We’re going to miss this show
After seven amazing seasons, Workin’ Moms is coming to a close. Just this past week, creator and actor Catherine Reitman wrapped up the series and from under a sheen of Gatorade, where she addressed her team and shared the video on Instagram.
“I’m shaking, guys. To say that I’m overwhelmed is such an understatement. Nine years ago I had a little boy who was in today’s episode, Jackson (you were all so patient and generous with him). And I didn’t feel like myself anymore. Phil and I were really struggling to find any content out there that represented that. That showed how f-cked up having kids can be.”
And that’s why we are so hooked on Workin’ Moms.
She went on thank the people at CBS who took a chance on her and her show. “It doesn’t even makes sense. But then of course it does, because we are here together celebrating the fact that that these stories are so much bigger than me. They’re so much bigger than Philip and Jackson or any hilarious or stupid experience I ever had as a mother. I really believe that this show was meant to happen. I feel really, really lucky that I got to do it. And I feel even more lucky that I got to do it with you.”
After wrapping the season, Reitman talking to brother and shared just what makes a show like this so special and important. “We all get to witness the magic of something before millions and millions of people connect with it and laugh, or are horrified, or however they’re going to react to it. And the show, way beyond me and its extraordinary writers and extraordinary crew the show has worked. And millions of people are watching.”
At the end of the day, Reitman’s desire to make something about life as a working mom wormed its way into our hearts, and if we admit it, we’re kinda sad that’s about to end. In the meantime, we’ll drown our sorrows as we binge watch seasons one through six on Netflix, eagerly awaiting the seventh and final season.
