We hardly ever see enough stories of working mothers and the Canadian television series 'Workin' Moms' created by and starring Catherine Reitman is a breath of fresh air. The show chronicles the trials and tribulations of four women who juggle everything from their children to their romantic lives and of course, their careers.

It was recently announced that the show was renewed for a fifth season, so read on to know more about it.


Release date

Each season of 'Workin' Moms' originally airs on CBC TV during the first quarter of the year before coming to Netflix later on. The writers have already begun working on the fifth season.

Filming for Season 4 -- which premiered on CBC in February 2020 -- began in July 2019. Assuming the restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic are lowered by July this year, we can expect a similar premiere date for the fifth season. Viewers in the United States could expect Season 5 to come to Netflix in spring or summer 2021.



Season 4 went well for some of our characters, however, for others, it was a bit more tumultuous. Things went mostly well for Kate Foster, who handled some tough situations at work with her former flame, Mike Bolinski (Victor Webster). She chose her husband Nathan (Philip Sternberg) over Mike and it looked like she made the right decision.

Meanwhile, Anne Carlson, who started out in something like a war with her daughter, ended up learning how to work with her as well, even writing a book that was loved by her agent. Unfortunately, due to the family needing money, Anne and her family will be moving to another city.


Jenny Matthews tried to start her own revolution when she realized that the women in her office were not getting paid as much as the men. Though she was later berated for taking hush money, she managed to get the management to compromise and in doing so, she may now even be having an affair. 

Finally, Frankie Coyne is going to become a mother again, after Bianca (Tennille Read) asked her to be the "other mom" to her baby. Frankie did a tremendous job in Season 4 in revealing to Bianca that her sperm donor was a con artist.
