Kaley Cuoco's The Flight Attendant Could Fill The You-Shaped Hole In Your TV Viewing

For those struggling to contain their anticipation for the third season of YouYou, there's thankfully a new thriller flying towards us, as the creators of the Netflix favourite have brought us The Flight Attendant.


Early trailers suggest viewers are in for a world of suspense and intrigue, with former Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco starring as the titular flight attendant whose life is turned upside down after a post-flight stopover in Bangkok.

Based on the novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian, the series is coming out on HBO Max in the United States, premiering over there on 26 November. Given the channel's deal with Sky Atlantic, it's hoped that we'll be able to see it soon in the UK too.

The show sees Cuoco's character Cassie Bowden - a flight attendant, funnily enough - become involved in a one-night stand with a handsome businessman on one of her flights.

Eventually landing at their destination of Bangkok, they head out to dinner together before winding up back at his hotel room.

It's the morning after when things start to go wrong, though, as Cassie wakes up to discover the man who'd shared her bed is now dead. Yikes.

Fearful of calling the police, the scared flight attendant instead joins the rest of her crew on the return flight to New York City, but once back home she finds herself being questioned by the FBI.

As the trailers hints, there's a suggestion that Cassie may remember more about that night than she's letting on.

At one point in the clip, she's asked why decided to clean up after discovering the body. It's something that she can't answer. So is she hiding something? Or is she hiding some sort of trauma, something that's been explored elsewhere on shows like The Sinner?

Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Starring alongside Cuoco in the show are Zosia Mamet (Girls), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Rosie Perez (Rise), TR Knight (Grey's Anatomy) and Colin Woodell.

Like many shows, it has been delayed due to the coronavirus epidemic, with production only resuming in August.

Nevertheless, it's understandable that there's such excitement around the show, given the acclaim that You has received since coming to Netflix.

Berlanti Productions is listed among the production credits for the mini-series, with Greg Berlanti -who developed the hit psychological thriller - attached as an executive producer.

You's first season aggregated 93% on the reviews site Rotten Tomatoes, with the second averaging out at 88%, with the show becoming a cult classic.

It's early days but the signs are looking similarly promising for The Flight Attendant.
