Living Legend Rita Moreno Made a Beautiful Plea to Save One Day at a Time

One Day at a Time

If you haven’t been watching One Day at a Time, you’re probably missing all the gems coming from Rita Moreno. In fact, if you haven’t been watching the show, stop reading this and go watch it. Right now. Drop what you’re doing. We want season 4, and if you binge-watch the entire show, then maybe we can get season 4.

If you’re still reading, I’m assuming you’ve seen the show. (I’m trusting you all, so you’d better be honest!) Busy Philipps and series creator Gloria Calderón Kellett were already friends, and to help promote the show and get it the season 4 it deserves, Philipps brought Kellet, Justina Machado, and Rita Moreno on the show to talk all things One Day at a Time.

But, of course, when you have a living legend like Rita Moreno on your show, you’re going to talk about some wonderful aspects of her past—like her time in West Side Story and how she is going to be a part of the remake!

As the show went on, Philipps revealed that she got a plane to fly over Netflix telling them to renew One Day at a Time, and the only KEGOT winner in the world (Moreno) shared a story that should get her a fourth season, another KEGOT, and whatever else her heart desires. For those who don’t know, a KEGOT means that Rita Moreno has won an Emmy, an Oscar, a Grammy, a Tony, and is one of the Kennedy Center honorees.

So … that talent means that we applaud this story about her peeing her white gown.

It isn’t just that we love the cast; One Day at a Time is a beautiful show that means a lot to a whole diverse group of people. From Elena’s coming out story to the heartbreaking season 2 finale, this show has something for everyone one of its viewers and more. The thing is, One Day at a Time has a lot of heart, and even if it isn’t your favorite show, you still want to watch every episode and enjoy it.

Also, Rita Moreno is the gift that keeps on giving, and the world is a much better place with Lydia and the Alvarez family in it. Also, Schneider. Who can forget about Schneider?
