watch One Day at a Time s4 online

The One Day at a Time is officially over, but there’s a silver lining since you can now watch most of the show online. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the fourth and final season isn’t available for streaming anywhere, but it might come back at some point in the future. Below, we’ll explain how fans can watch the first three seasons of One Day at a Time online, from anywhere in the world.

We advise against using unofficial streaming sites. These often have low-quality video and there’s no guarantee that their content will even remain available for very long. On the plus side, it’s actually quite easy to stream One Day at a Time on legitimate services, as you’ll see shortly.

One Day at a Time is only on region-locked streaming services. If you’re traveling abroad, you’ll need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to watch on your usual platforms.

How to watch One Day at a Time online from abroad

VPNs encrypt your internet traffic, hiding your activities from anyone who might be watching. They’re also great at shielding your true location and helping you regain access to your favorite content abroad.

Here’s how to watch One Day at a Time online while traveling:

  1. The first step is to sign up for a reputable VPN. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two excellent, versatile alternatives.
  2. Next, download and install the service on any device you use for streaming. All of the above VPNs offer a wide range of apps including Chrome and Firefox browser extensions.
  3. Visit Netflix and log in. If you try to do this later, you’ll get an incorrect password error, even if you typed your login details perfectly.
  4. Open the VPN and connect to a server in your home country. This changes your IP address and lets you access your regular content library no matter where you are.
  5. Go back to Netflix and refresh the page. You should now be able to watch One Day at a Time as normal. If it’s still blocked, try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies.


NordVPN is offering a fully-featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for One Day at a Time with no restrictions for a monthgreat if you want to binge-watch the show or are going abroad.

There are no hidden termsjust contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

Despite cancelling the show, Netflix still owns the first three seasons of One Day at a Time. Better still, these are available in over 25 regional libraries, including Netflix US, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, and Spain.

Now, Pop TV bought the rights to ODaaT and created the first seven episodes of the fourth season before production was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic. These were shown on CBS and later, Paramount+ (at least in the US). Season four has since been scrubbed from every online streaming platform and is no longer available anywhere. We’ll let you know if it ever reappears.

It’s important to keep in mind that Netflix is geo-blocked. To watch this show in some countries, you may need a VPN. NordVPN includes a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. If you’re unsatisfied, you can always request a full refund before the end of the 30-day period.

Who stars in the One Day at a Time remake?

Unlike the original 1975 series, One Day at a Time’s 2017 reboot focused on a Latin American family, and as such, had a much more diverse and representative cast. This included:

  • Justina Machado (Missing) as Penélope Alvarez
  • Todd Grinnell (Desperate Housewives) as Pat Schneider
  • Isabella Gomez (Matador) as Elena Alvarez
  • Marcel Ruiz (Snowfall) as Alex Alvarez
  • Rita Moreno (Oz) as Lydia
  • Stephen Tobolowsky (CSI: Miami) as Leslie Berkowitz
  • Ed Quinn (Eureka) as Max
  • Tony Plana (The Punisher) as Berto

Will there be a fifth season of One Day at a Time?

Sadly, One Day at a Time will not be renewed for season five. Despite the staff’s enthusiam for continuing (and an abundance of unused storylines), they were unable to find a network willing to buy the show. This wasn’t helped by its abrupt ending: there were just seven episodes in season four instead of the usual 13. Additionally, the final episode drew just a fraction of the usual viewer numbers thanks to being both radically different from the rest (being animated instead of live action) and politically-charged (tackling the US election head-on).
