One Day at a Time Season 4 Episode 7 Release Date
It has been reported that episode 6 was the last episode the makers managed to shoot before production had to be halted in mid-March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As there are no episodes left in stock, the show can only come back next year. So, unfortunately, ‘One Day at a Time’ season 4 episode 7 is expected to release sometime in 2021, on Pop TV.
However, co-showrunner Gloria Calderón Kellett revealed to Deadline that fans would soon get to enjoy a one-off animated special episode featuring the beloved Alvarez family. “As we all know, it’s hard to keep One Day at a Time off the air. During this unprecedented time, we wanted to find a way to keep our family – on camera and behind the scenes – together and create more entertaining content for our fans who are self-distancing at home,” Kellett said.
The episode revolves around Penelope, Alex, Lydia, and Elena, as they gear up for a visit from Penelope’s conservative extended family. Fear of fighting over politics sets in, and the Alvarez family struggles to map out a plan to evade the discussion of political affairs. All the cast members are all set to voice their own characters, and the episode is expected to air sometime in spring 2020.
