Dating, drugs and other issues facing teenagers today crop up in season three of Netflix’s One Day at a Time.

A reimagining of Norman Lear’s 1975 sitcom, the comedy follows three generations of a Cuban-American family, focusing on single mom and military veteran Penelope (Justina Machado), raising Elena (Isabella Gomez) and Alex (Marcel Ruiz)—two strong-willed, mega-millennial children—all the while enlisting the “help” of her old-school mother Lydia (Rita Moreno) and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidant.

Season three finds Penelope with a new love interest, Elena coming up with a title for her non-binary girlfriend and Alex trying to justify vaping weed.

Netflix’s trailer also highlights guest star Gloria Estefan as Penelope’s estranged sister Mirtha, along with guest stars Stephanie Beatriz and Melissa Fumero of Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s, India de Beaufort (Kevin (Probably) Saves the World) and Alex Quijano (Fresh Off The Boat).

One Day at a Time premieres February 8 on Netflix.
