Sheridan Pierce and Raúl Castillo are set for recurring roles on the upcoming third season of Netflix’s One Day At A Time.

Pierce, who appeared in four episodes in Season 2, returns to the series as Syd, Elena’s (Isabella Gomez) girlfriend who identifies as both queer and non-binary. Castillo will play Mateo, a dad friend of Penelope’s (Justina Machado) from school, who turns into something more.

A reimagining of Norman Lear’s classic sitcom, One Day at a Time follows three generations of a Cuban-American family navigating the ups and downs of life. A newly-single mom and military veteran journeys through the triumphs and tribulations that come with raising two strong-willed, mega-millennial children, all the while enlisting the “help” of her old-school mother and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidant.
