Everyone's favorite Canadian show Workin' Moms is back on Netflix for Season 4!

Ever since the series premiered on the streaming platform in 2019, fans have applauded this sitcom and the way it relentlessly addresses the often unseen struggles of parenthood.

And in Season 3, we got to learn more about Frankie's young fling Juniper — who polarized fans from the moment she was introduced. "Juniper is the worst!" one viewer writes on reddit, adding, "I cringe every time she is on screen from her sheer stupidity." Meanwhile, others "actually really like her. She seems good-natured and willing to help."

So, who is Juniper on Workin' Moms? Keep reading for everything you need to know about her character, and the actress who plays her.

Juniper plays Frankie's very young and naive ex-girlfriend.

We first met Juniper in Season 2, when realtor Frankie Coyne was juggling this young lover with Dorothy, her older dominatrix. But Juniper's relationship with Frankie flourishes and develops into a friendship over the course of Season 3. 

Eventually Juniper's immaturity starts to weigh on Frankie, and moves her to realize that she might need a more stable relationship in her life.

Meanwhile, Frankie finds love in a bout of postpartum while living with her brother, and meets Tennille Read's Bianca who become close friends. Frankie eventually helps Bianca get pregnant, and while she isn't able to use her own eggs, Frankie enlists her old fling Juniper, who also needs financial help for her education, to donate an egg.

Frankie and now-pregnant Bianca are becoming a little more than friends — which almost didn't fly with Frankie's ex, Giselle, who wasn't into their daughter being raised in an ultra-religious household.

But things have cooled off leading up to Season 4, and these days Frankie, Giselle, Bianca, Juniper and Roda are one big, happy queer family.
