The female assassins find themselves trying to take down a major drug cartel and are entangled in the trappings of Mother (Gershon), who is trying to hunt them down. All the while, Agent Barnes (Arquette) is on a mission to take down Mother.

New characters played by Esai Morales as Father Brooks, Omar Avila as Carlos, and David Rees Snell as Phillips, John Savage as Marcus Walker and Mimi Rogers as Isabelle Walker, add more twists to the thrilling plot for an all-new 12 episodes uncovering secrets, lies and ulterior motives.

The second season, written and directed by Paul Leyden (THE FACTORY), brings back executive producers Sam Worthington (AVATAR, CLASH OF THE TITANS), Emmanuelle Chriqui, John Schwarz ("McLeod's Daughters"), Michael Schwarz (OLIVER TWIST) and Luca Scalisi (TAILCHASER'S SONG, EMINEM: LIVE FROM NEW YORK CITY).

"Cleaners" is yet another addition to Crackle's acclaimed portfolio of original, award-winning content that includes the hugely successful suspense thriller "Chosen" starring Milo Ventimiglia, long-form anthology series "The Unknown" created by Chris Collins and starring Dominic Monaghan, and the Webby and Telly-Award winning series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" from Jerry Seinfeld and "From the Basement," the hit music series from Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.
