The ever-improving Candian comedy series returns once again in 2019, as the mothers continue to balance work, kids, romance and more besides.
I have no clue what Netflix is playing at with the Workin’ Moms release schedule. The second season only dropped in July after the first season’s premiere in January, and here we are today, with Workin’ Moms Season 3 now available globally. The good news is that the show continues to improve, throwing more obstacles in the way of Kate (Reitman), Anne (Dani Kind), Frankie (Juno Rinaldi) and Jenny (Jessalyn Wanlim) as they try to juggle work, their kids and romance.
An early focus of Workin’ Moms Season 3 is on the fallout of a bad breakup, especially where kids are involved. Forging ahead with a new business is one way of dealing with things, but trying to get back onto the horse, so to speak, can often end in tears, and emotion can often lead to irrationality, especially where kids — including a new one — are concerned.
Usual anxieties are dealt with too, including the beginnings of empty nest syndrome, as Workin’ Moms Season 3 begins to explore how mothers deal with their children growing up and not needing them anymore — especially when they’re growing up a little too fast.
It isn’t a revolutionary show, but Workin’ Moms has a wine quality to it — it gets better with age. Its characters have well-developed arcs that, as they’ve progressed, feel more representative of real-life rather than Sitcom Land. With what is apparently quite a large break scheduled between now and the fourth season, there’s plenty of time to catch up, with all three seasons available globally on Netflix.
