Kaley Cuoco will be joined by Mo McRae, Callie Hernandez and JJ Soria on “The Flight Attendant” for its second season. The three actors will be series regulars on the HBO Max show, along with Season 1’s regulars Zosia Mamet, Griffin Matthews and Deniz Akdeniz, as well as new recurring guest stars Cheryl Hines, Jessie Ennis, Mae Martin, Margaret Cho, Santiago Cabrera and Shohreh Aghdashloo. In addition, T.R. Knight, Yasha Jackson, Audrey Grace Marshall and Rosie Perez are set to return for Season 2.
Per the logline, the second season of the dramedy finds Cassie Bowden (Cuoco) living a sober life in Los Angeles while moonlighting as a CIA asset in her spare time. But when an overseas assignment leads her to inadvertently witness a murder, she becomes entangled in another international intrigue. The show has begun production and will be shooting in Los Angeles, Berlin and Reykjavik.
