Netflix has canceled its "One Day at a Time" reboot after three seasons, the streamer announced on Wednesday.

Despite critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase, the show had been on the bubble for renewal, becoming the subject of a campaign for renewal on social media in recent months. Co-creator and co-showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett called on fans last month to stream the show and express their desire for a fourth season.

However, Netflix said Wednesday that the Norman Lear sitcom's viewership numbers did not justify a fourth season. "The choice did not come easily — we spent several weeks trying to find a way to make another season work but in the end simply not enough people watched to justify another season," the streamer said in a statement.

Producers Sony Pictures Television plan to shop the show to other outlets and networks in the coming weeks, according to an individual familiar with the situation.

"It's been a great honor to work with the legendary Norman Lear on One Day at a Time," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. "I've personally spoken with Norman, and co-creators Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce, to express my gratitude to them, all the writers, the dedicated crew and the cast including the brilliant Justina Machado and dazzling Rita Moreno for creating a series with such humor, heart and humanity. This was a very difficult decision and we're thankful to all the fans who've supported the series, our partners at Sony, and all the critics who embraced it. While it's disappointing that more viewers didn't discover One Day at a Time, I believe the series will stand the test of time."
