Season two is set on a small island in the Caribbean where Veronica (Chriqui) and Roxie (Osment) think they are about to cash in, just to realize they have not escaped their past yet. The duo arranged to meet Eileen (Pyle) to split the $57 Million, but Eileen has embraced her dark side and has teamed up with Mother (Gershon) to have the girls erased. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Frank Barnes (Arquette) is recruited by CIA Agent Clarence Phillips (Snell), for an off the book mission - to bring Mother in.
Cleaners is written and directed by Paul Leyden with executive producers Chriqui, Anne Clements and Leyden, as well as John Schwarz, Michael Schwarz, Luca Scalisi, and Sam Worthington (Avatar) of Full Clip Productions.

The first season followed two gorgeous young women (Chriqui and Osment) who turn out to be a team of highly trained and lethal contract killers. While on an errand for their boss (Gershon), the job goes bad and they find a sedated 8-year-old boy (Jakob Salvati) in the trunk of their car. The duo quickly found themselves as the target of their boss' client, the FBI (Arquette) – and even their own boss whose team of assassins is now out to eliminate them to get the valuable boy back.
