Spoilers for 'The Flight Attendant' Season 1 and novel authored by Chris Bohjalian
Season 1 of 'The Flight Attendant' was a thrilling murder mystery but for those who have read the novel authored by New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian, this was no surprise. The series has officially released eight episodes with Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) to find out who had killed Alex Sokolov (Michiel Huisman) after she wakes up next to his dead body after fun and booze-filled night in Bangkok. Without giving too much away, it wasn't a "whodunnit" situation. There is a lot more to why Alex was murdered and Cassie needs to find out so she can be exonerated. Since the series made quite a buzz, you may be wondering if there is a Season 2 coming up. Here is all you need to know about that possibility.
HBO hasn’t officially renewed 'The Flight Attendant' for another season, stay tuned for updates.
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."
If you've watched the series and read the novel, it isn't hard to notice that the first season definitely allows more room for another season since Bohjalian's novel has more to offer.
While the story was initially to be a limited series with its first season of 8 episodes, we may have already gotten a clue that it may not be the end. According to Deadline, Cuoco has already said there are "plans" for another season. She had brought upon the series after falling in love with the book. The Flight Attendant executive producer/co-showrunner Steve Yockey also added, "It is a limited series, and we have plans baked in… We have a great producing team, we are a wonderful group of storytellers. I think we have everything in place should the show move forward after this initial mystery.”
