The Cleaning Lady Renewed for Season 4 at Fox Amid Backstage Shakeup

The Cleaning Lady has been renewed for a fourth season at Fox, where the search for a new showrunner is underway.

According to our sister site Deadline, which first broke the news, Miranda Kwok, who developed the series, and Jeannine Renshaw, who served as co-showrunners on Season 3, will not be returning in that capacity for Season 4.

The renewal is reportedly for 12 episodes.

Season-to-date, The Cleaning Lady is averaging 2.2 million total viewers and a 0.2 demo rating (with Live+7 playback), down a steep 37% and 60% from its sophomore run.

The crime drama has been forced to pivot in its current third season, following the death of male lead Adan Canto in January after a battle with appendiceal cancer. Because the show’s writers had initially hoped to bring Canto back later in Season 3 after he’d completed treatment, his character, Arman Morales, was initially kidnapped in the season premiere and left offscreen, whereabouts unknown, for several episodes. Ultimately, in the season’s sixth outing, Arman briefly returned (via CGI trickery) to be brought home by his captors, but he perished when the vehicle transporting him swerved and fell off a cliff.

New episodes of The Cleaning Lady currently air Tuesdays at 8/7c on Fox. Our 2024 Renewal Scorecard has been updated with its Season 4 pickup.
