‘The Cleaning Lady’ Gets Season 4 Renewal at Fox

Fox has renewed crime drama The Cleaning Lady for a fourth season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Along with the renewal will come a change in leadership as executive producers and showrunners Miranda Kwok and Jeannine Renshaw will not be continuing in those roles, sources told THR. Kwok, who developed the series, will continue on as an executive consultant, sources noted, adding that she plans to focus on new program development with Warner Bros. Television. The search for a new showrunner is said to be under way, with an announcement expected in the coming weeks.

Based on the original Argentine series, The Cleaning Lady centers on Thony De La Rosa (Élodie Yung), a Cambodian-Filipino former surgeon who is currently working and living in Las Vegas on an expired visa with her 5-year-old son Luca. Thony makes a living as a cleaning service worker alongside her sister-in-law, Fiona (Martha Millan). After witnessing a murder, Thony is offered a job both as a cleaner and a doctor within a criminal organization that could pay well enough to help her son and her family. As a result, Thony begins living a double life, keeping secrets from her family, while cleaning up crime scenes and evading the law.

The cast also includes Élodie Yung, Martha Millan, Eva De Dominici, Kate Del Castillo, Santiago Cabrera, Sean Lew, Faith Bryant and Sebastien & Valentino LaSalle.

The news of the renewal comes a few months after the death of one of the show’s stars, Adam Canto. The actor died in January of appendiceal cancer at age 42 (he had not made the diagnosis public).

Fox touts the show as “one of the most diverse series on TV” (the cast includes actors of Cambodian, Filipino, Chinese, Mexican, Argentinian and Chilean descent, among others) and notes that it’s the first Southeast Asian-led drama series and the first starring a lead of Cambodian descent. 

The Cleaning Lady is averaging 3.6 million multiplatform viewers this season, a lift of +131% from Live + Same Day. The two-hour Season 3 finale will air May 21.

The show is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Fox Entertainment. Rose Marie Vega and Paola Suarez also are executive producers. Shay Mitchell and David Dean Portelli are executive consultants.
