11. One Day at a Time

In 2017, Netflix greenlit a reboot of the series for One Day at a Time.

The original series aired from 1975-1984 and featured a family living in an apartment complex. Bonnie Franklin starred as a divorced mother and this was the breakout roles for Valerie Bertinelli as one of her daughters.

However, most fans remember the character of Snyder — the building maintenance man played by Pat Harriongton Jr.

The reboot of the series faced a lot of obstacles, as most reboots are instantly dismissed. However, Netflix took it in a different direction and their version of One Day at a Time made the family Latino and that instantly made it topical in today’s social landscape.

The new series focused on a single Latino mother who is also an Army veteran dealing with PTSD.

It featured her kids and her own Cuban mother and dealt with everything from mental illness and sexism to immigration, racism and homophobia — social issues Latinos face in the United States every day — as well as issues facing U.S. veterans.

It was an instant success, making the top 10 on many lists of the best TV shows of 2017 and went on to pick up an Emmy Award nomination and a Critics’ Choice Award for Rita Moreno.

The second season received even higher praise with a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes when it comes to critics’ reviews.

A third season is coming in 2019.
