Netflix limited series are generally standalone, meaning it's unlikely further series' will be in the works.

What's more, the series is based on a book based on atrue events - so any future seasons would need more of the story to be written.

What is Maid about?

The official synopsis reads: "Maid follows the story of Alex, a single mother who turns to housecleaning to — barely — make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy. Seen through the emotional yet humorous lens of a desperate but determined woman, this series is a raw and inspiring exploration of a mother’s resilience."
