Cassie (Kaley Cuoco) might not be able to fly away from this all-encompassing mystery.
Emmy-winning HBO Max Original series “The Flight Attendant” returns for Season 2 on Thursday, April 21, and this time, Cassie has more than a few voices of reason in her head. After becoming sober and moving in with her new boyfriend in Los Angeles, Cassie promises that her “life is pretty great” despite the tense events of the first season (you know, almost dying while uncovering an international corporate conspiracy…the usual). Check out the Season 2 trailer below.
Plus, now Cassie is an official asset for the CIA. But while her best friend Annie (Zosia Mamet) warns Cassie that it seems like she’s “living in a spy novel,” fact becomes stranger than fiction. Cassie is convinced that someone is trying to frame her for a major crime — even going out of their way to become her.
The “Vertigo” doppelgänger effect proves that the more Cassie’s, the more concerns, and Cassie’s many versions of herself threaten to unravel everything. And when Cassie witnesses a murder abroad, she can’t quite keep it together.
“The Flight Attendant” debuts April 21 with two episodes. The eight-episode season continues with two new episodes April 28, followed by one episode weekly concluding May 26. Season 2 was filmed in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Reykjavik.
Mamet, Griffin Matthews, Deniz Akdeniz, and Rosie Perez return as main cast members, along with recurring guest stars T.R. Knight, Yasha Jackson, and Audrey Grace Marshall. The second season also stars new series regulars Mo McRae, Callie Hernandez and JJ Soria, with appearances by Sharon Stone, Alanna Ubach, Cheryl Hines, Jessie Ennis, Mae Martin, Margaret Cho, Santiago Cabrera, and Shohreh Aghdashloo.
