at 9/8c on CBS and CBS All Access with back-to-back episodes, 45 years after its original premiere. (Note: This broadcast was originally announced for Monday, Oct. 5 but has been rescheduled for Monday, Oct. 12.)

"45 years ago, I was delighted to premiere a series on CBS called One Day at a Time," said Executive Producer Norman Lear. "The show was a reflection of strong family values and a beautiful demonstration of how families come in all forms with love and humor at the center. I am so thrilled to have our reimagined One Day at a Time—this time Latinx and with Mike Royce and Gloria Calderón Kellett at the helm—and air in that same time slot this coming Monday evening. It is a full-circle moment, and I couldn't be more pleased. The times have changed, obviously the cast has changed, but the values remain the same—love and family make everything worthwhile."
