The New Mexico Film Office Announces FOX Series “The Cleaning Lady” Returns to New Mexico to Film Season 3

Santa Fe, NM -New Mexico Film Office Director Amber Dodson announced today that season three of the television series “The Cleaning Lady” is filming in and around Albuquerque.

Beginning Tuesday, Mar. 5 on FOX, season three of “The Cleaning Lady” will continue filming the emotionally-driven character drama about a whip-smart Cambodian doctor, Thony (played by series’ star Élodie Yung), who comes to the U.S. for medical treatment to save her ailing son. When the system fails and attempts to push her down, Thony refuses to be marginalized and instead takes matters into her own hands. Forced to use unconventional measures to protect her family and save the ones she loves, Thony further crosses the moral line as she gets more deeply entwined in the criminal underbelly of Las Vegas, NV. 

“The Cleaning Lady” continues to examine the plight of undocumented immigrants and explores the struggles and triumphs of the human spirit. It is a story of empowerment, resilience, and hope, asking us all if the ends justify the means. 

The stakes in season three of “The Cleaning Lady” are higher and more intense than ever, from the mystery of Arman’s whereabouts to Thony’s efforts to bring Fiona back to the US after was deported to the Philippines. As Thony’s journey continues to unfold, she is entirely alone. Her world is turned upside down as she fights to protect her family, forcing her to take steps that deepen a new association with a dangerous cartel.

“The Cleaning Lady” is based on the original Argentine series produced by Warner Bros. Television and FOX Entertainment. Miranda Kwok (“The 100”) developed the series. Miranda Kwok and Jeannine Renshaw (“Grey’s Anatomy”) will serve as showrunners and executive producers of season three. Rose Marie Vega and Paola Suárez also are executive producers. Shay Mitchell (“You”) and David Dean Portelli are executive consultants. 

“The economic impact of this series is significant,” Dodson stated. “For the third consecutive season, ‘The Cleaning Lady’ continues to employ New Mexico’s top-tier workforce, showcase our state’s diverse landscapes, and utilize soundstages and local businesses to create Las Vegas, NV, and Manila, Philippines for the screen. The return of this acclaimed series to New Mexico is a testament to our state’s robust film ecosystem that attracts ‘return customers’ year after year, directly benefiting our residents, businesses, and communities."

The production will employ approximately 256 New Mexico crew members, 6 New Mexico principal actors, and approximately 2,384 New Mexico background talent.
