The seventh and final season of “Workin’ Moms,” created by and starring Catherine Reitman, first aired on April 26th, 2023. With much glorification from viewers, many consider it the best season yet, even compared to the sixth season. (I’m right there with them).
The series follows four moms, Kate (Reitman) and Anne (Dani Kind), married to Ryan Belleville, Frankie (Juno Rinaldi), and Valerie (Sarah McVie). In this series, they realize that their lives will move forward despite their challenges with their children.
Everyone I know who has watched “Workin’ Moms” can’t stop singing its praises, and I am with them.
It’s easy to see why the show has been receiving rave reviews! With its reflection on real-life issues, such as postpartum depression, the difficulties of teenage years, and the need for balance between parenting and personal ambition, and a triumphant finale.
“Workin’ Moms” wraps up its seven seasons of hilarious yet heartfelt storylines.
Why Fans Agree That This Workin’ Moms Season 7 is the Best Yet
The finale of Season 7 was met with nothing but positivity from critics and fans alike. It fulfilled the show’s promise, which has been to explore the highs and lows of motherhood in a funny yet touching way (and it gives us the closure we need), addressing real-life issues parents face.
Reflection of Real-Life Issues: The show also speaks to real-life issues faced by parents, where they talk about things like postpartum depression, the difficulties of teenage years, and the need for balance between parenting and personal ambition.
The Comedic Approach of Workin’ Moms Season 7
When I pick a series, I look for something that will positively impact my life, in other words (something profound). That’s precisely why “Workin’ Moms‘” comedic approach to real life shocked me when I discovered that I adore each character so much!
The comedy aspect of the show is spot on and had me laughing out loud in almost every episode. Each character is unique and relatable in their own way, making the show so enjoyable (for moms like me) to watch.
Kate, the main character, married to Philip Sternberg, is a show in itself, with a past failed marriage and then a reunion, a stepchild she didn’t know about, which made me connect with her daily struggle on a personal level.
Sloane, a force in the business world for women, is a working mom who struggles with being away from her baby while at work. In season 7, she finds a love interest and has to navigate her new partner while battling childhood trauma.
Her comedic timing is perfect, and she brings a lot of heart to the show.
Amped up Anne, another character, is happily married. Her obstacles in season 7 are her “difficult to handle” teenage daughter and her recent car accident that impacts her mental health. However, this is portrayed through dry humor, and sarcastic remarks made me chuckle whenever she was on screen.
Anne puts Alice through a difficult time with her overprotective nature and anxieties – but don’t worry, Anne bounces back and shows us her true, lovable character.
Each of these characters, and more, bring so much to the table! Whether it’s when “Crazy” Anne guides Sloane, Anne resolves issues with Kate, or Alice’s party reveals’ all. This tell-all tv tale is one for the books!

The finale highlights the importance of friendship as a support system. Although life as a parent can have its hardships, the four moms come to realize that they will always have each other’s support whether their parenting journeys have been successful or not.
2 Parenting Doesn’t Stand in the Way of Your Goals
It’s easy for us all to agree that becoming a new parent fades the beautiful hues of life, but “Workin’ Moms” seasons 1-7 remind us that parenting does not have to stop you from achieving your goals.
