Netflix’s revival of One Day at a Time made a name for itself this year and managed to thrive outside the shadow of the the ’70s sitcom on which it’s based. Now, the show is paying homage to the original series in a clever promo announcing its Jan. 26 Season 2 premiere date.

The new cast, including Justina Machado and Rita Moreno, participated in a shot-by-shot reenactment of the opening credits to the original show, which ran from 1975-1984 and starred Bonnie Franklin, Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli.

The Netflix revival, one of this year’s most critically acclaimed new TV shows, centers around at a three-generation Cuban-American family, including a single mom and military vet (Machado) as well as her mother (Moreno) and two kids. While Franklin had two daughters in the original series, Machado has one daughter and one son in the reboot.

For comparison, here are the original show’s credits:

The reboot’s regular opening credits feature a Cuban-themed update of the original’s “This Is It” theme song, which is now sung by Gloria Estefan.
