After Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time, Sony TV immediately started to shop it around and was approached by CBS All Access — but a clause in Netflix’s contract prevents the show from moving to another streaming service. So not only did they cancel it while at the same time talking about the need for diverse storytelling, they also made it more difficult for the show to live on.
