Netflix’s One Day At A Time reboot proved that Norman Lear’s issues-oriented sitcoms could stay true to their roots without looking silly among all the prestige-dramas and slick single-camera series of today. The artful dramedy, from Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, surprised audiences with its mix of timeliness and family-based humor. In the first teaser for season two, the show plays up its predecessor’s ’70s aesthetic, down to the Dorothy Hamill haircuts and polyester threads.

The playful clip also reveals the season-two premiere date: January 26, 2018, roughly one year after it bowed on the streaming service. So we can look forward to more lively and wrenching episodes after the new year.
