Tv Season Info

Season 2 of the comedy series tackles issues that are at the forefront of present-day America. Alex (Marcel Ruiz) is taunted at school with "build the wall"; Lydia (Rita Moreno) has to take her citizenship test, which she finds very difficult and might result in her being deported; Penelope (Justina Machado) recalls how 9/11 changed her life and forced her to make decisions that ultimately caused her struggles with mental illness. However, not everything is dark and gloomy: This season also deals with Elena's (Isabella Gomez) love life, Dwayne's (Todd Grinnell) unwavering support of the family, and a new boyfriend for Penelope.

Critic Reviews for One Day at a Time Season 2

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (12)

The cast is divine, the show feels contemporary and smart (its explorations of sexual and gender identity feel particularly profoundly needed), and Rita Moreno can still crack your heart right open.

One Day at a Time is rich with the sort of specific details that give a show a universal feel.

One Day at a Time doesn't make us laugh so much as let us laugh. Not to say there aren't some sitcom-y jokes, but they tend to feel real.

This show is an emotional roller coaster, one where this minute you're crying your eyes out and the next one you're laughing so hard your stomach hurts.

Not only does One Day at a Time snatch the winning crown for Most Inclusive show at Mediaversity, it blows its competition out of the water.

One Day at a Time has a heartbeat and emotional depth that makes it one of the best series on television.

It is a pleasure that 'One Day at a Time' exists. It makes us suffer, embraces and comforts us. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a heck of a cliffhanger that eventually manifests as an ode to honesty.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

If the show breathes new life into archetypes, it also succeeds in turning abstract political issues into deeply personal experiences. What more could a sitcom do?

    If the first season was great this season totally exceeded my expectations. It was funny, sad, moving, real, relatable and completely beautiful. Also that last episode had me weeping!

    Amazing show! One of the best for sure! Too bad Netflix has a horrible team & wanted to cancel the next season. #SaveODAAT

    The sweetest family on multi cam is back tugging heart strings and tickling funny bones. Just the opening scene music will put a smile on your face.

    I LOVE IT. I AM mexican and i live in mexico. we have never lived in the usa so we dont have a "crossing the border" story, however my parents migrated from the south of the country to the north, where i came to be born and live up until today. i relate so much with all the latin traditions and lydia reminds me a lot to my grandma.. i love the show
