The Flight Attendant isn't really a new series. But since it's only been available in limited platforms, it hasn't been able to reach its full potential yet.
And it's really unfortunate since the show stars Kaley Cuoco, who has an amazing talent for acting. Ever since the show came out in November 2020, it has only been available on HBO Max. This is why many are asking whether the show will ever be available to stream on Netflix. Here's what we know so far.
What Is The Flight Attendant About?
The Flight Attendant is actually based on a novel of the same title, written by Chris Bohjalian. It is a whodunnit-style series that follows an impulsive airline employee named Cassandra "Cassie" Bowden as she sleeps with one of her passengers in Thailand, who she finds dead in the morning. It is up to Cassie to discover who killed her date and how she got involved in this murder mystery despite her alcoholism-fueled trauma.
Who Stars in The Flight Attendant?
The Flight Attendant includes some pretty familiar names, such as:
- Kaley Cuoco (as Cassandra "Cassie" Bowden)
- Zosia Mamet (as Annie Mouradian)
- Michelle Gomez (as Miranda)
- Rose Perez (as Megan)
- T.R. Knight (as Davey)
- Michiel Huisman (as Alex Sokolov)
Will The Flight Attendant Ever Be On Netflix?
As of this writing, there is no word on when The Flight Attendant will be coming to Netflix. It is only currently available to stream on HBO Max since it is an HBO Max Original show.
Will There Be a The Flight Attendant Season 2?
Originally, The Flight Attendant was created as a miniseries with only eight episodes. But after its success, it was renewed for a second season; which already aired on April 2022.
The show also had a total of 12 Emmy nominations. Out of those nominations, it won the Emmy award for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music in 2021.
Season 2 welcomed Sharon Stone, who starred as Cassie's estranged mother. And after the events of the first season, Cassie is now a civilian asset of the CIA.
Will There Be a The Flight Attendant Season 3?
Shortly after The Flight Attendant Season 2 released, Cuoco was asked whether or not a third season would be in store. The actress responded that she felt "the plane has landed," signifying that a third season won't likely be returning.
But she clarified with Variety magazine:
“You’d think after 30 years in this business, I’d learned how to talk in interviews. But no, I still run my mouth. It hadn’t even aired yet. I’m like, ‘Guys, let’s sit for a second!’ Look, I’ve learned in my life never say never — that’s my biggest advice. So I’m definitely open to it.”
The actress also revealed that at a dinner party, she asked an update from the show's executive producer, Greg Berlanti:
“I was at a dinner a couple of weeks ago sitting next to [executive producer] Greg Berlanti, and there were a lot of people there so it was really hard to talk, but I whispered to him, and I’m like, ‘Third season?’ And he just nodded at me. I was like, ‘Wow.’ He didn’t even say anything. He nodded: Yup! I hadn’t thought about it in awhile, I think Season 2 was so heavy for me, that was a big part of it. And now having some separation. And again, we’d have to depend on what it would look like.”
Recently, however, Cuoco was reported to have signed a two-season deal for Peacock TV series, Based On A True Story. She stars as a realtor named Ava Bartlett.
Deadline reveals that the new deal will still allow her to reprise her role as Cassie in The Flight Attendant, should it be renewed for a third season.
