Season one of The Flight Attendant received glowing reviews from critics and TV fans alike, and even landed Kaley nominations at the Golden Globes and the Primetime Emmy Awards for her performance as Cassie.

The eight-part show is a retelling of the 2018 novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian and sees Cassie on the run from authorities after waking up in a hotel room in Bangkok next to a dead body.

A return date for the HBO show is yet to be announced, however, Kaley has been sharing updates on production for season two on her social media for a number of months now, meaning filming is well underway. Here's hoping for a 2022 release!

After the murder of Alex was tied-up at the end of season one, 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?
