'Workin' Moms' Season 4 Ending Explained: Will Anne really move away and is Jenny cheating on Ian?

'Workin' Moms' Season 4 Ending Explained: Will Anne really move away and is Jenny cheating on Ian?

Spoiler alert for 'Workin' Moms' Season 4

Workin' Moms' is originally a Canadian series that premiered on CBC. However, for the rest of the world, the fourth season of the comedy-drama was released on Netflix on May 6.

The show — created by Catherine Reitman who also stars as Kate Foster — follows a group of (as the title suggests) working mothers, as they try to juggle their families, their romance lives, and more importantly, their careers.


In Season 4 of the show, we see each of the moms deal with different things — as usual — so let's go through their Season 4 plots and what could be expected for them in the already-confirmed Season 5.

Kate balances all

The biggest question we had regarding Kate Foster (Catherine Reitman) as we went into Season 4 was whether she chose to remain with her husband, Nathan (Philip Sternberg) or to be with Mike Bolinski (Victor Webster).


We soon got an answer in the first episode as it was shown that Kate did choose Nathan — and it looks like she made the right choice. Throughout Season 4, we saw Nathan be the supportive husband that Kate deserved and through all ups and downs, he was there for her.

Kate's story in Season 4 wrapped up really well, except when we learned that Anne Carlson (Dani Kind) was moving away.

Anne learns to compromise

Season 3 ended on a rough note for Anne after she learned that her 13-year-old daughter, Alice, was a pathological liar. To punish her daughter, Anne signed Alice up for as many classes as she could -- this way, Alice would be too tired to lie. Anne was also writing a book on parenting, focusing on punishing.


However, by the end of the season, Anne learns to work with her daughter, rather than against her. She eventually learns that Alice was bullied in school and helps her daughter confront the boy responsible. She also changes the theme of her book which would now be about letting her adolescent "run her own train."

However, the biggest shock of the season came when Anne's husband, Lionel (Ryan Belleville) — who had spent the season being the work-at-home father trying to find his passion — announced that he got a job and hence, they had to move to Calgary. Suffice to say, Anne and Kate's farewell in the final episode was heartbreaking.


Jenny knows how to win

Of the quartet, Jenny Matthews (Jessalyn Wanlim) is the go-getter of the group. In this season, we saw Jenny go on a crusade of sorts when she learned that the female employees in her company were being paid disproportionately when compared to the men.

Of course, Jenny tries to start her own revolution — #MeTime — but ends up backing off when her boss, Malcolm Cody Patrick (Alex Mallari Jr.) gives her a raise. Malcolm also happens to be the dad Jenny meets regularly in the park as they flirt with each other by insulting each other.


When Jenny is called out by her fellow employees, she takes a different route and ends up starting a revolution after all. She gets Malcolm to agree to start a daycare facility in the office. When they later meet up at the park, the two end up making out. What does this mean for Jenny's husband, Ian (Dennis Andres)?

Frankie becomes a mom... again

When Frankie Coyne (Juno Rinaldi) met Bianca (Tennille Read) in the last season, the two women became fast friends with Frankie asking the pregnant woman to move in with her.

In this season, Frankie finds Bianca's sperm donor, but when he ends up becoming a con artist — something Bianca refused to believe at first — Frankie was on a mission to find him.

This prompted Bianca to tell Frankie that the latter was the father that her baby needed and even asks Frankie to be "the other mom." 


For the most part, it may seem like 'Workin' Moms' ended on a round note because the makers did not know the show would be renewed. However, there will be a Season 5 and we really hope that Anne does not move away. 

Season 4 of 'Workin' Moms' is now streaming on Netflix.
