“The Flight Attendant” Cancelled: Kaley Cuoco’s Max Series Grounded After Two Seasons

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kaley Cuoco’s hit Max series, “The Flight Attendant,” has been cancelled after two seasons, according to sources. The Warner Bros. Discovery streamer had been considering a third season, but the star and executive producer Cuoco decided against returning to the role.

Based on the novel by Chris Bohjalian, “The Flight Attendant” follows the story of Cassie, an alcoholic flight attendant who becomes entangled in a world of espionage after waking up to find a dead man in her hotel bed. The first season, originally billed as a limited series, was well-received and garnered Cuoco two Emmy nominations. The success led to the order of a second season, where the character delves into another mystery as she works as a CIA asset.

In a statement, Cuoco expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to bring Cassie to life and thanked the creative team for delivering two thrilling seasons. Creator and executive producer Steve Yockey added that the show had found success with viewers and critics alike, making it a true passion project for them.

Since the conclusion of “The Flight Attendant,” both Cuoco and Yockey have ventured into other projects. Cuoco stars in and executive produces “Based on a True Story” at Peacock, which recently received a second season pickup. She also lends her voice to the animated series about the DC Comics antihero, Harley Quinn. Meanwhile, Yockey has an overall deal at Warner Bros. TV and is co-showrunner for the upcoming Max-turned-Netflix series, “Dead Boy Detectives.”

As fans bid farewell to “The Flight Attendant,” they can look forward to Cuoco and Yockey’s future endeavors in the entertainment industry.
