While many of our most recent Netflix watches have been quite light and fluffy (we're looking at you, Sex/Life), Margaret Qualley's Maid is anything but.

The 10-part show dropped on 1 October 2021 and tells the story of single mother Alex, who turns to housecleaning to make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and builds a better life for her daughter.

Many viewers have praised the series, which is based on a true story, for its raw and honest portrayal of coercive control. Others have applauded the brilliant acting from Margaret, Andie McDowell, Nick Robinson and Raymond Ablack.

Which is probably why there's so much interest in a potential second season of the show. Will Netflix do a follow-up to Maid? Here's what we know so far.

Has Netflix's Maid season 2 been confirmed?

Sadly, no. Maid is currently marketed as a limited series, which makes a second season feel unlikely, especially given how the first season ends. But that doesn't mean it's definitely off the cards - Big Little Lies started off as a limited series, but as we now know, a third season is in the works.

How did Netflix's Maid season 1 end?

The final episode saw Alex and daughter Maddy starting their new life in Missoula, Montana, with a spot at college reserved for her. Sean had relinquished control of both his former partner and his daughter, and Alex finally has the freedom to explore life on her own terms.

So, where would that leave a season two? Well, maybe we'd see the new challenges Alex faces as a mother juggling work and education, or explore Maddy's character as a teenager. Or maybe we could delve into Shaun or Paula's characters a bit more in their own spin-offs.

Who would star in Netflix's Maid season 2?

If it were to happen, we can expect all the main characters from season one to make an appearance. Alex (Margaret Qualley) and Maddy (Rylea Nevaeh Whittet) plus Sean (Nick Robinson) and Alex's mum Paula (Andie MacDowell), pus, Regina (Anika Noni Rose) and Alex's dad Hank (Billy Burke.)
