‘Workin' Moms’ Season 4 dropped on Netflix... and as much as fans were excited to watch it, they were disappointed when it ended soon enough. Too many viewers have been complaining about how short the season was and are demanding a new season now.

The Canadian television sitcom revolves around — Kate Foster (Catherine Reitman), Anne Carlson (Dani Kind), Frankie Coyne (Juno Ruddell), and Jenny Matthews (Jessalyn Wanlim) —  as a group of friends dealing with the challenges of being working mothers. Ever since it first premiered, the show has picked up a good fan base and while the first three seasons had 13 episodes each, the last one had only eight. No sooner did it drop on Netflix, fans binge-watched it and couldn't stop wondering if the episodes were shorter. 

All eight episodes on ‘Workin' Moms’ Season 4 were 23 minutes long each. "Wait so long for a new season just to sit down & finish it in under 3 hrs. Now begins the long wait for season 5 #WorkinMoms," one said while another posted, "Only 8 episodes... really?!?! #WorkinMoms."

A viewer asked, "Why was this season of #WorkinMoms so much shorter?" while another wondered, "Wtf why did they only have 8 episodes #WorkinMoms."
