Since it was released on Netflix on 1 October 2021, moving drama, Maid, has become one of the most watched and talked about releases on the streaming platform. Following the story of a mother of a young child who leaves her abusive boyfriend and has to tackle poverty, homelessness and the complex social security system in America just to survive, the show has gained critical and public praise for its sensitive and gritty portrayal of a very difficult situation.
Based on the book Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land, the story has many elements based in true experiences and paints a bleak portrait of the way many in the lowest paid areas of the economy must struggle to survive.
The Netflix limited series stars Margaret Qualley in a brilliant lead performance as Alex, with a fantastic supporting cast, including Andie MacDowell, Margaret’s own mother, playing Paula, Alex’s mother in the show.
Such has been the interest in the show, fans are already asking whether or not there will be a Maid season two, but for now, here’s what you need to know about the season one episodes…
