Created by Catherine Reitman, ‘Workin’ Moms’ is a Canadian sitcom that revolves around a group of friends in Toronto, Canada. They are working mothers who try hard to keep each other afloat in times of crisis and navigate each day to the best of their abilities. The series first premiered on January 10, 2017, on CBC. In February 2019, it was also released internationally on Netflix. The comedy series has mostly been received well by the critics and the audiences for its focus on women trying to balance motherhood with other aspects of their lives.
However, a few critics pointed out that the privilege and entitlement of the main characters separate them from the lived experiences of most women. Still, this has not stopped people from loving the series for its wit and irony. It has particularly garnered praise for the chemistry between Catherine Reitman (Kate Foster) and Dani Kind (Anne Carlson). The fans can’t seem to get enough of the show even after five seasons as they eagerly await updates on the potential season 6. So, here is everything we have for you!

Typically, a new instalment arrives in the winter at the beginning of each year. A season requires 8-11 months of production time before new episodes begin to roll out in the home country. Although it was challenging to work through the pandemic, the release schedule for season 5 largely remained unaffected. The production for the fifth season reportedly began in September 2020 before debuting in Canada in February 2021. If the upcoming season follows the same schedule, fans can expect ‘Workin’ Moms’ season 6 to release sometime in early 2022.
