EXCLUSIVE: Fox’s The Cleaning Lady is bulking up its Season 3 cast with the addition of Brandon Jay McLaren (Snowfall, The Rookie) and JB Tadena (Kung Fu) in recurring roles. Season 3 will premiere on Tuesday, March 5 on Fox at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
McLaren will portray Jeremy Dolan, the guy we all wish we knew. He’s charming, smart, affable and can put anyone at ease, including Thony (Élodie Yung) whom he has an instant connection. Jeremy enters the world of The Cleaning Lady as a contractor-turned-entrepreneur, building his business with a personal approach. His openness about his life and his carpentry skills keep Jeremy in Thony’s orbit as she comes to rely on him for help. But below his trustworthy, charismatic façade lurks a sinister secret about his true character, a truth that will have dire consequences for all involved once revealed.

Tadena will portray Paolo Belleza, a fun-loving and charming guy with a breezy sense of humor and sexy confidence. Paolo owns and operates a “Turo Turo” food stall in Manila where he is loved by his community and has an intimate connection with the De La Rosa family.
Based on the hit original Argentine series, The Cleaning Lady follows Thony De La Rosa (Élodie Yung), a whip-smart Cambodian doctor who comes to the U.S. for medical treatment to save her ailing son, but 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 deeper entwined in the criminal underbelly of Las Vegas.
Fox promises the stakes are higher in Season 3 of the hit series and more intense than ever. From the mystery of Arman’s (Adan Canto) whereabouts to Thony’s efforts to bring Fiona (Martha Millan) back to the US after she was deported to the Philippines. As Thony’s journey continues to unfold, she is completely 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.
