The Cleaning Lady will be returning to clean up more of the mob’s messes. It has been announced that Fox has renewed the series for a second season.
In The Cleaning Lady, Élodie Yung stars as Thony, “a whip-smart doctor who comes to the U.S. for a medical treatment to save her ailing son. But when the system fails and pushes her into hiding, she refuses to be beaten down and marginalized. Instead, she becomes a cleaning lady for the mob and starts playing the game by her own rules.” The series also stars Adan Canto, Oliver Hudson, Martha Millan, Jay Mohr, Liza Weil, and Shiva Negar.
The Cleaning Lady has proven to be a decent-sized hit for Fox. Per Deadline, the series is a Top 5 new broadcast drama of the 2021-22 season with the number one largest total multi-platform audience for a new Fox show this season. It marked Fox’s highest-rated drama premiere in two years as well as Hulu’s most-streamed Fox debut in the network’s history. When it debuted in January, the show earned a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.56 million viewers in Live+Same Day. Over time, the debut has pulled in 11.9 total viewers across multiple platforms for the network’s most-watched drama debut in two years. Michael Thorn, President of Fox Entertainment, had this to say about the renewal:
“This heart-pounding, emotionally driven story has captivated audiences across all platforms with its empowering, suspenseful narrative about an undocumented worker forced to navigate the criminal underworld to save her ailing son’s life. The Cleaning Lady bravely and unapologetically takes on many of today’s most important social issues—something we’re proud to say is one of FOX’s long-time calling cards—and it’s all brought into sharp perspective by the powerful performance of our lead, Élodie Yung and the entire cast. Thanks to the incredible talent of Miranda and Melissa and our outstanding partners at Warner Bros., audiences have embraced this story and can now look forward to finding out what comes next for this devoted mother and her son when our show returns for its second season.”
I’ve heard good things about this show and now that it’s coming back for a second season, I guess it’s time to this one the binge treatment.
