In a world behind high walls and luxury, the wealthy may believe they’re powerful in the comfort of their mansions, but it is the housekeepers who see all and know all.

It’s set to be a nail-biting second season as the popular drama series, Housekeepers, returns to Mzansi Magic. When you are a housekeeper to the wealthy, the clean-up never truly ends… but what’s thrillingly different is that taking care of these particular households involves mopping up a whole lot of felonies.
