Workin’ Moms Ending with Season Seven

Wolf + Rabbit Entertainment has revealed that the upcoming seventh season of the CBC and Netflix comedy series Workin’ Moms will be the show’s last.

Created and executive produced by Catherine Reitman (Black-ish, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), the show offers an unflinching look at the realities of life as a mom, partner and friend. The new season will pick up where season six left off, with the women confronting the demons of their past in order to move forward into their future.

Season seven is currently shooting in and around Toronto and will premiere on CBC and CBC Gem in winter 2023, followed by a global release on Netflix. Produced by Wolf + Rabbit, the series is created with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund and Netflix.

Reitman reprises her role as the lead, joined by Dani Kind, Jessalyn Wanlim, Philip Sternberg, Ryan Belleville, Sarah McVie, Sadie Munroe, Peter Keleghan, Nikki Duval and Enuka Okuma.

Workin’ Moms is executive produced by Reitman, Philip Sternberg (Six Little McGhees), Jonathan A. Walker (Between, Trailer Park Boys), Tina Horwitz and Joe Sorge (Wild Yellowstone). For season seven, Jessie Gabe (Mr. D, Being Erica) and Karen Kicak (Mary Kills People, Detention Adventure) are showrunners, as well as executive producers.

“To our incredible fans, making this show has been the ride of my life,” Reitman said. “Philip and I hit the ground day one of season one, with a three-month-old and a two-year-old, watching as we pressed forward on one mission: to tell the stories of four flawed mothers, who dared to be something beyond their nurseries. Going to work every day, whether in the room with our brilliant writers, on set with our extraordinary cast or in post with the best producing team in the business, has cemented in me the importance of telling stories that have meaning, surrounded by artisans who get it. But like any story, there must be an ending. And so, it is with love and gratitude that I’m announcing season seven as our final season. The biggest thank you to our partners, CBC and Netflix, for getting behind a show that points a flashlight into the darkest corners of motherhood. To those of you who’ve stopped me on the street, to share your love of the show: I see you. I hear you. And I thank you. Go get ’em mamas…”

“Over seven remarkable seasons, Workin’ Moms has brought laughter to audiences the world over while also shining a light on the delicate balance of personal connections—with our children, our partners, our friends and our colleagues—and the internal struggle to maintain a sense of self,” said Sally Catto, general manager of entertainment, factual and sports at CBC. “The dedicated international fan base and critical acclaim is evidence that Workin’ Moms has more than hit the mark. It has been a delight and an honor to partner with Catherine—an immeasurable talent, in front of and behind the camera—Philip and the incredibly talented Workin’ Moms team. This is a series that will undoubtedly continue to connect with audiences for years to come. While it will be bittersweet to say goodbye to these unforgettable characters, we are excited for audiences to watch this brilliant final season.”
