4. Calling It Quits
After the show’s ninth season, the network was ready to commit to another two seasons, but Bonnie Franklin decided to call it quits. According to her, the show “had gotten tired.” Pat Harrington, Jr., however, was disappointed that Franklin pulled the plug on the show because he had been offered a lot more money to do two more seasons.
Before One Day at a Time went off the air, there was talk about Pat Harrington Jr.’s character, Dwayne Schneider, getting a spin-off. It was going to called “Another Man’s Shoes” and would have featured Schneider living in Florida raising his deceased brother’s two kids. The spin-off never came to fruition.
