Another Netflix series appears to be coming to an end. Workin’ Moms, the hit Canadian sitcom, will be ending after its seventh season, according to a recent announcement. However, this isn’t just another Netflix show that has been axed. Honestly, I don’t think so.
The good news is that the show appears to be winding down on its own accord, and seven seasons is a respectable run for a television series. In particular, if it’s available on Netflix in the US. Fans of Workin’ Moms, on the other hand, will be saddened by this.
It’s worth noting that for those who are unfamiliar, Workin’ Moms is a sitcom that follows the lives of five real-life working mothers, including Catherine Reitman, Jessalyn Wanlim, Dani Kind, Enuka Okuma and Juno Rinaldi. Working mothers and members of the same mommy and me parenting club have brought these five women together in an unexpected friendship.
The episode focuses on the hardships and tribulations of being a working mother and the obstacles that brings. juggling the demands of a family and a profession, dealing with identity crises and postpartum depression, and dealing with the general mayhem that comes with raising young children are all challenges that new parents face.
Workin’ Moms has an IMDB rating of 7.7/10, which isn’t bad at all (opens in new tab). Rotten Tomatoes(opens in new tab) does not have a critical rating for the show, but its average audience score is 70%.
In an interview with Deadline, program creator Catherine Reitman said: “To our great fans, making this show has been the ride of my life” (opens in new tab). I began season one with Philip [Sternberg] and a three month old and two year old watching as we moved forward on one mission: to tell the stories of four flawed mothers who dared to be something beyond their nurseries,” she explains in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Working Moms creator Jason Reitman thanked the show’s cast and crew members, along with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Netflix for their support. Things must come to an end, and that’s why Workin’ Moms appears to be coming to an end.
As promised in season 6, all five women will be “confronting demons from their past” in order to “move ahead into their future” in season 7. According to Deadline, the five mothers must confront their past, present, and future selves, as well as the impact they will have on their children and their workplaces, as they try to figure out how they want to spend the rest of their lives.
As of this writing, Netflix has made the first six seasons of Workin’ Moms available to stream, with a seventh season expected to air somewhere in the winter of 2023.
