'Workin' Moms' season 3 review: The mothers try hard to balance children, love and work as plenty of obstacles threaten to derail their plans
Dani Kind, Catherine Reitman, and Juno Rinaldi take another dive into expressing the reality of moms who love their work and their children
'Workin Moms' Anne, Kate, and Frankie are back on Netflix for another season. The three leads who are played by Dani Kind, Catherine Reitman, and Juno Rinaldi take another dive into expressing the reality of moms who love their work and their children.
Premiering on August 27, on Netflix, the show gives us a look at what's happening with the crew of 'Workin Moms'. Kate has opened her own public relations business which we were all aware of was going to happen this season. After finding a new firm to represent her, she goes ahead and with great determination established Kate Foster's PR business along with a new office. Her personal life had hit a rough patch at the end of season two when she found out that Nathan ( Philip Sternberg) was cheating on her with their child's nanny Renya (Jess Salgueiro). It was not only a shocker for Kate but even for fans of the show. It had inspired a lot of chatter on social media. Fans had even tweeted in favor of Lionel ( Ryan Belleville), Anne's newly committed husband and hated on Nathan by saying "In this world...Be a #Lionel not a # Nathan. Nathan really didn’t deserve his wife. I hope she chops his balls off ! #workinmoms #netflix".
With Kate's marriage falling apart she decided to move out and live on her own with Charlie her son being taken care of by both of them. However, for Kate things just keep happening as she also gets to know she is pregnant again with her second child. In this new season, she gives birth to a girl and names her Ella but then decides to punish Nathan by keeping him away from his daughter. Nathan tries to convince her that her decision to move out and keep their daughter away from him was not fair and he finally gets a chance to see her after two months when Kate feels it's okay for him to be with his baby girl. The season's initial focus seems to be on her personal life as we see her work getting off to a slow start and establishing the 'Kate Foster' PR firm in the market is turning out to be a tough ask. Amidst this, she tries her hand at dating once more and ends up with her ex-boss's son Forrest (Donald MacLean Jr.) which doesn't turn out as planned leading her to rethink on working out things Nathan as she still loves him.
Our other mother, Anne is going through this whole protective mother phase with her growing up her daughter Alice ( Sadie Munroe). She wants to be a part of her daughter's life way more than ever now as she realizes that Alice is getting older and needs to know how to protect herself and get out of bad situations and be tough when the need arises. On the work front, Anne takes a job at the school as a psychiatrist but soon feels burdened by the job and is aching for a break.
Frankie (Juno Rinaldi), good old Frankie, however, is all fun and calm. She has become very studious and ambitious and has turned Rhoda ( Frankie and Grace's daughter) into her highest priority. Her new focus in life has brought her money, her own house and now all she wants to find is new love after playing the field last season and dating two women. It is amidst this search that she comes across her neighbor Bianca ( Tennille Read). Bianca wants to be a mother and Frankie becomes her support system who helps her go through the whole process of getting an egg donor and helps her in her journey. When Frankie finds out that all went well for Bianca and she is pregnant she begins to feel like she has fallen in love with Bianca.
While we didn't see much of Jenny last season, in season 3 we find her still living life on her own terms and enjoying it. She begins to seek more attention and approval at work by trying to impress her boss and colleagues so that she can quickly climb the ladders of success. However, Ian, her husband, has been pushed under the bus by Jenny as she tells everyone that he's the reason that their relationship didn't work out and that he is the one who keeps their daughter away from her.
The season effectively shows how it's not just the children that are growing on the show but the 'Workin' Moms' as well. With season 3 currently streaming, fans will not have to wait long for season 4. The release of Season 4 will be sometime in Winter 2020, which will premiere globally on Netflix.
