‘The Flight Attendant’ Is Getting a Second Season
Good news, Kaley Cuoco fans: The Flight Attendant is officially getting a second season.
HBO Max’s murder-thriller was officially renewed on December 18. “Heading to the airport to solve another crime,” the TV show’s Twitter account shared. “#TheFlightAttendant Season 2 has been cleared for lift off.” Despite how much this show actually spends on the ground, I will never get tired of the airplane puns.
In the first eight episodes of Steve Yockey’s chaotic dark comedy, which premiered on November 26, audiences were introduced to a troubled flight attendant, Cassie (Cuoco), and watched her spin out of control following the brutal murder of her latest hookup, Alex Sokolov (Michiel Huisman). After waking up in bed with his dead body, Cassie, a struggling alcoholic, tries desperately to solve his murder, even if that means putting those she loves in danger.
Don’t worry: She gets some help from her lawyer BFF, Annie (Zosia Mamet), and the imaginary version of Alex that still lives on in her head. Yes, this show is wild, and I love it.
Aside from taking on the starring role, Cuoco also serves as an executive producer after optioning the rights to the novel by Chris Bohjalian three years ago. “A lot of people said to me, ‘Oh, you’re obviously trying to get away from the character of Penny and find something darker,’” Cuoco told Glamour last month, “I really wasn’t. I was super happy playing Penny and was just looking for what the next project would be after Big Bang [Theory]. When I saw the cover of The Flight Attendant, I got this interesting chill up my spine and thought, ‘Oh, my God, I want to know more.’”
Clearly, there’s still more for Cuoco (and viewers) to learn and way more twists in store. We will keep this post updated as more details arise. Until then, you can read all about that shocking season finale, here.
