HBO Max Renews Kaley Cuoco Comedic Thriller ‘The Flight Attendant’ For Second Season

HBO Max Dec. 18 announced it has renewed for a second season the comedic thriller “The Flight Attendant” starring Kaley Cuoco. The eight-episode first season premiered Nov. 26 and had its finale on Dec. 17. The first season saw week-over-week growth and ranked as Max’s No. 1 series overall during its run. The entire first season is available to stream now on Max, which launched on May 27 priced at $14.99 monthly, $69.99 for six months.

Season one was based on the novel of the same name by New York Times best-selling author Chris Bohjalian and told the story of how an entire life can change in one night. Flight attendant Cassie Bowden (Cuoco) woke up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man — and no idea what happened. The season also starred Michiel Huisman, Rosie Perez, Zosia Mamet, Michelle Gomez, T.R. Knight, Colin Woodell, Merle Dandridge, Griffin Matthews and Nolan Gerard Funk. Season two will feature Cassie in a new adventure.
