Kaley Cuoco’s TV comeback
Kaley Cuoco is back, but not as Penny from ‘The Big Bang Theory‘. Star and first-time executive producer, Cuoco plays the role of Cassandra Bowden on HBO Max’s new miniseries. The thriller show has managed to garner attention as it is also Cuoco’s latest venture after her memorable role on the long-running sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’. In an interview with “Hollywood Reporter“, Kaley accepted that nothing she’ll ever do would compare to the experience, the show, and the success of ‘The Big Bang Theory’. However, just from the trailer of ‘The Flight Attendant’, it seems like the perfect opportunity for her to make her big bang comeback.
Cuoco also spoke about how if season 2 of ‘The Flight Attendant’ gets renewed, they will be back to shooting it in January. She was further asked if ‘The Flight Attendant’ is a limited series? She answered:
“Hey, everything’s a limited series. If you don’t get picked up, you go, ‘Oh, that was just a limited series’. If you do get picked up, you’re like, ‘Yeah, fuck that. We’re doing season two!’
Griffin Matthews, who plays the role of Shane Evans, spoke to “PureWow” about how he hopes the show gets another shot. The reviews from the show have been really amazing, and also all the cast members get along really well.
Adding more fuel to the fire was executive producer/co-showrunner Steve Yockey’s confession to “Deadline“. He told the online news site that it is a limited series, and they have plans baked in. He acknowledged the fact that he has a great producing team and has a wonderful group of storytellers. He also thinks he has everything in place should the show move forward after this initial mystery.
Sadly, HBO hasn’t renewed ‘The Flight Attendant’ for season two yet.

Storyline of ‘The Flight Attendant’
‘The Flight Attendant’ lays out the perfect thriller enthralling premise from the very first episode. The HBO show’s main character Cassie Bowden is a flight attendant. Cassie meets Wall Street trader Alex Sokolov (Michiel Huisman) while working on a flight to Bangkok. They both end up going out for dinner. Cassie then wakes up to find her date (Alex) from the previous night, lying next to her, dead in a hotel room. Cassie has no memory of what happened.
She cleans up the entire crime scene and quickly travels back to New York. There she consults her lawyer friend Annie Mouradian (Zosia Mamet) for legal advice. Cassie’s drinking habits and not so good memory, make her an unreliable narrator. Cassie tries her best to piece together the traumatic night but is frequently taken back to her traumatic childhood. The thriller series showcases a subtle hint of comedy that is highly being appreciated by the audience. The flashback element in which the audience gets a peek into the mind of a dead character through Cassie, adds a touch of uniqueness.
