If you loved the first season of ‘The Cleaning Lady season 2’, you’ll be happy to know that the American crime drama is back. “A whip-smart Cambodian doctor comes to the U.S. for a medical treatment to save her son, but when the system fails and pushes her into hiding, she uses her cunning and intelligence to fight back, breaking the law for all the right reasons.” This show is based on the 2017 Argentina television show ‘La chica que limpia’.
Miranda Kwok developed as well as executive produced the show along with Rose Marie Vega, Paola Suárez, Shay Mitchell, David Dean Portelli, Michael Offer and Melissa Carter. The producers of the show are Stewart Lyons, Joe Lotito and Michael Notarile, in association with Fox Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television Studio.
There haven’t been many shows in the past that depicted the daily lives and struggles of undocumented workers. Of the very few that were made, there was a powerful “NCIS: New Orleans” episode that explored the experience in 2016, as well as Season 7 of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” in 2019. And thus, season 1 of this series offered viewers some insight into the struggles faced by victims of immigration policy, and how most often these sacrifices are for children’s or vulnerable people’s betterment.

The Cleaning Lady Season 2 Plot
A cliffhanger ended Season 1 involving Thony’s estranged husband Marco (Ivan Shaw) kidnapping their son for a possible return to the Philippines. It is unclear what the outcome of the cliffhanger will be, but showrunner Melissa Carter and writer/developer Miranda Kwok have discussed where the main character will go in Season 2.
Speaking to Deadline, Kwok said, “We’re definitely going to see a lot more grays with Thony and challenge her some more. A lot of circumstances are going to keep dragging her across the moral line. It’s just a matter of how far we go with her.” This new season will mainly focus on Thony searching for her son after he is kidnapped by Marco. She definitely does not stay true to her innocent cleaning lady personality!
As of now in season 2 we saw Thony (Yung) desperately trying to find her son, Luca, after he was kidnapped by his father, Marco (Ivan Shaw). With nowhere else to turn, she turns to an FBI Agent Garret Miller (Hudson) to track him down before they leave the country. Meanwhile, an incident involving Chris (Lew) forces Fiona (Millan) to shield her son by any means necessary, furthering the theme of how far a mother will go to protect her child.
