Should I Watch It? Maid, the new Netflix drama you won’t be able to stop thinking about.

Come for the…

The gripping plot that’s so real that it hurts.

Stay for the…

The outstanding cast.

What shows will it remind you of?

Shameless for the raw portrayal of poverty, and Big Little Lies for the often hidden nature of abuse.

How many episodes are there and how long are they?

There are 10 episodes, ranging from 45 to 60 minutes long. All 10 episodes of Maid are available to watch on Netflix now.

Will there be a second season?

Maid was based on Stephanie Land’s memoir, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive.

As Maid is a limited series, Netflix hasn’t renewed the drama series.

Speaking to Decider, series creator Molly Smith Metzler confirmed a continuation of Alex’s story is out of the question.

However, she didn’t completely rule out a second season.

“I do think there’s a lot of maids out there, there’s a lot of domestic workers who are experiencing stories that are as bad, if not worse than, Stephanie Land’s,” Metzler said. 

“I think it would be very exciting and a dream world to get to see a different maid’s story in another season. Someone from a totally different geographic with totally different life experience and who probably is a mum.”
