The Cleaning Lady Names The Blacklist’s Daniel Cerone as Season 4 Showrunner

Consider The Cleaning Lady’s recent behind-the-scenes shakeup tidied.

Daniel Cerone (The Blacklist) will take over as showrunner for Season 4 of the Fox drama, TVLine has confirmed. Our sister site Deadline first reported the news.

The Cleaning Lady’s 12-episode renewal in May came with the news that Miranda Kwok, who developed the series, and Jeannine Renshaw, who served as co-showrunners on Season 3, will not be returning in that capacity for Season 4. Kwok reportedly will be an executive consultant on the upcoming season and will continue to develop projects for Warner Bros. Television, which produces The Cleaning Lady.

The crime drama’s third season was deeply affected by the death of male lead Adan Canto, who passed away from appendiceal cancer in January. Because the show’s writers had initially hoped to bring Canto back later in Season 3 after he’d completed treatment, his character, Arman Morales, was initially kidnapped in the season premiere and left offscreen, whereabouts unknown, for several episodes. Ultimately, in the season’s sixth outing, Arman’s fate was revealed.

In addition to The Blacklist, Cerone’s TV resumé includes Charmed, Dexter, Dirty Sexy Money, Nightflyers, The Mentalist and Constantine.
