WORKIN’ MOMS looks at the polarizing and unexpected realities of the lives of a group of friends—all working moms—and their partners, as they adjust to life as parents. They might not be able to have it all, but they’re sure as hell going to try. Balance is everything. Production will continue in and around Toronto until October for a winter premiere on CBC.“We are thrilled to be back in production with CBC on the new season of Workin’ Moms,” said Catherine Reitman, creator and executive producer. “The response to season 1 was incredible and we’re excited to build on that momentum with our second season.”In season 2, WORKIN’ MOMS will continue to navigate the highs and lows of love, careers and motherhood with refreshing humour and naked honesty. Season 2 picks up as Kate faces the professional consequences of choosing her baby over her career. For Anne, a past relationship resurfaces; revealing a secret she and Lionel had kept from Alice. Frankie finds her way again without Giselle, and Ian and Jenny deal with their separation as Ian continues work on his screenplay.
