'The Flight Attendant' is an HBO Max original coming drama mystery coming to the streaming site this fall. It follows the journey of Cassie Bowden, a flight attendant who wakes up in a hotel room in Dubai unaware of why there is a dead body next to her. While her hangover doesn't allow her to remember the details of the night, she wonders if she is the killer. Here is all you need to know about the series.


Release date

The first three episodes of 'The Flight Attendant' premiere on HBO Max Thursday, November 26, followed by the launch of two new episodes on December 3, two episodes on December 10, and the finale episode on December 17.


The official synopsis reads, "The Flight Attendant is a story of how an entire life can change in one night. A flight attendant (Kaley Cuoco) wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man – and no idea what happened. The dark comedic thriller is based on the novel of the same name by New York Times best-selling author Chris Bohjalian."

The triller, in our opinion, promises a hectic and exciting murder mystery. After meeting a man on a plane, flight attendant Cassie Bowden has a romantic fling only to end up waking up next to the man, who's dead. She remembers nothing from the night, all she can process are "flickers" of thoughts. Now, the FBI is after her, and she's wondering if she did it?
