Even though some of the cast has moved on (including Juno Rinaldi, who played Frankie Coyne), there’s still plenty of laughs to be had with this group of Toronto mothers as they deal with kids, bosses, love, and life in the sixth season of the hit Canadian comedy Workin’ Moms, which is available on Netflix.
Catherine Reitman plays Kate Foster, a public relations executive who struggles to succeed at home and in the workplace.
The show stars Dani Kind, Jessalyn Wanlim, and Enuka Okuma in addition to Reitman, and it airs on CBC Television in Canada and on Netflix across the world.
The Cast of Workin Moms
As Kate Foster, Catherine Reitman is Played by an Actor.
Who is this Kate Foster person, anyway? Kate is a businesswoman who, along with her husband Nathan, is raising their two children, Charlie and Ella. She is a Toronto-based public relations professional who, in Season 3, founded her own agency.
Who or what is it that brings Catherine Reitman to mind? In addition to his performances on Black-ish and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Reitman is also well-known for his appearances on How I Met Your Mother and Other Stories. Friends with Benefits and Knocked Up are only two of the movies in which she has appeared.
Anne Carlson, Played by Dani Kind.
What is Anne Carlson’s deal? The common law wife of Lionel Carlson and the mother of his daughters Alice and Jayme, Anne is a psychotherapist.
Anne has difficulty controlling her wrath, so in season 4 she abandoned her job to write her book, Punishment: The Ultimate Reward.
Do I recognize Dani Kind from somewhere? Kind has been on several shows than Workin’ Moms, including Wynonna Earp, Saving Hope, and Coroner, among others.
In the Role of Jenny Matthews, Jesalyn Wanlim Shines.
Explain who Jenny Matthews is. Jenny, an IT expert who just divorced their husband Ian and found parenthood challenging at first, had a difficult time adjusting to the role.
What’s the deal with Jessalyn Wanlim? Wanli has starred in a number of popular TV shows, including Orphan Black, Lab Rats, and Scoundrels, as well as the movies Frenemies and In My Dreams.
Taking Over the Role of Sloane Mitchell is Enuka Okuma.
Exactly who is Sloane Mitchell? In season 5, publishing executive Sloane joins the group and quickly becomes close with Kate.

Tell me where I’ve seen Enuka Okuma previously. Okuma’s acting credits include 24 and the medical dramas Grey’s Anatomy and Steven Universe.
Nathan Foster, Played by Philip Sternberg
Explain who Nathan Foster is. Married to Kate, Nathan is Kate’s spouse. At one point he was unfaithful to her because he was jealous of her success in the professional world.
After she finds out that he has a teenage son from a previous relationship, things start to get more difficult in their marriage as season 6 begins.
I feel like I’ve met Philip Sternberg somewhere before. Though he has appeared in films like Southland Tales, Reitman’s real-life husband Sternberg is better known for his work as a producer on shows like Six Little McGhees and Farmer Wants a Wife.
Val (Valeria) Szalinsky (Sarah Mcvie)
Find out more about Valerie “Val” Szalinsky. All the moms knew each other through Val, the Mommy and Me group’s organizer, who is always ready with sound advice.
Sarah McVie seems familiar, but who is she? McVie has starred in several films, including American Gods and The Handmaid’s Tale, but she is best recognized for her role in Workin’ Moms.
As Lionel Carlson, Ryan Belleville Does an Excellent Job.
I have never heard of Lionel Carlson before. In addition to being Anne’s devoted and eccentric husband, Lionel can also get quite emotional.
Just where have I seen Ryan Belleville before? Among the many shows, she has guest starred on include Wynonna Earp, Hotel Transylvania, and Almost Heroes.
Workin Moms storyline
The women of Workin’ Moms are seen as they attempt to balance personal relationships, professional endeavors, and the demands of raising children. As they face the unexpected, they encourage, push, and strive not to judge one another.
They take the good with the bad, whether it’s an identity problem, a major employment opportunity, postpartum depression, or unwanted pregnancy.
Kate is the series’ damaged yet fearless protagonist, and she faces difficult domestic and personal choices throughout the show. Anne, her closest friend and a no-nonsense psychiatrist and mother of two, is relying on her for support as she deals with a significant family issue.
Frankie, despite her own inconsistencies and personal woes, is charming and unpredictable enough to brighten any dull moment. Jenny, a nice alumna of her sorority, is looking for a rude shock.
Altogether, the women face the sometimes-contentious and always-unpredictable realities of working motherhood without flinching.
Love, work, and motherhood are just a few of the many responsibilities that four women must balance. When unexpected events like an identity crisis, postpartum depression, a great job opportunity, or an unforeseen pregnancy arise, they are there for one another, challenging and supporting one another without judgment. They are able to take the good and bad times in stride.
