This morning during AT&T’s Investor Day, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar announced that HBO Max’s most-watched series The Flight Attendant will be debuting its second season in the spring 2022. No specific date was given as the writers room has recently gathered.
The genre-bending spy comedy earned star Kaley Cuoco — who produces the series through her Yes, Norman banner — her first two Golden Globe nominations in the Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical and Best Actress, TV Series – Comedy or Musical categories. The Flight Attendant also is up for two SAG Awards: Cast Ensemble, Comedy Series, and Cuoco for Best Female Actor, Comedy Series.
The show follows Cassie (Cuoco), an alcoholic flight attendant who, after a wild night with a first-class passenger, wakes up next to him with his throat cut. She becomes targeted by the feds as well as a global weapons mob ring as she tries to remember and investigate who the nice guy’s murderer is.
Cuoco teased to Deadline on Golden Globes nom day that Season 2 is bound to focus on Cassie’s “sober journey.”
“I think she’s going to learn very quickly that this is a lifelong struggle and she’s going to be way over her head,” the actress told Deadline.
Steve Yockey is the creator of The Flight Attendant. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions & Yes, Norman Productions. Greg Berlanti, Cuoco, Yockey and Sarah Schechter serve as EPs, and Suzanne McCormack is Co-EP.
The series is also nominated at the Art Directors Guild in the Contemporary Single-Camera Television Series for Sara K. White’s work, the DGAs for Susan Fogel’s direction of the pilot “In Case of Emergency” in the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Comedy Series, the PGAs in Outstanding Episodic Comedy Series, and the WGAs in the New Series category.
Kilar also announced a new upcoming ad-supported tier for HBO Max this AM.
