There will be no Frankie in Season 6 of Workin’ Moms. Juno Rinaldi, who has played the role of real estate agent Frankie Coyne for five seasons, made the announcement on Instagram Thursday morning.
“To my dear cast, crew, friends, families and fans of the show. I have made the hard decision not to return to Workin’ Moms this season,” she wrote.
“As an artist I felt like it was time to pursue other creative opportunities as an actor and different opportunities in other mediums within the business (specifically, writing and producing). Frankie was a role of a lifetime. Deep gratitude goes out to @reitcatou for taking a chance on a nobody like me. I had 5 glorious seasons with truly incredible people and now I am so excited to see where Workin’ Moms goes next , I know it’s going to be fantastic!
All my love. Juno.”
Rinaldi’s post was quickly answered by her Workin’ Moms co-star, show co-creator, director and executive producer Catherine Reitman, who wrote:
“Telling these stories without Frankie this season was hard. Your spirit will be missed more than you know. But I speak for many when I say, we can’t wait to see what’s on the horizon for you ❤️ Sending you all the good stuff and more #teamfrankieforlife”
Earlier this summer, CBC announced that Season 6 of Workin’ Moms would return in the winter.
