Should There Be a ‘Flight Attendant’ Season 3?

TV Shows

Will Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) get tangled up in another international mystery? That’s very much in question.

“I’m like, ‘Well, we did two. We should probably be done,’” Cuoco told People, admitting that there are people who want The Flight Attendant to continue with a Season 3. “I think for me, at this moment, the plane has landed,” she admitted.

The actress hasn’t ruled out returning to the role on the HBO Max series, explaining, “Some of my favorite shows on TV take some time to come back, and then I get very excited about a new season.”

For Cuoco, who also serves as an executive producer on the series, she’s interested in looking at “what could we do next?” when it comes to Cassie’s future destinations and sobriety — she ends the season with 30 days, after it was revealed she’d lied about being one year sober earlier.

That hesitance is in line with what executive producer Steve Yockey told TV Insider when discussing the potential of the show continuing after the May 26 Season 2 finale. “We really don’t know [what a Season 3 could look like],” he said. “Our plan was always that with each additional season, we would do a new standalone case that would have a beginning, middle, and an end that would bring our characters back in some unexpected way, trapped in a new sort of weird international mystery. It worked for Season 2. We’re both very happy with how it’s landed with audiences. I think it would work with a Season 3. The big question is always what’s Cassie’s emotional story. If we can figure out what that is, then we’d be happy to do a Season 3.”

The series did begin based on Chris Bohjalian’s novel, the mystery of which was part of its first season, and so it’s not like there’s source material to go back to for what could come next. The second season ended with Cassie resolving two threats, including a mystery in which she was framed by the CIA regional director, Dot (Cheryl Hines), and a situation that led to her accepting all parts of herself (and the other versions of herself disappearing in her mind palace). Plus, she was in perhaps the best place we’ve seen her: sober and taking steps to fix her relationship with her mother, Lisa (Sharon Stone).

If there is another season, we have to wonder what that would mean for her sobriety and work with the CIA (she didn’t make the best decisions this season there), and if it’s perhaps better to leave Cassie where she is, moving forward in what seems to be a much healthier way than she has in the past.

So should there be a Flight Attendant Season 3? Let us know in the comments what you think.
