Kaley Cuoco Teases What’s to Come in ‘The Flight Attendant’ Season 2
Great news, The Flight Attendant fans! HBO Max previously announced that the mystery drama is getting renewed for season two. And now, Kaley Cuoco (Cassie) just teased what’s to come in the new episodes.
Read on for what we know about The Flight Attendant season two, plus exclusive details on how Griffin Matthews (Shane) feels about reuniting with the cast.
1. Is 'The Flight Attendant' returning for season 2?
The Flight Attendant was renewed for season two back in December 2020. Per Deadline, Casey Bloys (chief content officer of HBO and HBO Max) said, “We are delighted that the show has resonated so strongly with audiences and critics. We congratulate Kaley, Steve, Greg and Sarah, along with the rest of the incredibly talented cast, executive producers and our partners at Warner Bros. Television on all the success of the first season. I look forward to seeing where Cassie will go next.”
Before the news of a second season was even confirmed, Matthews exclusively told us that he hoped the cast would “get another shot.”
The actor went on to describe the on-set dynamics and revealed that he’d love to reunite with his co-stars. “Look, the reviews from the show have been really amazing, and we all truly—it's so boring to say it—but we all really got along. We all love each other,” he told PureWow. “It was like one of the most lighthearted groups, maybe because we were also traveling together. You know, it felt like adult summer camp.”
Fortunately for Matthews, summer camp will be back in session.
2. What is 'The Flight Attendant' about?
The limited series tells the story of a flight attendant named Cassandra “Cassie” Bowden (Cuoco), who’s trying to remember what happened the night prior. Although her memory is a blur, she knows something sinister occurred, since she’s laying next to a dead body.
According to Matthews, there’s far more to each of the characters than meets the eye. “What I can tell you is that every character on that show has a secret,” he said. “The most exciting part of the series is that you’re constantly navigating your expectations for what you think is happening, what you think will happen, who you think people are.”
3. Who's in the cast?
In addition to Matthews and Cuoco, The Flight Attendant also stars Michiel Huisman (Alex), Zosia Mamet (Annie), T. R. Knight (Davey), Michelle Gomez (Miranda), Colin Woodell (Buckley), Merle Dandridge (Kim), Nolan Gerard Funk (Van White) and Rosie Perez (Megan).
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cuoco confirmed that Huisman returning for season two is highly unlikely. “I don’t think he will,” she said. “Cassie is going to have to face some of her own demons in the mind palace, especially now trying to stay sober.”
4. What can fans expect to see in season 2?
According to Cuoco, season two won’t disappoint. Although little is known about the plot, the actress revealed that the new episodes will further explore Cassie’s opportunity with the CIA. (You know, the one Shane mentioned in the finale.)
“This is not all of a sudden going to be Cassie is a superspy,” she told EW. “I think there will be a little bit of the CIA-asset stuff, on the side.”
