Netflix is canceling "One Day at a Time" after three seasons.
In a statement Thursday, the streaming service's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, called it "disappointing" that more viewers didn't discover the sitcom.
A tweet on a Netflix company account said not enough people watched to justify renewing it, and called the cancellation a difficult step.
Created by Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, it was among the few TV series with Latinos as the lead characters.
Justina Machado played a single Cuban-American mom and military veteran, with Rita Moreno as her mother.
It was a reboot of the original "One Day at a Time," which was co-created by Norman Lear and aired from 1975-84 with stars Valerie Bertinelli and Bonnie Franklin.
Lear was among the Netflix series' executive producers.
