June 25 (UPI) — Singer-songwriter Gloria Estefan announced on social media Monday she will guest star on the Netflix sitcom One Day at a Time.
“So excited to announce that I’ll finally be guest starring on @odaatnetflix I’ll be playing Mirtha, Lydia’s baby sister and arch-nemesis. I’m coming for you, Alvarez family! #ODAAT,” Estefan wrote on Twitter and Instagram.

The show was renewed in March for a third season. It follows a loving, functional family led by Justina Machado’s Penelope Alvarez, a U.S. Army Nursing Corps veteran and single mom who is working in a doctor’s office and raising her teenage children Elena and Alex — played by Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz — in Los Angeles with the help of her Cuban-born mother Lydia, played by Rita Moreno.
One Day at a Time is the remake of a series developed by revolutionary writer-producer Norman Lear, which ran from 1975 to 1984. It starred Bonnie Franklin as a divorcee living in Indianapolis with her teenage daughters, played by Valerie Bertinelli and Mackenzie Phillips.
