Clearly, there’s still more for Cuoco (and viewers) to learn and way more twists in store. Here’s everything we know so far:
Cassie is sober…and living in LA: Looks like The Flight Attendant is taking a page from the You handbook and moving its main character from the Big Apple to the City of Angels. However, unlike Joe Goldberg, the flight attendant will now be “living her best sober life in Los Angeles while moonlighting as a CIA asset in her spare time,” according to the new logline, per Entertainment Weekly. “But when an overseas assignment leads her to inadvertently witness a murder, she becomes entangled in another international intrigue.”
Many of the cast are returning: Aside from Cuoco, series regulars Zosia Mamet, Griffin Matthews, Deniz Akdeniz, and Rosie Perez will also return, along with guest stars T.R. Knight, Yasha Jackson, and Audrey Grace Marshall.
And here are some new faces: On September 24, HBO Max announced a series of new players. Mo McRae (Pitch) has been cast a Benjamin Berry, “a career CIA officer who may have a bad habit of getting a little too involved with his assets.” Meanwhile, Gabrielle, “a quick-tempered and calculating bounty hunter whose impulse control issues often get in the way of her job,” will be played by Callie Hernandez (Soundtrack). JJ Soria will play Gabrielle’s lover and fellow bounty hunter, Esteban, “who tries to keep a level head and stay focused on the job, but often gets just as heated as his girlfriend.”
Other new cast members include Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jessie Ennis (Mythic Quest), Jenny Mae Martin (Feel Good), Grace St. James, Margaret Cho (Good on Paper), Santiago Cabrera (Star Trek: Picard), and Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse).
The Flight Attendant is filming right now. According to EW, the series has begun production and is filming in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Reykjavik.
But what about the premiere date? The series is on track for a Spring 2022 premiere, according to TV Line.
