The American comedy-drama Maid has landed on Netflix, starring Margaret Qualley, Nick Robinson, Anika Noni Rose, Andie MacDowell, Tracy Vilar, and Billy Burke, and fans are already enquiring about the possibility of season 2.
Inspired by the memoir, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay and a Mother’s Will to Survive, by Stephanie Land, Maid follows Alex (Qualley) who escapes an abusive relationship as a young mother to find a job cleaning houses.
Will Maid return for season 2?
No, it is not expected that Maid will return for a second season on Netflix.
Created by Molly Smith Metzler, Maid was ordered and promoted as a limited series, which usually means that the narrative will conclude in one season.
Some shows on other streaming platforms have broken this rule and ordered a second season after being billed as a limited series or miniseries. However, Maid is not expected to follow this route.

Maid has 10 episodes in total making up its first and only season and we’ve outlined the episode titles below:

Season 1 reviews
Early reviews for Maid are largely favorable with Rotten Tomatoes issuing the series a 100% approval rating and Metacritic awarding it a score of 84.
The Guardian praised Maid for its “detail, the tenderness, the authenticity” and had a minor quibble about the physical labor of cleaning not being presented accurately.
Qualley and MacDowell’s on-screen relationship was also praised, stepping into the show as a real-life mother and daughter.
