One Day at a Time Rescued by Pop Channel

la-tv-diva-logoOne Day at a Time was previously cancelled by Netflix.

The resurrection comes roughly four months after the initial cancellation, and is the first time a cable network has rescued a cancelled streaming series.

The modern-day remake of the beloved Norman Lear comedy follows a Cuban-American family led by a divorced, former military mom (Justina Machado), who is raising two teenagers — Elena (Isabella Gomez) and Alex (Marcel Ruiz) with the help of her traditional Cuban mother Lydia (PEGOT winner Rita Moreno).

Rounding out the familia are good friend/landlord Schneider (Todd Grinnell) and Penelope’s boss Dr. Berkowitz (Stephen Tobolowsky).

Season 4 will  air as repeats on CBS, following its run on Pop as part of the deal.

Get Ready for Stranger Things Season 3

stranger-things-season-3-posterStranger Things returns for Season 3 on Thursday, July 4.

Eleven thought she closed the gate to the Upside Down for good but apparently she hasn’t as Season 3 of Stranger Things brings us front and centre with the Demogorgon.

This Season we can expect a monstrous new beast, and our first look at new cast members Cary Elwes and Jake Busey in action (as sleazy Mayor Kline and Hawkins Post reporter Bruce, respectively).

At the opening episode, Joyce and Hopper are still apart. The animosity that a jealous Jane initially felt toward Max has evolved into friendship, and Billy has found the perfect job (lifeguard), and the group learn that it’s a really bad idea to prank Dustin.

Be sure to read our recaps of previous Seasons before watching Season 3.
