There's not yet confirmation of dates regarding series two, but HBO is yet to begin production on the new episodes so fans are set to wait a little longer to see Cassie take flight once again.

The end of series one sees the murder of Alex Sokolov finally resolved. Cassie's friend, Buckley, was revealed towards the end of the show as being an undercover hitman named Felix, who was ordered to murder businessman and Cassie's love-interest, Alex, in his hotel room by criminal boss, Victor.

Now the murder has been tied-up, it's possible that series two could focus on a new case that comes to light during Cassie's jet-setting life as a flight attendant. Fans are no doubt hoping for more information regarding Cassie's ex-colleague, Megan, who was discovered to be working within espionage for the Korean government and on the run from the law.

It then transpired that their other colleague, Shane, was in fact working for the CIA and trying to uncover Megan's crimes and even offered Cassie a job as an agent – could this be the arc for season two? We can't wait to find out! 

The Flight Attendant series one is available to watch on Sky TV and NOW.
