The Flight Attendant Renewed For a Second Season at HBO Max
After successfully wrapping up its 8-episode first season yesterday, HBO Max has officially renewed creator Steve Yockey’s series adaptation of The Flight Attendant for a second season. It was originally set up as a limited series but due to its recent popularity and positive reviews, the streamer decided to extend the Kaley Cuoco-led series.
“We are delighted that the show has resonated so strongly with audiences and critics,” HBO and HBO Max COO Casey Bloys said in a statement. (via Deadline) “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.”
“To say that I am elated would be an understatement! The positive response to our show has surpassed all of our expectations and I’m so proud of the entire team behind its success,” Cuoco said.“I’m thrilled to continue my partnership with Team Berlanti, Steve Yockey, HBO Max and of course my beloved studio, Warner Bros. I have amazing partners in Suzanne McCormack and Mackenzie Shade at Yes, Norman Prods., where we are committed to delivering diverse and quality entertainment, including an exciting (and probably a little crazy) TFA season 2!!”
The Flight Attendant is a story of how an entire life can change in one night. A flight attendant (Cuoco) wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man – and no idea what happened. The dark comedic thriller is based on the novel of the same name by New York Times best-selling author Chris Bohjalian.
The series stars Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory, Harley Quinn), Michelle Gomez (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Rosie Perez (Birds of Prey), Colin Woodell (The Purge), T.R. Knight (Grey’s Anatomy), Zosia Mamet (Girls), Merle Dandridge (The Night Shift), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Nolan Gerard Funk (Glee) and Griffin Matthews.
The Flight Attendant is created and executive produced by Steve Yockey. It is also executive produced by Cuoco, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Meredith Lavander, Marcie Ulin, and Susanna Fogel.
